A Confluence

Confluence: a coming together of people or things; concourse. A number of unrelated events have conspired to make this all happen and I’m delighted with the way things have worked out. I retired from IBM and started into this next chapter. And now that the local cycling scene is in winter mode I have downtime. …

From First Race to Last Race

What an amazing experience this first part of my next chapter has been… from the first race in April that still had snow on the ground to a final race at Albion Hills that was a muddy cyclo-cross shortly before December began. The 2011 cycling season is now a wrap and I had a blast …

I finally gave in and upgraded

I’ve been struggling with my old iPhone for some time now and I’ve resisted going to a “4” for the better part of a year as it was clear a new model was coming. It’s not a “5” since Apple went the same route as they did with the 3G (adding an “S” edition) but …

So here’s a shot I captured with my iPhone, I had my loaded backpacked with all my camera and computer gear …

A next step in the next chapter

For the upcoming Grand Prix Cycliste events in Quebec and Montreal I will be doing some video work as well. Previously I’ve used my little point-and-shoot cameras for this as it was convenient (at the cost of quality). This year I expect to be doing more significant video coverage and so I’ve expanded my toolkit …

T = Today

I’m still packing, still wrapping my mind around leaving for Europe today, arriving Monday. Wim has already given me the “bad news” that my hours are filling without me having a say (of course I would say yes, Wim knows that). Still a little left in the bottle from last year, until later today! Today …

A weekend of Buses, Bikes and a birthday

What a great weekend! (warning, this is a long post).Well, to be fair it was a great long weekend since we set off a little after noon on Thursday with the camper packed and bikes on the back. The weather was not the best, although not as bad as the day before. There had been …
