…which is why I would be willing to take a small sabbatical from Prairie riding to serve as the Land of Waterfalls writer/rider-in-residence (LoWWRIiR). As the successful candidate, I would be honoured to share the awesomeness of the Transylvania County road riding through Strava posts, capturing the epic climbs, big miles and amazing scenery. Also there’d be inspiring Instagram photos from the road, local breweries and cafés.

I can’t wait for an epic, and I hope sunny, adventure on two wheels.
