Back to Quebec for the 2015 GPCQM

It feel like I just left Quebec and here I am back in la belle province again! It’s been close to two months though, with lots happening in between. And yes, I know I still need to write up my Colorado trip report. And my MSA 25th. Now I can add my Shelter Valley blog …

Stretching A Little

I’ve said all along that my focus is cycling, that combining my passions of photography and cycling is central to the thought of what I’m interested in. Well… Then writing came along. Still with a cycling focus but a big step out of my comfort zone (Andrea is my comma splice cop! I need one …

Lake Champlain, Wilmington and 2015

Three themes evolved over the past week which revolved around another trip in my camper. This was a shorter one though as it was “only” 1,100 miles in total to upstate New York and back. The reason for going was a bike race that Andrea wanted to compete in. She’s been moving away from the …
