The May Long Weekend   Leave a comment

Here it is the Canada’s Victoria Day long weekend. Last year on this weekend I was off cycling the Golden Triangle with a group from the Edmonton Bicycle and Touring Club (EBTC). This year I am at home , with garden clean-up at the top of my plans. Cycling is however also in my plans. I am glad that I am not riding the GT or the Silver Triangle that EBTC members are doing this year. Not that I wouldn’t love to be out touring. The fact is though that I just haven’t been cycling enough this year yet to be able to handle 100K days and mountain passes.  I have yet to even get my touring or road bikes prepped for riding – but sometime this weekend that will happen.

If you are interested in reading about, and seeing some photos from, my Golden Triangle ride last year, here are the links:

Have a great weekend!
