Bib 183, riding the Cruise

I just got my confirmation for the Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour today – in the email. Bravo, Ottawa Bicycle Club. You’ve made it to the age of email. As snarky as that sounded, I would appreciate the efforts the club staff and volunteers make if they sent their confirmations on hand-inscribed vellum or stone tablets. It’s an amazing event and I’m glad to be doing it again this year.

This made me almost as happy as Dalton McGuinty agreeing to the NDP’s wealth tax. As timid and insufficient as it is, it’s the first time in 20 years that the tax system has gotten more progressive.
