Okay so maybe this post should be titled just "Trains".... with the odd peddle bike thrown in for good measure!
Last week, I bought myself a shiny new bicycle. Admittedly, I was due - my previous bike had rolled many, many miles, and seeing as how I purchased it in mid-1998, it truly had earned a relic status. And since I do quite like peddling, and since I have a place in the mountains, I figured it was time to take the plunge and get myself an actual mountain bike!

bikes are in my living room.... LOL!
My new set of wheels is a Rocky Mountain Soul 29 - red, of course - and so far I love it! On Saturday, we rode the Legacy Trail from Banff to Canmore and back. Approximately 53km of loveliness is what it was!
|We were the 245th and 246th people to use the trail on Saturday!|
|Lunch and beers before the peddle home....|
|Great way to spend an afternoon!|
|We hung out in the 'bar car' and enjoyed|
some fantastic entertainment!
|The train was "robbed"! All the loot collected went to|
the Alberta Children's Hospital however - nice!
