Calgary/Powderface/Spray Lakes/Calgary loop

Here are some pictures for you guys to waste a little more of the workday...

I got the bike about a month and a half ago and have tried to ride it as much as possible (allowed...). So far I haven't had the time to post a picture earlier than now but better late than never. I managed to take a day for myself and ride out to Kananaskis from Calgary last week. The loop took me just over 5 hours including lunch and photo stops. The roads were in fantastic shape and for those of you with more than 2500km under your belt I am sure you could shave some time off from mine. My gravel skills are quickly improving and I have yet to decide which I like better - twisty dirt or twisty pavement. I got a little wet heading into Canmore but the day started and ended in the sun. I couldn't ask for more...
