Two fit Canadians in a Fit

Saturday I went to pick up my Tarmac from Sunshine Cycle Shop.  While I was there, I met Craig and Greg.  These were two guys from Canada who were camping out at Table Rock and spending the week riding their bikes.  I sure hope the weather improves for them!

I was putting some air in the tires when I heard someone say, “Who has the Honda Fit?”  My heart dropped.  I was just certain that someone had run into the little car in the parking lot.  Mike pointed them to me.

Craig approached me and said that there was something cool I might like to see.  It turns out he had built a platform for holding bikes in the back of his 2007 Fit.  What do you know? I had done the same thing.

We compared notes about the two cars and then went outside into the rain to check out his design.  It was slightly different than mine.  He used a frame made of several pieces of wood while I used a single large board as a platform.  Looking at the bikes in the back (surrounded by loads of gear) the result was the same.

I feel stupid that I didn’t get a picture of the guys to go along with this pic.  It is cool to think that they drove all the way from Canada to spend some time riding their bikes in our lovely hills.  Enjoy it, guys!
