The Tour de France just concluded, with a better-than-expected showing for Team Garmin Chipotle and in particular Christian Vande Velde (5th overall). Christian happens to be originally from Lemont, IL, which is a suburb of Chicago along the I&M canal corridor.

This blog weighs in on topics such as long-distance skating, the Illinois canals, cycling, and a variety of related (and occasionally not-so-related) topics. I'd like to correspond with others interested in skating the Hennepin and I&M canals.
