What? Two this Week?

Well, much to my surprise, the weather and schedule cooperated and I was able to get out for another ride. This time, I decided to ride the “mean streets” of St. Catharines to see what it’s like to ride in rush hour traffic. Aside from not being able...

Oh yeah – the ride

First ride of the year. Just the “usual” starter ride – down Decew, up Beaverdams, Merrittville Hwy. up to Merritt Rd., then back down to Decew and back to the subdivision. Not a bad ride. Used gears. Didn’t die, but I sure as heck felt...

Thanks, Georges

Well, the whole cycling thing fizzled last year. What a surprise. Apparently life can get in the way of cycling (or anything) if you don’t make it a priority, which honestly, it’s not. Family. Work. Kendo. Those are my priorities, and there’s plenty...

So, it’s a New Post

Sometimes I see stuff online that should be tested out. This site’s a bit of a testing ground for me. I hope you’ll excuse the mess 😉 Just testing some more linking stuff here. Oh, and some more here.

Over 30

News flash: It’s incredibly easy to miss a day. Usually for seemingly good reasons. I last rode Saturday, which technically is last month. Sunday we were in transit. Monday was kendo at the JCCC and I didn’t want to have a hard workout in the morning. I...

Haist and Heavy Gears

In case you’re wondering what happened to Friday, no, it didn’t happen. I got home so late after Team Canada that I slept in. I was thinking of riding Friday evening, but too many errands got in the way. If I’d been less diligent about working, I...

Two Days Rest

Well, I was planning to ride two days on, one day off, but that hasn’t fully manifested yet. Yesterday I went to sleep late the night before so didn’t get up at 6 for the ride. This morning was rainy, and no, I’m not going to go for a training ride...

My Enemy is My Friend

I’m a bulky guy. I tend to catch the wind. Fortunately, that works both ways. Headwind going out wasn’t so bad. Tailwind coming home was lovely. Day 4: 21.15 km | 27.0 Avg | 48.8 Max | 46:52 mm:ss Just a simple ride along Decew to Beaverdams then up...
