Absolutely nothing beats the thrill of a downhill ride on a road bike. This particular short, but steep, hill is located in Lumsden, Saskatchewan. The cyclist in yellow is a young lad, former reservist with the Canadian Armed Forces, and a long-distance cyclist who is involved with the Prairie Randonneurs. The rig he is on is a touring bike loaded with all the bell and whistles suitable for riding organized Brevets ranging from 200km to 1200km in distance. Just the thought of riding a 1000+ kilometre Brevet makes my derrière sore. Our 70+ kilometre march of death ride yesterday would seem like a short spin to the local cafe for him.
