BikeCAD spotting in Sweetpea video

Sunday, September 2nd, 2007
I’m proud to have Sweetpea Bicycles of Portland, Oregon using BikeCAD Pro to design their frames.  I love their bikes and their philosophy.Natalie Ramsland from Sweetpea was recently featured in this HP promotion. Natalie does an awesome job of presenting herself and her company in this clip.  However, BikeCAD pretty much owns this video between the 0:39 to 0:40 second marks.  Check it out!

Touring the North Shore of Lake Superior

Saturday, September 1st, 2007

A wedding in Thunder Bay seemed like a good excuse for a bike trip.  Greg and I left Thunder Bay last Sunday and arrived back in Waterloo today. To cover the 1350km in seven days, we elected to travel light, carrying only minimal clothing and tools.  We mostly slept in motels and ate at grocery stores and restaurants.  We also meant to travel with Nat, who was doing the same route with full camping gear.  Unfortunately, tailwinds, an excess of macaroni salad, a Zellers belt, and a communication system consisting of Post-it notes left at random tourist information centres conspired to keep us apart until the last night of the trip when we met up with Nat on the Chi-Cheemaun ferry between Manitoulin Island and Tobermory.  Although Nat is a really great guy, with the furious pace that he set on our final ride through Southern Ontario, I realized that it might have been for the best that we did not spend the entire week with the pro cyclist and RAAM record holder.  All in all, it was a great week of cycling through some of the most beautiful landscapes in Canada.  Here are some photos from the trip.
