It's official. I bought my plane ticket to Calgary yesterday and booked a shuttle to Banff for June 10th. I'll be at the Douglas Fir Lodge just a couple of KM from the start/downtown. I was going to ride on Thursday after I get my bike put together for a test run. and go buy bear spray. eat. drink coffee. eat again. more coffee and more food. my volume of training has made ravenous. fortunately I lose my appetite after and during long rides. So i don't think the actual race will be an issue.
