“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” That’s the inscription on the main post office in New York City and it also works for the weekly pedal and pint rides in Revelstoke.
A group of five went out last Thursday for the 37th ride this year – a new record. They made it until early December before it had to pedal through snow. Then, on Thursday, Dec. 6, they tied the record, grinding around CPR Hill in the snow. Last Thursday, Dec. 13, they pedaled out again. According to organizer Brent Strand, they stayed out for more than two hours. “Mostly riding with a bit of pushing,” he said.
