For the past 6 months Dave has been out of action with an injured shoulder. And, “no” not due to something exciting such as being knocked off his bike, or crashing down a black ski run, but a simple fall on the ice on our deck resulted in tearing 3 rotator cuff tendons, and also partially ripping 2 of them off the bone! So after waiting a few months, here is the result:
Yes – Dave needed a couple of hours surgery to fix the problem!!
For most of Atlantic Canada, this was the view seen by passing motorists – my home-made Volkswagon advert!!

Click this link to hear Dave on CBC radio and scroll down to Tuesday, August 12, 2008. “Cycling Canada. We meet Dave Livingstone, a 66 year-old B.C. man, who is cycling across Canada to campaign for clean air and also raising money for the Lung Association. Livingstone (runs 7:48)”

A nice day along the St Lawrence – Riviere du Loup in the distance!
