Is anyone here planning to ride the Tour de l'Alberta?
I hadn't been, but then I hadn't heard about it either.Originally Posted by Machka
Could be persuaded.
“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.” Robert A. Heinlein
As mentioned elsewhere, I just have to figure out how to get self & bike up there...
One of the summer student workers here just got his first road bike and is all fired up about the idea of the Petit Tour.
I registered for the big C on a lark. I road lots up to 7 years ago and recently put my Allez back on the road when gas hit $1.20/L in May.
I've trained since early July by watching the TDF and having the odd Corona.
Anyway, I would give almost anything to know where I put my Avocet computer and Speedplay pedals.
If you bump into or pass a guy in black on a specialized rig with downtube shifters, that is probably me.
For those riding tomorrow, good luck, may the legs be strong, the road smooth and the wind at our back.
Good luck, everyone! I'll be with you in spirit and will hopefully get to join you all next time
