Montreal's Salon du Velo 2010 Feb 19-21




Forget the car show this weekend, we're waiting for the upcoming Salon du Velo in February.

We most enjoy visiting the cyclotourism-destination booths, and there are lots to choose from since quebec is a big place with lots of really great cycling destinations.

In the annoyance-resolution department, we are looking forward to interrogating Velo Quebec about why their on-line Montreal-region bike map dates from 2008 (i.e. produced in 2007) and therefore is way out of date. The velo-quebec staffer said last year that we'd see a new map online in May 2009, but we have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting. We've waited long enough and it is time for Velo Quebec to remember that they exist to serve the public, not to just milk us for guberment subsidy coinage. (End of rant)

See you there!

Don't forget to visit the Guru Cycles booth!

We're showing the brand new Guru Photon. The world's lightest production road bike - 54 cm frameset is only 747 grams!

Might be less expensive to visit the car show....

The Guru Photon sounds cool, but it will probably be less expensive to visit the car show.
