November Sideroads, Concessions and Trails

Since I mentioned this ride as a source of finding the GPS documentary I posted earlier, I thought I should do justice to the ride too. A group of almost 20 people showed up in Erin at Jouko and Robin’s place, greeted by freshly baked cookies and espresso shots before the 11AM start. Almost all …

Say hello to Stumpy

Ever since Andrea and I started mountain biking in places that actually had mountains (like Pisgah or the Kingdom Trails) I’ve felt like my old Grey Gary (a Gary Fisher HiFi Plus) wasn’t the right bike for the big descents and trails. It’s been a great bike to me, never let me down including the …

A film festival submission; another first

Many (over 30?) years ago I submitted a photo to an exhibit and contest in Guelph Ontario… they were reluctant to accept it as it wasn’t framed. In the end they did. And they awarded it first place… with the proceeds I framed it (there were only two prints made from this image and I …

Finished Touches

About a month ago I posted an entry with a shot of the first Bamboo Bike Studio Toronto Frame being built. Since then, the video I put together has gone live (link below) and three custom ‘boo frames were displayed and put up for sale today. All very exciting stuff. I’m very proud of Steff’s …

Oddly Enough

This just in: Paris cleans lipstick off Oscar Wilde grave Andrea came across this piece and it reminded me of the time we rode there on Velibs (the Paris city bikes) in 2010. Another great excuse to highlight a few photos I took there including the lipstick-covered Wilde monument. That was our “volcano” trip and …

An October Weekend in Vermont

With the Canadian Thanksgiving making it a long weekend, only one local cyclocross race on, a weather forecast that was exceptional, Andrea and I took the weekend off. We had talked about doing a trip to Vermont when we were at Watkins Glen a few weeks ago and the sun, moon and stars all lined …

Care to write the caption for this photo?

As I was leaving the press center I happened upon one of those moments photographers love. No-one else around taking photos, lots of happy people at the end of a long day, everyone relaxed. So here’s a shot I captured with my iPhone, I had my loaded backpacked with all my camera and computer gear …

What wonderful images Quebec City provides!

So, I wonder… where to start! I have posted a few shots of the city, totally unrelated to the race. I have a whole bunch of shots that I doubt will ever be posted anywhere unless I put them up… so, I hope that has you wondering, and that the shots are indeed interesting. Each …

The Big Tour, continued (and concluded)

[Warning: long entry!] Here’s the final trip report from France and le Tour… not sure why it’s taken me so long to wrap it up, blame it on “retirement”. I left off in the Pyrenees, with the Belgians heading north while Andrea and I stayed put; trip 3 was really nice with no places we …
