Can Am Tour

I just wanted to thank those who organized the tour yesterday. It was a wonderful day with lots of interesting and different experiences. Friendly motorists, for one! Just one quibble, couldn’t they have arranged for the wind to be behind us the whole way? That was a tough section from Walhalla to the border.

Hopefully this isn’t the last ride of the jumping castle season. (Who’d have believed I’d be saying that?)

  1. I’d like to add my thanks too! Special thanks to Merle, Paul Krahn and Lorne (forgot your last name). You fellows arranged for our safety by having a car with a flashing light accompany us for a good part of ride. And thanks Lorne for your guidance as well as your hospitality and refreshments at your home. Paul Harakal did a great job of photographing the ride. Thanks Paul.

  2. Big siiiiiigh! Dang it, that looks like it was alot of fun! I could of used Curt Rempel while you guys were out riding. I was sitting at a table with gov’t reprentatives from the “Axis of Evil”, North Korea, discussing food security and organic farming, of all things. Ah well, at least I have a new story for our next breakfast ride!

  3. Ditto on the kudos to the organizers of this GREAT and MEMORABLE ride. The hospitality was second to none and the route most enjoyable. The talk about a similar route next year although starting a bit further west was also exciting and a “look forward to” event for 2009. We were blessed with a fantastic weather day and a safe route from start to finish. The Americans really know how to take care of their “green” Canadian cousins. I also appreciated the chance to share the road with cyclists from Yan Zeed (spelling?) and beyond. Guess we’ll have to put the American and Canadian flags on our website now to show the international flavor of the MIT’s.

  4. I’m really sorry to have missed this ride – sounds like it was fantastic. I’m especially sorry to have missed the chance to chat with Lorne again who me and my mom did the same week of the 2006, Bike For Bibles Centennial Ride with.
    I look forward to being a part of it next year – we have to make this an annual event, right?!

  5. Yea it was a good ride. Tough last 26 km into that wind, but we managed. Appriecate the effort of Paul, Merle who help put it together. Enjoyed the Icelandic park, couple of the hills, being the toast of Cavilier and the hospitality of Lorne’s home.
    Just another epic ride. Nice pics Paul, need your thin lense next year. Looking forward to next year’s Can Am.
