Bikes,Beers,and the Boys

So last weekend was our Annual “Guys Trip”. A standing tradition that me and a few friends have been keeping alive for a number of years now. It usually takes the form of some physical discipline and camping. Not always the same folks make it out, and not always the same activities year after year….

Gracias Golden Ears Fondo

So last Saturday, my mate Seb and I go rolling in to Peace park at the southern tip of Coast Meridian road on the banks of the the Pitt River. We were there to attend the inaugural Golden Ears Fondo. Race 1 in a triple crown race series. The other 2 being The Cowichan Crusher…

Up next..Gravel Fondo?

So you know when you sign up for a race on a whim. You know you really don’t have any expectations on the outcome, or even what you might be getting yourself into. That would be me with the current race on my plate. The Golden Ears Gravel Fondo. It is it’s inaugural race and…

New Inspirations

So addimittedly I have been pretty non-existent lately though not completely off the radar. I have kept myself busy with an early April Trail race under my belt for the year and am switching gears into training for my upcoming 100+km Golden Ears Fondo (cycling) in just over a month. But… Truth be told, my…

Training season has started

Well I feel it’s officially time. Training season has started. A few races lined up so far. Both running and cycling. I managed to get out for a 80km ride yesterday with my brother which was good. We don’t often have too much time these days to put in a long ride together. The bike…

Polarizing tides of Solo Travel

I woke up yesterday morning with this memory from my solo cycling trip in the summer of 2016. Going from Calgary to Vancouver. I was outside of a gas station on the outskirts of Kamloops BC. It was hot. That muggy kind of hot you can’t shake even in the shade of a tree. I…

Rear View Mirror 2016

Its 1130am on the last day of the year. I have spent much of the last month grinding it out at work and fighting off a bit of a cold. Classic way to end the year. As it is for most folks, I too, find myself in reflection of the last 12 months. It has…

Slideshow -Calgary to Richmond Cycle Tour

Hey Folks. I finally had a chance to sit down and out together a bit of a slide show of my trip from this past summer cycle touring from Calgary Alberta to Richmond BC. Here is a link to it on my you tube page. Cheers.  

Sunshine Coast Cycling

Hey folks. Last summer I cycled an amazing route along the Sunshine Coast. Rolling hills, some big climbs and some cold beers. I was asked recently if I could put together an article for folks looking to go cycle touring in that region. If you ever venture out this way it is a fantastic ride. Check out…

Big trips and the future.

And with that summer looks like it is getting ready to pack it in. The last few months have been a whirlwind for me. Some big trips, some small ones. Weddings and BBQ’s. Leading into fall feels a bit different this year. With our family getting a little bigger in the upcoming year, I am excited at the whole…
