2013 Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour is nearly upon us again. This year it falls on June 8th and 9th.
Once again over 2000 riders will scream down the roads from Ottawa to Kingston, spend Saturday night, and then slowly peddle their way back home to Ottawa on Sunday.
My local club will be providing operators to look after six radio check points on both Saturday and Sunday. The Frontenac Club looks after the Perth Road Village to Queen's University sector.
This is the 30th straight year that amateur radio has looked after the communications for this event, something of a record I think.
So far the long range weather forecast isn't looking too good, but we have a week to go yet, and you all know how bad the weather guys are at forecasting.
