Simon Blythe (41) has always loved cycling. Shortly after turning 3 he took his big sisters bicycle and taught himself how to ride on two wheels. Since then, he has always had at-least one bicycle close at hand.
It was back in 2003, during his recovery from a serious medical operation, that he started to really commit to the hours and hours of training that are necessary in-order to compete in such a sport. He competed in his first mountain bike race in 2005 & has been hooked ever since.
He met his wife, Tamara Blythe, 10 years ago while out for a bike ride. They have shared their love of the sport together ever since. Last summer they competed together and won the co-ed class of the BC Bike Race.
