Three Things Thursday

  • Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour has been and gone.  What a fantastic time!!!  Hilly, hilly, HILLY!  If someone tells you that there are just some rolling hills, don't believe them, because a roller coaster has rolling hills too!!!  One hill I went down doing 52K per hour and on the up side I was down to 9K, there may have even been some swearing!  Fantastic weather on the Saturday ~ Sunday not so good what with monsoon rains, gale force winds and a temperature of 9C.   (a full report on that to follow).
Good friends, of course we never have any fun.  

Because there were so many of us riding, I didn't get the chance to see some of the Wooo Hooo's until we got to Kingston, but they had a great time and stories of their own to tell!!!


  • Tuesday night was the second in the Beaver Chase Trail Run Series, I shaved almost a full minute off of last months race time.  Whoot!!!  Tonight is the second trail run with a group I joined.  Holy schnitzzzz they are fast and over rough terrain.  I hope I can keep up!!!

  • Hopefully they will come to dig my well next week, I'm still hooked up to my neighbour's house via garden hose.   I'm on vacay this week and boy you just don't realise how much you depend upon clean, fresh, running water.   I had prepared  everything to make a nice vegetable soup and  realised I didn't have enough bottled water to put in the pot!!!!   So, I'm off to buy more water...

Life's fun if you don't weaken,

Am I the only one laughing at the "Beaver Chase"?

Stories about running or riding with the friends is always worth the wait :-)

Good luck running with the fasties on the trail! Don't sprain an ankle on a root!

...may have been some swearing ;-D ?

Yeah, rollers are exhausting. Forever going up, and then flying downhill - right into another climb. I see it so clearly when graphing my Garmin by time vs distance.

Great report!

It must have been an amazing weekend of riding! Congratulations on a big, tough ride!

Hope your new well is drilled soon. I cannot imagine being without water for that long!
