We're in Victoria, Canada for a couple of months. My mother, brother and girlfriend (and a member of the Courtland Brooks team) and two nephews are here. Rather than rent a car we decided to cycle and bus around town. I've bought a completely inappropriate bike for the occasion. An all carbon Canadian made Norco CRD, reduced from $2150 CDN to $1500. That's a hell of deal for an all-carbon bike. Its as fast as a bus, and I can usually meet Irena within a few minutes of the end of her cushy bus rides. I'm losing weight nicely because the extra exercise, and Irena is swimming at the local rec center while I look after our babies.
