I drove out to Canmore on Monday, not before having a film crew sent along with me. John and Ian are working for Ramsey Tripp on The Peloton Project film. Ramsey wanted some footage of me training, so he asked if I would mind if John and Ian rode along for that. I agreed. I rode about 25 miles (40km) in the mountains just West of Banff Alberta Canada. Nature’s Cathedral. Just gorgeous. I didn’t see any wildlife though. Wicked Windy! I had to pedal down hill because the wind would stop me on the hills. I did some switchbacks that reminded me of L’Alpe d’Huez in the French Alps. Didn’t seem as difficult this time. Maybe it was the cameras on me.
The following picture is looking into Bow Valley. I call it Heaven’s Gate.
This picture is of a Moon Set at Canmore,just East of Banff. This was taken from the deck at Bill and Lavina Gilliland’s house.
We start off tomorrow morning at 9:00am. Forecast for about 2″ of snow on the grassy surfaces. Chilly!

Also – get as many people together as you can and greet the Peloton Project riders as we enter Lewiston. Lewiston/Auburn are shutting down the Longley bridge to escort us across into the Peace Park just across the Bridge to the left in Lewiston at about 11:00 Friday morning, October 12th. Hope to see you there!
