we had to make a trip to the local hardware store. which happens to be a giant mega-chain big box store. I’d support the local guys, if there were any.

2010/01/03: Sunday challenge! Pick a focal length, any focal length, and stick with it the entire day. Post your best shot. (@rlepage) #ds49

(I slapped on the 10-20mm ultrawide angle lens for the day, stuck at 10mm)

hill training


I took a detour on the ride home today to add some big hills to start training for the Ride to Conquer Cancer. I wound up almost all the way down to the Bow River, at the Stoney Trail bridge, and climbed up almost to Crowchild Trail. The hill here is at the south entrance of Tuscany – it doesn’t look like much of a hill from here, but it’s a whopper. I’ll be trying to do this a few times a week, in addition to longer rides to build endurance.
