My Brush with the Tour Divide 2013

Today JD had a good luck/going away party.  Its as close as I will get to doing the Tour Divide. Ha!

He flies to Banff Wednesday and will be acclimatizing for a couple of days before the start of the Tour.
JD is wearing the "Tour" t-shirt.
Cake Bike. I think it has a puncture.
Cycling to the party was a good opportunity to try my new eggbeater peddles for the first time. Its a few miles across town - flat all the way - but a beautiful day for some urban touring nonetheless. --- I am trying to embed my route but cannot seem to do it. So here's the link if you're interested.  Some Hamilton views along the way:

An art-deco house in Westdale. Wonder what its selling for?
Steel mills abound across the harbour.
And now home for barbeque salmon.  Doesn't get much better.


  1. Good luck to him. I can't imagine riding that race. Have you seen the movie Ride The Divide? Not bad.

  2. Yes, its one of the better "bicycle adventure" movies out there, I think.
