CREATURES OF NORTHSIDE | ISSUE #15 | Lewis Ciddor. This legend just won an incredible race from Canada to México. Find out more about it in this little interview we did. Congrats @xshippx!
Q: Could you tell us a bit more about this mega race (name, starting point, time, etc)?
A: It’s called Tour Divide. A 4400km mountain bike race from Banff, Canada to the Mexican border at Antelope Wells, New Mexico. It’s self supported meaning you have to carry all your own food and gear. I finished first overall in 15 days and 2 hours.
Q: What was your going to the toilet strategy?
A: The clock never stops even when you’re sleeping, eating or....peeing! So usually I’d just pull over to the side of the road and pee while still on the bike! Don’t judge me!
Q: What song did you listen to the most during this extremely long ride?
A: Lots of cheesy, catchy stuff like Drake that I could sort of dance around to and use to help keep me awake.
Q: Did you have any extreme encounters with beings from this planet or any foreign ones?
A: I saw a moose, a black bear, and heard some wolves howling off in the distance one night as I fell asleep in my bivy. Surprisingly didn’t see any strange beings despite all the sleep deprivation but I did have some strange encounters with myself!
Q:If you could name a bouldering problem what would it be?
A: Relentless forward progress
