Back in the Saddle

My new Manitou Black Platinum fork came in on Saturday, I took the bike in to PedalHead at 1 pm and had it back by 5 pm. Went riding with Kim Sat night, didn't ride Sunday, or Monday but rode to work yesterday and today. This morning I passed the 2000 km mark for 2004. That 125% of my original 2004 goal of 1600 km. 2000 km was my goal for 2005.

The next big mile stone (km stone?) for me is the 2200 km mark. Anyone want to guess why?

I'm loving the new fork the lock out feature that lets me adjust how stiff the fork is on the fly. As I climb up out of fish creek I can reach down and flick the lock out to 75%, then as I reach to top of the hill I can set it back to 50%. Not sure what setting I'll use for trail ridding, but it's easy to experiment.

- Peace

Anything to do with the Trans Canada Trail?

When complete, Alberta will embrace approximately 2200 km of the TCT land route.

Eventually 2,200 km of the Trans Canada Trail will cross the province linking both the east-west route and the northern route to the Arctic.

No, I don't think you're going to find it by googling 2200 km, though A+ for persistance. The answer is in the archiver here though. But you'll have to put A and B togher.

At least I give hints, unlike you Mr. can't wait till November.

I was gonna guess 2200 was the distance from Calgary to Fredericton but that turned out to be 2200 miles :(
