Cycling Ladies September 15, 2009

I was on a recuperation ride from our 200 km Cyclebetes event last Saturday (pictures here) and came across a young lady cycling from Boston to Chicago, via the Maritimes. Priscilla has finished her tour of Nova Scotia and PEI and is on her way West. Her friend is keeping a blog about Priscilla’s adventures called Amazing Priscilla goes on a very long bike ride. Priscilla also had a very cool rear view mirror, called the Beer View Mirror, made from a spoke and a bottle cap.

Here she is near Dorchester:


Meanwhile, Sydney and Diane continue the final leg of Sydney’s cross Canada trip (near Oromocto last night):

Sunday Morning Bike Rides April 9, 2009

The Sunday morning road bike gang is back at it this year. Rides start at Sackville’s Bridge Street Café at 10:00 AM Sunday mornings. Come early and get a jolt of espresso before hitting the road.

These are social rides, not races, and are open to anyone with a road bike. We usually do between 30 and 50 km and perhaps longer as the season progresses. The pace is decided by whomever shows up, but dropping riders off-the-back is a social faux pas.


Biker returns to Sackville October 13, 2008

Dan Aurell flew to Vancouver this Summer and has been working his way back to Sackville by bike. His journey has taken him across the US and Canada and Dan has shared some of his experiences on his blog, Dan’s Adventures.

A number of local cyclists, including his dad, met up with Dan to join him for his final 25 km into Sackville, where he was met by a bunch of his friends at the Bridge Street Cafe.
