New Velo Mag

The Velo Mag winter 2007 is on the stands.

It has the results and picture from the Defi Shawinigan from last September.

The Defi Shawinigan is a one-of-a-kind close-the-road-to-cars in the Parc de la Mauricie national park.

Cyclists ride a 105 km out and back on a road that is described officially as as smooth as a baby's skin.

I rode this circuit in June and I can confirm that this is one sweet piece of road, with not a even a crack in it.

The article noted that 80% of the participants were from outside the Mauricie region, and that 200 were turned away when the registration was full.

Reading some blogs and discussion boards it seemed that everyone had a good time.
It is good to see some autumn rides on the calendar, it's a great season for riding.

The photos showed lots of colorful maple trees. it looked like the best day for cycling.... ever!
