Visit with my touring cousin

After class tonight I popped up to my sister's to visit and to meet my cousin, Fred May, who is cycling across Canada on the Scout Vélotour 2007. I met him tonight for the first time since I was three, I believe... maybe two... details are somewhat foggy here on my part.

Fred is staying with my sister for a few days on his way east, having, most recently, made his way through the Crowsnest Pass. His plan? To arrive in St. John's by August 9.

Ambitious, yes?


It makes my cycle-tour to the University and home again four times a week look rather... er... slack.

Want to know more? Here's a link to the
Scout Vélotour 2007 site where you can check out a
regional map of the tour and read up on Fred's blog. A key entry I enjoyed was this one, Conquer Calgary Hills.

We have another family gathering planned for Friday in Bragg Creek, so I will keep you posted on what I learn about cross-country cycling.

Not an ounce of flab on that guy. I'd best get pedalling.

Nice family photo!

I have reconnected with some cousins of mine during visits over the past few years. It's good to catch up - and at least you're not telling "the same old stories"... too much time has passed for that to happen!
