2013 Tour of Alberta

Evan and I headed downtown for the finish of Stage 5 of the Tour of Alberta (along with several thousand others). What an amazing event, and a fantastic finish. Hopefully this isn't just a one-off - it would be incredible to see it come back next year, with some mountain stages (the 1 mountain stage that had been planned was rerouted because of the June flooding in Alberta - hopefully next year's route would include a stage over Highwood Pass and maybe through the Rockies)....

Evan and I headed downtown for some hanging-out time this afternoon, and stumbled into the #occupyCalgary protest. I knew something was planned, but had half-forgotten that it was going down this weekend. We stopped for awhile, watching the protest.

There were a couple dozen police officers in full gear, but they were there mostly to make sure everyone was OK....
