Hop, Skip and a Jump over the Atlantic to the United Kingdom

I recently made a trip down to the UK with work in order to train the staff at the Evan’s Cycles chain of bike stores on the 2014 Norco product. Through this trip I had the opportunity to visit Manchester and Gravesend before heading to Wales for a second event. At this second event I met a number of cyclists that offered an amazing experience. The weekend spent in Wales was all about riding for the attendees and had some opportunity for grabbing a few riding shots. These shots all come from the riding area outside of Goytre, Wales.

Here are the photos!

You Better Belize It! (Belize excuse the pun…)

0

Recently, Kelly and I made our annual fall vacation and this year we chose Belize as our destination. Having traveled to a few countries in the area (Mexico, Dominican and Costa Rica) it was exciting to see something that was geographically close yet environmentally quite different. Belize for the most part is actually situated below sea level. This fact has led to a very unique landscape that is very flat, very wet and quite beautiful.

For the sake of our vacation we chose a small hotel/resort called the X’Tan Ha. This is a quaint, secluded and absolutely beautiful spot about 7 miles north of San Pedro on the Ambergris Caye. Accessible only by boat this secluded gem offered a week of rest and relaxation away from it all. While seclusion was definitely an aspect of desire town and amenities were also quite close and easily capitalized on.

These photos are mostly from in and around the X’Tan Ha but we did actually go outside and explore. You will just have to take my word for it though…

Rare Bigfoot Sighting Made in Maple Ridge British Columbia

0

Photo By Jonathan Duncan
Bigfoot is a species in the genus of Gigantanthropus and is a distant relative of humans. While remaining a primarily solitary mammal, Bigfoot has been occasionally viewed from a distance in a less than convincing fashion. Previous to a recent indecent in Maple Ridge BC the existence of this animal was blurry and unconfirmed.

In a recent event, zoologists and Bigfoot folklorists around the world have had previous theories turned upside. Bigfoot has made its presence more than known by racing a fat-tire bicycle in a cyclocross bicycle race in Maple Ridge BC called the Pumpkin Cross. The full action of this race was caught on film and has forever changed how we will view this amazing creature which is seemingly so similar to ourselves. Not only does Bigfoot display human like demeanor but also has a drive for competition and a short fuse when it comes to winning.

Kayaking The Sunshine Coast – Thormanby Island

1

Kayaking is not something that I have done a lot of lately but once upon a time I worked for a Kayak rental outfit on the sunshine coast and would occasional go practice an Eskimo roll. Those times are quite a few years in the past but this past weekend it was a ton of fun to do a small camping excursion via kayak to Thormanby Island adjacent to the Sunshine Coast. Here are a few photos from our brief Buccaneer Bay home.

Camping at Harrison Lake’s Bear Creek – Sasquatch Sightings May Occur!

0

This set of photos is from camping on Harrison Lake. The Bear Creek Forestry Campsite is a great location to camp just outside of Vancouver. Camping right on the lake there are around 40 sites available on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you want a great camp site about 2.5hrs from downtown Vancouver then this is a great option.

And, here are the photos…

My most recent media-based project was the creation of a video for BeerMeBC.com. I took a prototype Norco Bigfoot Fat Bike, Growler Cage and took a trip to the Deep Cove Brewery on an eccentric beer run. 3 Days after releasing the video has been splattered around the internet and has now been viewed in excess of 40,000 times. I hope you enjoy too!

 

A Weekend Escape to Wine Country

0

As a child the Okanagan seemed as if it was a world away. Over mountains, across streams and in a foreign world lies the mysterious Okanagan. Or, in a more mature point of view it is about a 4 hour drive. As a quick escape the towns of Oliver, Pentiction, Osoyoos and others make a great weekend getaway where you can enjoy lakes, sunny skies and of course delicious BC wine. That was just the plan a few weeks back and here are a few photos from that endeavor.

The 2013 Quebec Ride To Conquer Cancer in Photos

0

For the second year I had the opportunity to help support the Quebec Ride to Conquer Cancer. This ride runs from Montreal to Quebec City where 1800 riders banded together and raised $6.4 million dollars towards cancer research and treatment. Better known in beautiful Quebec as “Cyclo-défi Enbridge contre le cancer” this is another amazing event! I am proud to have been able to offer tech support on this and many other Ride to conquer Cancer events over the past 5 years. Next up is Alberta on August 10-11th.

Here are a jumble of photos from the ride!
