Frozen testicular syndrome - FTS

Known more commonly as FTS in my training vernacular this syndrome is most common to the cyclist with poor riding posture, no cycling shorts, and perhaps a prostrate un-friendly cycling seat. I googled the term and, having found nothing on the web, would like to claim rights to the FTS-frozen testicular syndrome name.
The syndrome need not be explained in detail but suffice to say that a combination of a poor seat and ambient temperatures of 10 degrees celsius or less causes the rider grief.

The Blog

My name is Malcolm and I was a volunteer at Canuck Place Children's Hospice in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for nearly seven years. Now I support them by raising money by participating in the Canuck Place Adventure Challenges!

I said hospice. Not really a word that you associate with children but there you go. We will tell you about the house as this blog progresses with the hope that you will learn, and as you learn we hope that you will share. The purpose of the Adventure Challenge is to raise money for AND awareness about Canuck Place.

The name of each kid at the house you read about has been changed.

September 14th and 15th are the dates for the next Adventure Challenges.

You can sponsor me for the race here: Adventure Challenge
Maybe you should do the race?


Just a quick note about the names of the kids in the house that you will read about: they are made up!
