It's Melting! The snow is Melting!

It's Melting! The snow is Melting!
The week started off cold, but I didn't care. My snow tires were off!!! Much much faster now. As the week went by my daily speed on my commute really picked up. Thursday night was the first night where it didn't go below freezing. And Saturday it went up to +17C. Everyone is happy. Maybe soon I can post a picture without snow in it. My wife said no to putting the snow shovels away. I hope she is wrong.
           This blog is a day later than usual. I worked  3 days of double shifts so I'm late with every thing this week. .         
 I added a music system to the Quest. I used a Mp3 player, an amp with it's own battery mounted under the seat in a plastic container. The design for it came from Yellowmobile so I am linking to his blog and giving him all the credit (or Blame). My female Husky doesn't like it! Too loud I think. I will use out in the country or when I'm alone on a Brevet somewhere. By the way Stuart if you are reading this, Check out the update page on Ray posted my Quest picture on top of your Stada. Good looking windmill you have
          On Saturday I rode out to Birds Hill Park to be a corner Marshall for a road race. Before the race I got to do a couple of fast laps around the race course while the racers were warming up. I sure had fun passing these racers. I could not believe the difference in speed especially in the rolling sections. This was their first race of the year so they should get faster. But I should too. Round trip for the day was 130 km and the legs felt great. I should be in good shape for our first 200 km Brevet next Saturday. For some reason Blogger won't let me upload any pictures so I'll put on next weeks blog.
Until then: Greeting from the center of Canada... 


  1. Hi Kevin. I thought we had snow and cold for a long time (and we did). Enjoy the rides in these lovely temperatures on those long days.

  2. Thanks Wilco,
    I am really looking forward to my first 200 km Brevet this Saturday. It will be first one in the Quest. It should be a fun ride.

  3. Hey Kevin,

    I'm glad you're on the road now and moving fast! If your husky doesn't like your music, you should just leave her home next time. Very best of luck on your Brevet this weekend! Can't wait to hear how it goes.
