ABES Blizzard Fest

by on March 17, 2013

When the race director calls neither snow, nor winter storm warning will stop the racers from the RM of Rhineland from answering that call.  Of course, it helps to get to HQ on time, or else you’ll ride around Altona for a good half hour searching for your club mates–like this guy.  He missed the knock-down competition, and the sweet sight of 22 riders heading down Railway Street toward the park.

seeking other cyclists  I hear his wife made him late, but you hear a lot of rumours when ABES & Athena get together.

For instance, I heard the festivities would include a one-hour relay race.

Whoops–turns out that wasn’t a rumour–Johnny actually expected us to pair-up so that each member of the pair could complete an exhilarating lap of the park. Each lap would include the joy of carrying your bike uphill, and slogging through impassable sections of the bike path before risking death on the slippery surface of the frozen pond.

Naturally, I took a pass, but many others paired-up and made the rounds. Very impressive event, and a wonderful afternoon of riding. Thanks to Johnny and his merry men for organizing the Bike Fest; hats off to all who provided food & drink and three cheers to Back Alley Cycle for providing prizes. Next year in Cancun?

    Good times! And thanks Sandra for the very prompt E-payment!

    On yet another note, I purchased a very sweet pair of Giro Sica women’s MTN bike shoes online. They arrived today to much fanfare. Unfortunately the Euro sizing is throwing us for a bit of a loop. Too small for Cindy. :( So, anyone interested in a pair of super nice shoes?! They’re size 39.5 EU or 7.75 US women’s. These shoes are in the Charcoal/Silver color. I’m selling them for $145 (which is what I paid for shoes, shipping, taxes and duties)

    Here’s a link to them on the Alter Ego store site (Winnipeg).

    Here’s a link to them on (USA)

    So if anyone’s interested let me know ASAP. I can return them so it’s no big deal.
