7:30am, rise and shine. It's time to cook a champs brekkie
, pack up the brand new pants, gloves, helmet and team Jerseys
, grab the brand spankin' new team bike and hit the road towards Bromont
. The drive to Bromont is always a pleasant one, knowing what lies ahead. We get there fairly early which usually entitles us to a good parking spot. Nope, not today: the parking is jam-packed with riders flocking to the chairlift. What else should we have expected. After all, its only the second weekend us Quebecers can actually ride Bromont using the chair lifts. And for all you West coast guys who's lives revolve around shuttling, you just can't do much of it here. Access roads are scarce and when they do exist we'd be trespassing and most likely get caught (i.e. driving up Bromont).
