On the way to Montreal!

Well, after some early morning airport fun, I'm finally at my gate getting ready to board the plane soon. I'll be arriving in beautiful Montreal at 4:25PM- hopefully giving me enough time to get to the hotel and then get my bike built quick enough to go for a short ride in the city to get reacquainted with Montreal. It's been two years since my last trip to Montreal, so I'm looking forward to seeing how much of it I can remember- the bike path along the St. Lawrence river is calling my name!

Sunday the show itself begins. Today is the demo in Bromont. Expo Cycle is a great show and I can't wait to see what it looks like now after two years of growth in the Canadian market. Thing is, I have to admit that I love bike industry tradeshows. Sincerely, I do. The standing and walking are both pretty painful for me right now- the knee, back and arm are really beat-up still, so I feel pretty blown apart by the end of the day now... but seeing all the new bikes and gear is mighty cool! Plus, this is the only time I get to see many of my friends and customers in the business. It ends up being a bit like a reunion... but with bikes.

Anyway... they just announced boarding for my flight... so I gotta go! Maybe I'll be back during my short layover in Denver. If not, you'll hear from me when I get to Montreal!

You've found the MONKEY ELECTRIC ALLEYCAT.

Skills test for this checkpoint -- find your nearest Masi dealer and leave a comment here with the dealer name and you city. Then go to the next checkpoint.

Important note: Masiguy is a popular blog -- some of you might get past this point before all checkpoints have been staffed, so wait around at the checkpoint.

Chequing in...

Since the Masi dealer locator could not find a dealer within 200 miles of here I Googled for Masi dealers in Canada and found Cambie Cycles in Vancouver BC. I hope it's the closest, but since I'm a little closer to Toronto (2240 km) than Vancouver (2280 km), it probably isn't.
