Traveling from Alajuela to Tamarindo
Vera and I left hotel ‘Vida Tropical’ in Alajuela in the morning. We packed our luggage in the car and left Alajuela without any rush. We had the whole day in front of us for the 245 km long road trip to our predetermined destination – small beach town of Tamarindo, on the Pacific Ocean.

Retro Cycling

By Edmond Hood

Tour de France through the Decades:
Sunday July 20th 1969; that’s 43 years ago now but I remember it clearly as the day that I first became aware of professional bicycle racing – I was 18 years-old. I walked in to the living room of our little flat in Kirkcaldy, Scotland and glanced at the black and white TV in the corner; the evening news had just begun and the picture was of a cycling track with the stands crammed to capacity.

Edmonton Life

 

By: Kathleen Bell

An Edmonton native offers cultural hints for out-of-province students.
The quest for knowledge begins anew this autumn as students from all over the province, country, and world are stuffed into Edmonton’s institutions of higher learning — forced, therefore, to become responsible, intelligent young adults … or keg stand champs.

Women’s cycling

By: Sean Lee

Bicycle racing and… why women’s cycling is fascinating!
It has been a long held belief in boxing that sex before a bout will leave a fighter with weak legs. Australian swimming legend Dawn Fraser on the other hand was of the opinion that it enhanced athletic performance, for her anyway.

Top rides

By: Steve Thomas

Gran Fondos are gaining popularity
Sportives, sportifs, gran fondos, etapes, marchas – whatever you prefer to call them, these massparticipation events are growing in popularity. In 2013, there are more happening in Canada than ever before. For many of us, lining up with a few thousand other riders to tackle an epic ride on legendary roads and having some frills lavished upon us are the highlights of the year.

My daughter just turned 30-something!

By: Zdenko Kahlina

My daughter just turned 30… something!
My daughter Sanja will turn 30-something in few days. I am as old as dirt! I originally wrote this on her 30th birthday, but decided to re-post because I still feel the same. The last 30-something years have been a journey that I wouldn’t have missed for anything. I am not exactly sure where the time went. We sure squeezed in an awful lot of fun though, didn’t we?
