The Cliff: Last Snowshoe of 2012

It was a perfect day to go on the last Caledonia Ramblers snowshoe trip for 2012.  The sun was out, it wasn't too cold or warm, and the snow was perfect!  Twenty people showed up for the trip, which was an incredible amount.

Happy New Year's!

I'd like to send out a special Happy New Year's to the 2 awesome guys that I rode with for 4 days in Oregon and California!  I had the time of my life riding with you and I am glad that I bumped into you... All the best for the New Year's.

I'd also like to wish Deanna W.  a Happy New Year's too. Thanks for doing the adventure with me!  I cherish the memories.....

Happy New Year's to all my followers too...I know that I haven't posted as much since I came back to home.....but I know that there will be more adventures on and off the bicycle to post here.... Thanks for following!

The Cliff - preview

I had an awesome Christmas at my parent's on Vancouver Island, but it's good to be back home to get some more snowshoeing in!  Today I went snowshoeing to the Cliff.  It was a very beautiful day.  There was a full moonlight snowshoe trip on Friday night, but I was tired from taking an overnight bus home, so I just rested.

I took a few photos today as I hardly use the camera.. I had a bit of fun with it today!  I'll post a full trip report in the next day or so...

Piderny- Southwest Loop Snowshoe

On Sunday December 16, I led nine people on a snowshoe around Piderny.  Honestly though, without the help of Nowell, I would have got us lost!  Thanks Nowell.  We had a big snowfall, and it was not very cold, so it was a perfect snowshoeing day!

Merry Christmas everyone!  I'll be offline for a week...

The Piderny Triangle

My gosh!  I am back in action.  I swear when the season changes, I get a lazy streak, or at least I think so, despite me riding to work every day on my bike.

Free at last!
I've started snowshoeing again with the Caledonia Ramblers as there now is enough snow to snowshoe, or sort of.  We still got caught in snags..

Snowshoeing is back!

Me and Moon
Yeh!  I've finally got back into action with the Caledonia Ramblers.  I'm back to snowshoeing with them as enough snow has fallen down to need them. If I didn't bike to work every day, I'd be in sad shape!

It felt really good to get out and get some fresh air... We hiked around Piderny. I'll do a better post during the next few days as I have a few good photos that I took of the trip.

Being Seen

I've been riding every day to work in the dark.  I have plenty of lights, but I am always looking for better ways to be seen.  I currently ride with a dark jacket/pants.  I would love to find a bright jacket that can keep me warm in the Winter.  I suppose wearing wool would do the trick, but I love my down jacket since I ride for only 5 minutes.

These two items recently caught my attention:

This is a cool 360 LED jacket that needs funding to be produced.  I am hoping that it makes enough, but if not, that they try again! It looks good, but not thick and warm for winter..  Still it would be good for tour riding too.

It has been created by Badger Gear

I seen one bright jacket with an LED light in the back, but this is so much better!

I also seen this back light that 'creates' a bike lane.  Pretty cool even though it's a bit pricey.

I've really been thinking about improving light as even with reflective gear and the lights I have, I wonder how effective it is. Recently two Joggers got run over by a car even though they were wearing reflective gear and lights...

I suppose no amount of safety gear will prevent that from happening...
