A Busy Summer [Fletcher Five]

Well, posts have been sparse. I know. The reason: too much time outside, not enough time on the computer. I’m not apologizing. We’ve had a lot of fun this summer on our bikes. The kids especially – not a day goes by that they don’t ask to go for a ride. Once a week, or maybe […] Related posts: More Summer Games Fun Summer Games – task 2 The Galaxie

    OH YEAH! Steamwhistle expands its network of bike repair stations

    Oh yeah!  BlogTO has picked up the BikingToronto post last week about this.  Steamwhistle deserves lots of toasts.

A physical barrier (curb, bollards, etc) is needed, or an cycling addition on the side of sidewalks.  Many […]

    OH YEAH! How I learned to love cycling my way to work

    I’ll be honest, and I hate to admit this, but I used to be that person that perpetually ran five minutes late—to everything. I’d do my best to be timely, but in many circumstances, I just couldn’t seem to make it to my commitments on time. A few years ago my brother became a bicycle […]
