We have had a gorgeous and unseasonably warm fall this year, which is probably unnatural and worrisome from a scientific perspective, but it sure is nice when you are an Alberta cyclist! I was able to ride almost every weekend, up until yesterday, November 14! I rode alone most of the time this year since I am getting pretty slow and can't go far but I loved these wonderful, solo Saturday rides out in the country east of the city. This year, I saw the beauty of the prairies in a new light, having taken it for granted for too long. The Alberta sky is magnificent and the landscape is stunning in its expansiveness. What a treat to be out on the road so late into the season!
