Photos from BC hikes posted

My sweetie and I were recently in BC, visiting friends and doing a little hiking. BC's wilderness is quite mindblowing. I have posted some photos I took. The gallery app is new and still sports its default appearance.

Kiosk trip log posted

I have posted my trip log for a trip I took with Irene a week or so ago. We did a five day loop around the north end of Algonquin Park, starting at the Kiosk access point.

Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour: the Schwinn sadly misunderstood

A bike journey where the path is marked doesn't lend itself to a typical trip narrative. Or rather the sort of narrative it lends itself to would go sort of like this: I got on the bike in Ottawa. I started pedalling. I turned when they said turn. When I got to Kingston, I stopped. The next day, I got on the bike and came back.

Champlain Lookout, 54km

Wearing my new shoes on my new pedals. Will need to do some adjusting. I was so keen on having rigid carbon soles, I thought I'd tighten them as much as I could (all that extra efficiency). On the morning after, I think I can feel my feet again.

Metcalfe 97km

At first, I was tempted to bike around the block a few times to make this an even hundred. That, of course, was on the way out.
