ProGold Hits Canada!

WOW…being from Georgia where it is so steamy hot in the summer, Canada is a great place to hang in July! . I am in Quebec, Montreal, and Toronto, for the last two weeks. Hmm…no, not a vacation per say. :)

Let’s start with Quebec. It is an awesome place to go visit and ride around the old city of Quebec and check out the sites, bike paths, and French-speaking Canadians. I saw some of the most amazing views of the mighty Saint Lawrence River. And, I had a great meeting with Andre of Lambert Cycles. I also enjoyed sushi by the river… of course after an awesome road bike adventure with the ProGold Extreme Lube. One coating of this superb lube lasts well over 100 miles. I promise you that it doesn’t get any better!

I swung by Montreal on the way back for a quick stop and mountain bike ride at the Coaticook Gorge Trail. Then it was back in the ProGold Van for a journey to the Durham Forest in Ontario and a stay at the Hawks Nest. I stayed in a cabin from 1812 across the street from the Durham Forest mountain biking trails. I also rode my bike through a ‘posion ivy forest’ in the Ganaraska Forest one hour east of Toronto. This trail, I promise you, is a great trail except for the 4-6 feet high wall of poison ivy on each side of the 12 inch trail. Great Stuff. Once I was back in the parking lot from the poison ivy forest, I washed off with ProGold Bike Wash (just kidding, not really). Then I was off to a meeting with the Durham Mountain Bike Association or DMBA www.durhammountainbiking.ca. They are a 500-strong mountain bike community of Canadians, EH!

The rest of the week was filled with shop stops and meeting with local clubs. This weekend it is the Duke’s Summer Epic 8 Hour Relay at Hardwood Hills Mountain Bike Venue. I can’t wait for this. The ProGold peddlers are away with ProGold Extreme.

The next stop on the quest is downtown Toronto for a few days and a cruise around Lake Ontario. More coming soon!
