A Letter to Halfwheelers

Dear Riding Buddy It’s early in the season and we’re all excited to get outside and ride, whether we’ve spent hours in the basement on the trainer or making fun of those that do. Either way, it’s easy to forget…

Day 5 - Saguaro

Day 5 – Saguaro

The eight mile loop at Saguaro National Park is one of my favourite things about Tucson – right up there with the ability to buy beer at the Circle K. I cannot say with any authority that the Saguaro loop…

When the Going Gets Tough, The Tough Ride Some Bikes

When the Going Gets Tough, The Tough Ride Some Bikes

Winnipeg winters are one of the few things in this world that actually deserve the word “epic”. Our badass motherfucker winters are what defines us Winnipeggers, and we embrace them like a nice frozen moose carcass. An unseasonably warm and…

Riding with Fatties

Riding with Fatties

This February I have committed to doing (or at least attempting to do) the 130-ish kilometre Actif Epica winter race from St. Malo to Winnipeg. Because if something has the word “Epic” in it, I’m in. Of course the challenge…
