A bit of History

By | March 29, 2011

We’re under constant renovation here, and when dear hubby removed a bit of baseboard in what used to be the kitchen, he uncovered a stash of lost mail. I had to laugh out loud – with licensing being a bit of a hot topic right now. So, there you go. In 1956 in Etobicoke, you […]

I made it through the winter!

By | March 14, 2011

Wow, I can’t believe it’s March already. I never thought I would make it! It’s been a year, ONE WHOLE YEAR, since I sold my car. Can I get a pat on the back please? I’m not going to lie, I still make use of the truck sometimes, but only on weekends, and only about […]

Appropriate Dress

By | October 15, 2010

It’s getting chilly out there. And I don’t have anything to wear. Well, that’s not strictly true. Like any good Canuck I have my share of gloves and coats and earwarmers. Though it seems that none of them are terribly appropriate for biking. This seems to be an ongoing problem for me. Most of the […]

A Busy Summer

By | September 24, 2010

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 […]

By | August 27, 2010

This was just too cool not to share. The other community I belong to on the internet is called Craftster – and I saw this pop up yesterday. It’s a bike, made entirely from fabric. I’ll let the original post do the talking – click on over and have a look. You need to be […]

Test Ride

By | August 4, 2010

I had the opportunity to test out a Nihola this morning – and I wanted to jot down my thoughts while they are still fresh. Comfort: low top tube makes for easy mounting, comfortable saddle Stability: this bike has got the long john beat hands down for stability – with three wheels it has to, […]

Bixi!

By | July 30, 2010

Went downtown today – the market is full of fresh Ontario produce and I wanted to load up for the long weekend (mmmm peaches). I got a pleasant surprise while walking along Front Street: Excuse the terrible cell phone picture – but surely you recognize those bikes? Didn’t have time to stop and chat, so […]

A sunny day ride

By | May 4, 2010

How I love spring. My sister came by and suggested a ride, so we loaded up the kids and set out. I thought it would be fair if she took at least one of the kids – so I hooked her up with the trailer, and Mr T and Miss K both jumped in. We […]

Bike lanes – just for bikes?

By | April 13, 2010

Snapped from the corner of my street this afternoon. I’ve seen joggers using the bike lane too. Them, I object to; skateboarders, I’m not sure about.
