    Hi guys and gals,
    Here is a place for the people who call Alberta home. If anyone is interested in going for a cruise, meet up and shoot the shit, maybe we can collaborate here.
    I'm in Edmonton and would love to ride around with a few other XS's.
    If you're in the area and want to go for a scoot, let's do it!

    Ready for the news of today's weather?
    Are you sitting down?

    Chance of showers. But guess what tomorrow's going to be like?

    Chance of showers hahah.

    Careful of the pot hole under the lrt bridge on river valley. It took out a bike this week, end-over-end
  7. Not likely to happen. I moved to Vancouver Island a few years back. We have a few potholes here too, but the riding season is a bit longer. Also no buffalo out here. Went on a ride out to Elk Island Park once (back when I lived in Edmonton) had to swerve past a buffalo on the road. That was exciting.

    Do you ride an XS as well?

    If the weather gets better this weekend, we'll be out. I only got my 5 but ride with a 6er coworker.

    We do Jasper Ave/circle down town a few times, Whyte Ave, try to stay off the highway, and Friday nights usually end up at Old Strath Timmies at the antique mall.

    How do you find riding the hard tail here? What PSI do you have in the rear tire?

    You really have to watch for potholes, that's for sure. Standard tire pressure, two airbags under the seat.
