Gold Medal Ride


It was a strange day today and I almost didn't make it out and it's all team Canada's fault. Although waking up at 5 am to watch hockey has to be the most Canadian thing to do ever. So in that respect I felt incredibly patriotic as I sat and watched Team Canada win Olympic Gold while I poured maple syrup on my pancakes. I could cry because that felt so awesome. The plan was to ride right after the game but I was toast. Do I blame last night's 8.5% beer (and maybe a few more) for ruining me? No, I'll keep using Team Canada as a scapegoat because I am a giant douchebag. When the game was over the day turned into couch/ television day and that is a very very bad thing.

Thankfully I finally got off my ass and did a short loop in a very bone chilling river valley this evening. This I think is officially the coldest ride this Winter season on a short ten km loop from the Queen to the High Level where a stop to warm up at the Kinsmen sports centre lobby was crucial. I am still chilled from the ride and hope to warm up by sometime mid week.

that pylon cost the tax payers $10,500
