7th time lucky?

Whether it’s luck or skill Lance certainly has a lot on the line as he prepares to go for the 7th straight win in the Tour de France. With announcing his retirement after this years Tour, he’s planning on going out at the top of his game. I’ll certainly be pulling for him to win as it would be an incredible achievement. Six wins are already incredible, but I think a loss on number seven would cause most people only to remember the loss and not the fantastic record that’s already achieved. We tend to have such short memories and a focus for the negative. No matter what happens it will be one exciting Tour

Prairie Mountain

I went biking yesterday and had a great ride of about 32km. With the river levels up most of the local trails in the city are under water and here in Winnipeg it’s pretty flat on the roads. However, with a 40+ kph: wind you can really get a workout when you’re riding into it! This is something I refer to as a “Prairie Mountain”. It may be flat, but a long hall into a stiff headwind can seem just as hard as climbing a mountain trail.

It was also a good day for flying a kite. Some people even tried flying a kite while riding a bike. Kiteboarding becomes Kitebiking!

Life is a Beach

Scott took this picture last year on our dock at Lake of the Woods. It really captures the way I feel about the lake and lake life. Nothing is a problem at the lake, and I’m looking forward to getting back there soon. Actually, most days I’d rather be at the lake. Posted by Hello


Just investigating the w.bloggar tool to see what sort of thinks it can do. Basically, because I’m a WYSIWYG kind of guy and reluctant to get down into the HTML code etc. This stuff needs to be easy to do. Life has enough challenges without remembering stuff you don’t really need to know. You know, simple things like a spell checker are nice to have, especially for us 6 finger typers.
