Fellowship Ride

Fellowship Ride

My friends Dan and Haruko have been staying with us for months now due to the Covid situation in China. They’d sold almost all their worldly belongings before moving abroad but Dan had a bike stashed at his brother’s house in Gananoque, along with the few...
Fellowship Ride

Port Colborne and Back

It looks like I missed some time, but actually there was a tandem ride that snuck in there somewhere. Andrea and I went to visit Dave and Vanessa and did some riding in their area on the local rail trails. Great, shady trails so Andrea wasn’t in the sun very...
Sharing Niagara with Visitors

Sharing Niagara with Visitors

I was chatting with my friend Dave and said that I’d been getting on the bike more. He whimsically suggested we go for a ride. Of course, I said “Yeah, we should”. That set the wheels in motion for a visit from Dave and his wife Vanessa. They brought...

Around the Block

Today’s sojourn was a short jaunt by recent standards. Down Merrittville / Glenridge to Glendale, across to Niagara College, up Taylor Rd. to Hwy 20, Kottmeier to Beaverdams to Decew and home. Just a quick trip with enough hills to keep me busy. Going down the...

NOTL and Back Again

As the title suggests, I went to Niagara-on-the-Lake and came back. Create Routes or Search for a route from millions at MapMyRide It was a nice day for it though. A little warm, but a nice breeze. I had a tailwind all the way to NOTL. Tailwinds are funny things. You...

The First 50 of the Year

Well, it’s in the books. The first 50 km+ ride of the year. It wasn’t + by much – just 110m, but it qualifies 🙂 Rode Decew to 81 and followed it to Victoria. Rode up Victoria to Hwy 20, then back to Merritville Hwy and home on Beaverdams. A few...

Ships, Hills, and Bugs

I thought I’d try a new route this evening. I started getting ready around 7:45 which in hindsight was probably a little late. Anyway, it was what it was. Create Routes or Search for a route from millions at MapMyRide It was a good idea, but perhaps, in...

WTF is Wrong with Me?

Remember last year when I said I wanted to do something “out there” for my 50th birthday? I wound up doing 50 3-minute Kendo matches. That was awesome. What can I do this year? Kendo’s probably out due to Covid-19 precautions, so here’s my idea...

A New Hope?

After getting started with riding in April, May and June were pretty quiet. Not sure why, but they sure were. I’ve done three rides in the past little while. Today, yesterday, and some time last week, I think. It’s already foggy in my memory. While I...

Another Ride, a New Route

After last week’s ride I couldn’t believe how sore I was. Don’t tell me. I know. I’m getting old 😉 The worst part of course is getting the tush used to the bike seat. I bought a new saddle last year that’s supposed to be more ergonomic....
