Grain Elevators – will they survive?
Between Edmonton and Viking there are a number of sites that have grain elevators still standing by the highway, representing real rural areas in Alberta. I took pictures of the new mega grain elevators that are replacing old-fashioned wooden elevators from the past.

Flashbacks from the peloton 

By: Zdenko Kahlina

Marco Pantani (January 13, 1970 – February 14, 2004)
It’s a decade since Marco Pantani, one of cycling’s most flamboyant characters was found dead in a Rimini hotel room. Tour de France and Giro d’Italia winner Marco Pantani was found dead on Saturday evening, February 14, 2004 on the floor of his Le Rose hotel room on Italy’s Adriatic coast, surrounded by half-empty jars of antidepressants. I can’t believe it’s been already ten years since that day.

Leisure cycling

Cyclists shave their legs. Did you even know this?
I think this is an interesting question. Why cyclists shave their legs? I’ve had many people tell me I should be shaving my legs, but no one has actually given me a solid reason to do so, and everyone gives me a different reason. Why are they doing it? Aerodynamic benefits? For massage? Road rash? Tradition?
