Allez, vite!


Simone and I generally take a three-day bike trip through some transit-accessible part of Southern Ontario in early July. It’s also Tour de France time, of course: as such, I was not entirely surprised to see these road markings on a particularly nasty climb on Cottingham Road between Omemee and Peterborough. Thankfully, there were no elderly men dressed as devils (or out-of shape younger men in their swimming trunks, yelling and firing flares) running alongside us as we climbed a fairly modest hill on a hot day.
