Mid-Season Report




Summer has officially begun, which means that the cycling season has reached its midpoint!  Lex Albrecht began 2019 racing team TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank's North American calendar, the other race program having played out in Europe.

"It's been cool to begin this year in North America.  The past few years I have spent most of the early season in Europe on long blocks for the Spring Classics.  Right now I am training for the Canadian National Championships which will be held in Beauce, Québec during the last week of June."

Following the National Championships, Lex will take part in the Tour Charles Bruneau 2-day trek for which she is an ambassador and spokesperson.  The ride that goes from Gatineau, QC to Boucherville QC raises funds for children living with and in remisson from cancer.  "This is a very important cause for me, and an event that I look forward to every year.  It's really special to meet and spend time with the children that the Fondation Charles Bruneau helps, as we ride over 2 days.  Anyone who joins in on this ride is pretty much garunteed to return every year for life... the experience is that amazing."

Tickets are booked for Lex to fly to Prague to reuinte with European racing the second week of July.  "I'll start of with the Tour Feminin stage race in the Czech Republic, and then compete at La Course in France (Tour de France's women's event) and Ride London in England.  In the meantime, I will be making the most of my precious time at home to get in some solid training on familiar roads, rack up some extra mileage on my motorcycle, and give my trusty espresso machine all of the love that it deserves!"

Bike selfie. I do this sometimes to see what my face looks like when I feel this happy. Just to check. Lol. #AdventureSeeker #senabluetooth #girlswhoride #motorcyclelife #motorcyclehelmets

I MADE MY OWN #HORCHATA! And I made it with maple syrup from Québec. And it's DELICIOUS. And I think it could win the #maplesyrup recipe challenge! Please give it a vote by clicking the link in my bio! (The video showing how to make the recipe - 4 ingredients and a few minutes - is on my YouTube channel and the latest blog on www.lexalbrecht.com). THANKS FOR VOTING FOR MY CANADIAN HORCHATA! #erable #erableduquebec #érable maplesyruprecipes #veganrecipes #horchatarecipe #homemadehorchata #vitamixrecipe
New quarantine reflex: stock up on the good stuff. @eightouncecoffee has a whole bunch of #thirdwavecoffee roasters' products available online right now. Pretty fun to shop for them all in one place! Current stock: @detourcoffee, and pulling shots with the #Leverpresso. #CAFN8me #coffee #coffeebeans #thirdwavecoffee #espresso #leverpressocoffee #portablecoffeemaker #manualespresso #manualespressomachine #detourcoffee #detourroasters #th3rdwave
I was on my bike and this girl was playing her violin at the riverside. I like to think she was enjoying doing her thing, as much as I was enjoying doing mine. #fromwhereiride #cyclinglife #cyclistlife #ruralroads #riverside #violin #violinist #violinistsofinstagram #musicinnature #springtime
New battery day. I love that I can change my @4iiiicom's battery myself, that it takes the same size as my kitchen scale and my bathroom scale, and that the trusty dolla store sells them. Easy to find, easy to do. That leaves efforts for other stuff! #4iiii #4iiiipowermeter #4iiiiprecision #4iiiipodiiiium #4iiiicom #4iiiiambassador #4iiiinnovations #4iiii_powermeter #cyclistsofinstagram #cyclist #cyclinggirl #powermeter #powermetertraining #poweredby4iiii
I am a gently-hit-two-birds-with-one-stone kinda girl. For example, I almost always do something while brushing my teeth, and I also try to pick my mid-ride pee-break spots wisely : where there's something interesting to look at, that I might otherwise never get to see. Like this stuff. #aglife #cyclistlife #rurallife #farmlife #quebec #canada #fromwhereiride #fromwhereimictate
Good thing I had some #homegym tools on hand other than exercise bands (those darn things keep snapping like there's no tomorrow). I like my #workout tools like I like my strength and stability for riding and running: SOLID. #elasticbandproblems #cyclistlife #homegym #coreworkout #corestrength #corestrengthening #corestrengthtraining #corestrengtheningexercises
Socially distanced group riding formation. (Le Roi du Parc et sa blonde ont le droit aux selfies rapprochés.) I love riding my BIKE. I love riding my bike in great places even more. I love riding my bike in great places, with great people even more than that! #livingthedream #rideconnected #adventureseeker #senar1 #senabluetooth #fromwhereIride #Garneau
I ran out of prepared meals on the weekend. It was a mess. No, I was a mess, on the couch post-training, waiting for the lunch fairy to show up. She didn't. The freezer is stocked again. Problem solved. #cyclistproblems #cyclistsolutions #athletelife #mealprep #mealprepideas #mealprepping #inmyfreezer #freezermeals #freezerstash #freezercooking #freezerfriendly
