Spring has arrived in Prince George, and so has Critical Mass. And now there is another fun ride, Kidical Mass. Kidical Mass was started in Eugene Oregon, in 2008.
Both of the first rides of the season held on the last Friday and Saturday of May, had similar amounts of people. Not tons, but the usual 8-10 people.

I am done with winter and have already done some hikes. As usual, it's a toss up between riding and hiking. I am trying to bike again to prep for this Summer's trip. My first long one was out to North Nechako to join in on a protest ride. The city is repaving a major road, but not adding any space for pedestrians or bikes! In fact, the city of Prince George has NO bike funding whatsoever this year. Wow! Let's hope that the bike protest changed their minds. Over 100 showed up for the ride, including children.
Here's a write up and photos from the protest ride.
Bike to Work Week is coming up at the end of the month, and I can't wait. I have already signed up a team!
On Sunday, February 16, I returned to Ginter's field with the Caledonia Ramblers. After staying home the weekend before because of the extreme cold, it was refreshing to go outside and enjoy the sun in warmer temperatures.

My apologies for the lack of posts. The Explore BC blog keeps me VERY busy, along with the Rambler's stuff. And now I am computerless for at least a month and a half, as I have had it with my XP computer! It is stored in my spare room closet as I threatened to throw it out my third floor window. The computers at the library have been a great help thank goodness.
I can save up for a real good computer, perhaps a Mac? Is that worth it? Might be longer wait then the end of June for that though. Are lower priced macs ok? Do not know yet, what I will chose, but I am enjoying my freedom at home from it and do not feel rushed to get a new one just yet! Good thing I have tablet to keep connected.
