    Hi,

    This year I joined a group of cyclists from CANCERVIVE to ride from Calgary, Alberta to Austin, Texas to raise money and awareness for the fight against cancer. I am a relatively new rider and I am looking to improve my riding. I am currently riding with a group on Sundays for longer rides and riding in the river valley throughout the week. Can you give me more details on the course? Is it specific to riding in traffic and what is the exam for?

    Thanks,
    Tonya Skanes
