The last three weeks have been the greatest for Canadian cycle sport. Ryder’s triumph in the Giro d’Italia should inspire every Canadian to celebrate the win by riding to work each day this week. All MIVA members can set an example by riding to their workplaces and letting everyone else there know how cycling has improved their fitness and general appreciation for life. Your editor is old and decrepit but he is going to ride to all his appointments this week and even do the shopping by bike. Unlike many of the club members, he doesn’t possess panniers or a trailer, so don’t be surprised if you read that he has caught a shopping
bag or two in the front wheel and is lying battered and bloody on the way home from the Superstore!
Seriously, All our readers should make a real effort this week to celebrate Ryder’s achievement and to set a good example for others.
