Biking on the F1 Track

I've said it before and I'll say it again - I live in a cool city.

Yesterday Marc and I went for a kick-ass bike ride. From my place, we cut across Nuns' Island, went over the Ice Bridge and along the causeway to Parc Jean Drapeau. The cool part about biking there (you can also drive your car over) is that you can bike, walk, rollerblade or drive around Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve. The Grand Prix went down about a month ago now and they are in the process of putting up / taking down the grand-stands. It was really "impressionante" to know that I, yes, little old me, could and was actually riding her bike around the same track as those famous F1 drivers.

It was a beautiful day; sunny, breezy, dry. We did two laps on the track, continued our bike ride over the Casino bridge, then headed back home along the Canal bike path. I figure we must have biked about 30k altogether. Not bad for a Sunday morning.

Kick-ass is right!!! My butt is feeling it today.

Hee hee! Mine's fine. (She says, snickering because her butt is in better shape than her brother's!)

I'll take that butt challenge. My is pretty firm.

We'll have to ride the track while we're around for vacation or when I'm there for training.
