Elvis is Alive!

Well, the ProGold tour headed further north into the land of lakes in Canada this past week. One of my interesting stops was in Collingwood, Canada at the Elvis festival which has been going on for the last 17 years and is the largest of its kind in the world. Then it was off to the Three Rock Trail…60KM or 45 Miles of riding outside of Collingwood, where I was treated to or harassed by (it depends on how you look at it) some quality company. I got to ride with the current 40+ Cross County Champion, Alan Kriss; the current 40+ Marathon Champion, Terry Van DenHeuvel; and the current 24 Canadian Champion, Ken Merit. WOW…nothing like letting them try the ProGold Xtreme Lube and learning firsthand their experiences. Their thoughts were all positive except for one remark: “Come on, Bruce, why are we waiting so long for you?” Just sayin’!

Then Terry and I headed up to Buckwallow Trails in Muskoka, Canada. A new ProGold sponsorship was set up with Buckwallow Trails and we rode some great trails. During the meeting with Michael of Buckwallow Trails, we both shared our fondness for Spiderman and talked about trails throughout the states and the great northern country of Canada, EH! This is a very pretty area of the country and some ‘sick’ riding to boot! Pictures will follow later of The Buckwallow/ProGold Sponsorship. As the day finished up, I headed for a little blues in Toronto for the night.

As I tour this great country to the north, I am amazed at the way Canada sets up cycling paths and mountain biking venues throughout this land. Congratulations to the red maple leaf folks of this spectacular region of the world. I think it is awesome, but I am just not sure about the riding year-round. Maybe they can use the ProGold BikeWash/Degreaser to help rinse that snow and salt off of their bikes!

Keep checking back for more updates and please share the ProGold LOVE to all throughout the world!!!
