Mayor’s Ride 2016

Our community has a brand new mayor. He’s young, energetic and he cycles! The local cycling club thought it would be a great idea to get area cyclists together for a ride with the mayor to discuss cycling infrastructure & safety and to show our new mayor that there is a growing culture of cycling in Saint John.

Here are video highlights from today’s ride. SOUNDTRACK: “Who We Are” by The Candles

Broken Gear Cable

Out for a 50 km ride late afternoon. Broke the rear gear cable on my road bike about 10 km from home. Only 10 minutes from closing time at our local bike shop… no time to ride across town to get it fixed.

Our community had been working hard to promote cycling in our region and lobby for better cycling infrastructure & bike safety. Our brand new Mayor (Don Darling) is participating in a group ride tomorrow morning at 10 am. I guess I’ll have to take Molly for tomorrow’s ride. If you don’t know what a “molly” is, it’s the hybrid offspring of a female horse (mare) and a male donkey (jack)  http://messybeast.com/genetics/hybrid-equines.htm

I’ll have the gopro for the Mayor’s ride tomorrow…. stay tuned….
