THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO CAME OUT TODAY. IT WAS A BLAST. SEE Y'ALL DOWNTOWN TOMORROW.
UPDATE: Joelle and I are also planning to head into Black Diamond for the Start Festival for 10:30 am. Any and all are welcome to join, but the plan is still to be at the church for 12:00 pm.
BTW: This ride is on rain or shine.
I'm calling a Speed Theory GranFondo for Saturday, Sept 7. It will be a fairly relaxed Fondo, mostly consisting of cruising around Stage 4 of the Tour of Alberta.
Here's the plan:
- I suspect parking will be a nightmare at the 22X/37 Ave gravel lot, so I've arranged parking at Millerville Community Church, which is right on the race route. I know the pastor and he's avid cyclist and former racer, so it's all on the up and up.
- Meeting time: 12:00 pm
We'll ride down to the junction with Hwy 22 and Hwy 549, watch the racers pass, and then work our way up to the KOM on TWP 274, watch the racers again (twice), and hopefully blitz our way back to the north junction of 22/549 to see them a fourth time.
Come one, come all, and bring friends. This is a ride for chatting and relaxing.
TOA Stage Four Map is here.
