Well… I did it. I said yes to another IT contract. When I wrapped up the last one back in March I mentioned that I didn’t have any fixed plan but would consider coming back in the fall. One of the people I was working with reached out to see if I was interested, we …

Moab Video(s) Part 3 – Mag 7 and Slickrock

I had so much fun stuff from these two amazing rides that I couldn’t edit it all down to 10 minutes. So… I made a 10 minute video of each. If you only watch one of the 4 videos from Moab then I’d pick Slickrock. Amazing place, amazing riding, and I’m amazed that I rode …

Moab Trilogy Book 3: The Trip Back to Toronto

 When I was trying to decide how to write this final book of the trilogy, I started by thinking that it would be the least interesting to readers. It’s certainly just as full of adventure as the previous two books, in different ways though. So I’ll just keep writing and you can make of it …

Moab Book 2: Being There

I feel like like I skipped over so many things along the way to summarizing the first part of the trip… how the weather was (soooo much better than it had been when I left TO), what it felt like to be on the road (and on the road alone)… I am really getting to …

Moab Book 1: Getting There

It began with the forging of the Big Rings… three were given to the mountain bikers. (sorry, I couldn’t resist some LOTR-esque start once I decided to make this a 3 part tale). This trip was certainly an adventure, nothing like the trip Frodo went on though as I didn’t see a single dragon, troll …
