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.
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.
