The trail in the park is bookended by a multi-use trail in Tofino along with another multi-use trail in Ucluelet, providing an…

Th Handsome Himiway Cruiser Electric Fat Bike

Himiway Electric Bike: All Terrain Model Review

A large bike box containing the 72-pound Himiway all terrain electric cruiser bike showed up on my doorstep recently. It had taken three weeks to make it to Calgary from California via UPS ground, but it arrived in one piece with all bits inside carefully wrapped up - and everything in its place. Important parts like derailleurs were taped with protective layers. And there was a box holding all the accessories which made it way…

What Much Of The Shoreline Looks Like- It's Either This Or Beach

Cycling the Magdalen Islands in Quebec

Plunked down in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, they take up a mere 206 square km (80 square mi), so there’s a good chance you’ve never heard of them. Although French is the first language for most of the…

Lots has been written about the Prague to Vienna bike ride, especially with so many outdoor-adventure companies offering the tour. But the lesser known parts of the Czech Republic like the South Bohemian region are not nearly so well represented online.  Our group of cyclists, made up of five young males and…

A week long trip cycling through Jordan is a fun way to see this safe and peace-loving country, often referred to as the Switzerland of the Middle East. While it's surrounded by noisy neighbours including Iraq, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Israel and the West Bank, don't let that deter you from visiting. I'm serious.
