Once winter arrives in Toronto, it’s harder to find opportunities to keeping hiking and cycling (at least for me). I’m don’t enjoy in-door gyms so I definitely seek out alternative ways to keep in shape or train for hikes.
My usual preferences are to cycle and walk a lot (I don’t like running), but that doesn’t really work so well in the winter right?
That said, I’ve begun testing out an approach by throwing a bunch of stuff into an 80 litre pack, strapping it on and taking the staircase in the house — up and down for about 30 or 40 times. Perhaps I’ll start trudging through the snow with this 80 litre pack too and throw on some snowshoes.
More to come.
