Not Exactly Goat Creek & 2100km

Ridders Among the RocksMost years I gather a group of people in June & October to ride Goat Creek Trail. Just after the ride in June the Goat Creek bridge was washed out in the epic floods that hit southern Alberta.

The bridge is still out, so yesterday we rode from Canmore to Banff via the Rundle Riverside trail.  A far tougher trail.  That 8km section took about 2hours to do.  Roots, rocks and mud.

Still a good time was had by all, and we found these cool rocks at the Banff end of the trail.

Canmore Evening View @ 2100kmThe 50km ride wasn't quite enough to put me at the 2100km mark, so I got a lift up to Whitman's pass and came back down to the Nordic Center to finish things off.  Hit the 2100km with a beautiful view of Canmore in the early evening.

We then hit the Grizzly Paw for supper.  You've got to try the Elk Burger, that's good eating!

Next Goal is to hit 2200km by Thursday, cause I'm off to San Francisco on Friday.

2000km in the Dark

Street Light Glow @ 2000kmHit the1999km mark Sunday night on the way home from Thanks Giving Dinner with friends.

Did a 1km loop in the neighbour hood to put me over the 2000km mark.

Had aimed to hit the 2000km mark on the 10th, but life got in the way.

Next goal is to hit the 2100km mark on Saturday when we'll be doing the "Not Exactly Goat Creek" ride between Canmore and Banff.  Let me know if you'd like to come.

One Million Views on Flickr

Question MarkHit the one million views mark on my flickr account yesterday.  Don't know what it means.

I remember 10cent passing that mark years ago.

D'Arcy Norman hit the 2m mark before giving up flickr, and then coming back.

Don't know what view put me over, but my most viewed picture for the day was Question Mark, racking up 17 views for the day.

So I hit the million views with a big question mark.  That fits :)

Ride for Refuge & 1900km

Team ConvergeRode the Ride for Refuge yesterday as part of Team Converge. Thanks to everyone who sponsored us; we raised $2515 for ACT Alberta.
Cheering @1900km

Rohadi and I signed up for the 50km version of the ride. I would have been happy with any time in the 2:30 - 3:00 hour range.

With a couple of detours (missed a sign, stopped at the 40km to say happy birthday to a friend) the ride was just under 54km and I came in at the 2:31 mark :)

Hit the the 1900km while passing cheering volunteers.

Next goal is to hit 2000km by Oct 10th.
