Podcast Episode 16: Riding the BC Epic 1000 Under a Heat Dome

When Cory Ostertag and Angela Chang decided to sign up for the BC Epic 1000 they knew it wasn’t going to be easy but did they know it was going to be this hot? In this episode of the Cycling BC podcast, we talk to Cycling BC staffer Cory Ostertag and recent Cycling BC board member-elect, Angela Chang, about their experience riding the BC Epic 1000.

The BC Epic 1000 is a gruelling 1,000+ km self-supported ultra-endurance bikepacking race through south-central BC. They did this race all while temperatures in the province soared to record-breaking highs. Listen to their account of how they planned, managed, finished, and survived the BC Epic 1000 under BC’s extreme heat dome.
