Pimp My (Bicycle) Ride

- July 4th, 2011

Check out the bicycle I’ll be riding at this Sunday’s 2011 Edmonton ITU Triathlon World Cup

P1080885

Cute and petite. That’s in stark contrast to the beast that will be on it.

Ah, but the colour scheme works well for a member of Team Edmonton Sun — blinding orange with red handle bars (which appear rather pinkish in these photos I snapped moments ago).

As regular readers of this blog are well aware, I’m cycling for Team Sun (which includes swimmer and city editor Nicole Bergot, and runner and sports scribe Derek Van Diest).

We’re competing against a few other media outlets in the sprint category of the Edmonton triathlon set for July 10 at Hawrelak Park. The last I heard, Team 1260, CTV and Citytv were also putting together teams.

Anyhoo, my pimped-up bike is on loan to me from a St. Albert athlete with a really cool name — James Dean. I don’t know much else about James right now, other than he’s a really swell guy.

Thanks for letting me borrow your colourful wheels, good sir!
