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!
