Interesting article of a Canadian besting his own world record in a human-powered machine.
I can just imagine him on a practice run between LaBroquerie and Richer concentrating on getting his line right, working on his spin and speed. Then hears Merle with his loud carbon wheel pulling even, with Curtis right behind him both of them thinking “finally a new MIT rider!”

Saturday August 29 is the first Eden East Road Ride leaving La Broquriere at 8 am. A few of the MIT riders are planning on riding from Steinbach leaving at 7 am from the tower gathering spot.
The 8 am ride for others is still on for those that want to ride that ride. Either way it looks to be a great day to ride a bike.
Enjoy the ride.
Another bike ride is announced for Southeastern Manitoba. This ride is for ROC which stands for Recreation Opportunities for Children. They started a number of years ago with the main focus to get kids involved with sport/recreation that can not do so for financial reasons.
The ride is a supported ride with stops at various locations. Cost to the riders is whatever $$’s you are willing to donate. The 100 km ride leaves from Source for Sports in Steinbach at 7 am travelling down hwy 12 south, touring communities of Sarto, Grunthal, Kleefeld, Randolph, Blumenort, Giroux, La Broquerie then ending up back in Steinbach.
