Sunday Nov 8 #


And... that's a wrap. This is the final evening of the 9-day Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival, which was virtual this year. Although it's not the same as going to Banff, it wasn't all bad. It was great to have full control over which films I watched and when. It's the first year I've seen all the award winning films. I've neglected other tasks over the past week but it's been like a nice mini-vacation. :)

Trekking (Trail) 2:04:37 [1] 9.52 km (13:06 / km) +251m 11:34 / km
shoes: Salomon XA Pro Grey

In lieu of the traditional multisport Fall 50 and potluck dinner, a small group of us celebrated Coach LD's birthday with a distanced hike around Glen Haffy Conservation Area. It was another perfect summer day in November, enhanced by homemade treats and good conversation. Fun!

Here's the birthday girl and her boy.

Our snack break (and first attempt at our album cover).

Who would have thought two guys in their 70s could maintain an election that long?

Congratulations to our friends across the border.

Mountain Biking (Single Track) 2:19:57 [3] 27.07 km (11.6 kph) +466m

It's another beautiful - albeit weird - summer day in November, 20C and sunny. 'Bent and I met Coach LD and Goose for a fun, chatty single track ride around the northern half of Albion Hills. My legs were tired after yesterday so the hills felt like work but it was great to be out.

We had to steer clear of a movie shoot. They probably didn't expect crowds of people to be hiking and biking in the park at this time of year.

'Bent's phone rang. His Mom was calling to tell him Biden had just won. Although we've been expecting this news at some point, I felt like I could finally exhale after 4 years. YaHOOOO!!!!

We rode home the long way via the Caledon Trailway, Palgrave village and Palgrave Forest after stopping for a catch-up with Kendra on Duffy's Lane. We're looking forward to ski season but it was pretty darned nice to have one more day of biking in perfect conditions.

Mountain Biking (Single Track) 1:30:20 [3] 18.09 km (12.0 kph) +341m

It was a gorgeous, summery day after a big snowstorm a few days ago. If you don't like Canadian weather, just wait a day or two. Same with U.S. elections.

I rode single track in Palgrave East and the trails are in perfect condition. People have been out tidying them up with leaf blowers and rakes - seriously! I met hikers, dog walkers, bikers and equestrians and everyone was in a great mood in the sunshine. The forecast for the next two days looks similar so the trails will probably be packed this weekend. Enjoy, everybody!

Went through lots of popcorn tonight. Good thing I have more because it's not over yet.
