I ride bicycles 12 months of the year! I live in Waterloo Region and you can find me on the roads (paved and gravel), rail trails, dirt, snow and singletrack (and I’ve even been on the velodrome track at Milton and JoyRide indoor bike park). I blog about my rides and experiences on a bike (both close to home and in other locations) as well as my thoughts on cycling infrastructure and advocacy. I’ve done some racing, but I don’t consider myself a bike racer. I want to make this blog accessible for all levels of cycling, so I’ll blog about the events I enter, but you probably won’t find anything about “how to win” or “how to train”.
I’ve been an active member of the Waterloo Cycling Club (www.waterloocyclingclub.ca) for over a decade, and was a member of the WCC Trail Committee for five years. I’ve completed multiple 8 and 24 hour mountain bike relay races, 3-day stage races and many other cycling events, on my mountain, road, cyclocross and fat bikes, and I’ve dabbled in trail running and open-water swimming. I recently completed a four-day bikepacking trip of the Central Ontario Loop Trail (COLT).
I’m interested in how to get more people on bikes and what motivates people to ride. There are so many benefits to cycling, I believe that the more people ride bikes, the better the world is!
