The Official Canadian Temperature Conversion Chart

columnist Eoin KennyI expect over the next three or four months of riding across Canada I'll hit all four seasons, prossibly -- even probably -- more than once! But short of a blizzard, I'll have to keep going.

 

 


"Good thing we're not made of icing sugar," as my mother used to say when I whined about the rain. But then again, I think she was only on a motorcycle once adn never once when it was running in the rain or any other  weather!

So enjoy!
