Retrospective

Soviet cycling in perspective: The Farce
This is Part 2 in the series. Read Part 1.
The system’s rules were not spelled out; there was no rule book, no instruction manual and no clearly defined path to take. You listen to those who have gone before you, like Trumheller, those who made it and if you liked what you saw, you went for it.

New York, Just like I picture it: Skyscrapers, Dim Sum, and everything!
It is good to be in New York at Christmas time. New Yorkers are, contrary to the stereotype, extremely friendly and engaging, and love to start up friendly conversations anywhere, on street corners, on buses, waiting for subways.

The Other Side Of Paradise
Driving around Oahu island is really interesting. On the east side there are snorkeling spots, beaches and small towns. On the north shore, there are beautiful beaches and big waves – surfing paradise.

Cycling in Edmonton

By: Andrew Hanon

Middle-aged men in lycra taking to Edmonton streets
Peter Heppleston hasn’t been able to ride his bike since June 13, when he crashed on a mountain road in Jasper. The wipeout, at about 60 kmh, put the 65-year-old in hospital with a broken collar bone, damaged hip and countless scrapes and bruises. He’s itching to get back in the saddle.
