I’ll start by saying this trip was one of the wetter editions of our Autumn In Vermont expeditions. We’ve had cold before. We’ve had some rain too. Never this much of both though. The initial rain we had at Millstone cleared up and delivered some delightful sun and colours for our two days of riding […]
I’m told we’re creatures of habit and I’m ok with that. Going to Vermont to enjoy the Autumn colours and some mountain biking for Canadian Thanksgiving is a habit I like and will happily be that creature for years to come. Andrea and I have been doing this longer than I’ve been keeping this blog. […]
I’m back home in Toronto, reflecting on how quickly the week flew by. I’m happy to report that Babe behaved perfectly after the fix for the starter wire, she purred all the way throughout the rest of the trip including the 12 hours driving back on Saturday. I’m glad we pushed all the way home […]

The latest iOS update doesn’t seem to work well with some aspects of Photosynth (classic Apple vs Microsoft struggle?) so I’ve had to upload these images in a round-about way. I hope you like them, and I hope it was worth the extra effort to get around the software incompatibilities!
For a second time Andrea and I have wrapped our cycling season up with a trip to the Kingdom Trails in Vermont. That, coupled with a trip to Pisgah to kickstart the season for a second time… I think it was a great way to open and close the season. Not that we didn’t ride […]
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 […]
