Top rides

By: Zdenko Kahlina

Canadian winters are tough; it’s no wonder why every year ‘sun bird’ cyclists fly south to Arizona to escape the cold.
We might not live in igloos, but the stereotype of the long Canadian winter is pretty accurate for most cyclists north of the 49th parallel. During the winter months in Arizona it’s warm, it’s dry and it has some great road cycling routes. In fact, cycling is one of Arizona’s main draws, so there are many routes throughout the state that are marked specifically for this abundance of road riders.

Spectacular Sikh Temple on Manning Drive
This beautiful Mughal style Sikh temple is located in a relatively isolated corner of North East Edmonton, in an area called Horse Hills. I live in the neighborhood and ride my bike on the roads near the temple. You can also see this beautiful temple from the Manning drive en route to Fort Saskatchewan. It shows the architectural and cultural diversity of Edmonton.

Women’s Cycling: doing it for the love, and one dick too many
When Australia’s Tiffany Cromwell won the 2013 Omloop Het Nieuwsblad classic she had every right to be delighted – and one reason not to be. She’d just cemented her name on the European scene with what was arguably the biggest win to date in her career, trouncing Megan Gruanier of Rabobank in the sprint to seal a brilliant victory.

It’s time we learn to love our great capital city
I don’t know about you, but I’m getting tired of people having nothing good to say about the city that I’ve come to love, a city that has so much to offer and so much to see, from the farmer’s markets of downtown and Old Strathcona, to the endless pathways of the tranquil river valley. Edmonton, the rightful ‘City of Champions’ may need time to grow on you, but once it does, there’s no turning back.
