Friends For Life: A Bike Rally Recounting

Friends for Life Bike Rally

"We’re all sleeping in tents, on not-so-inflated inflatable mattresses. Everything I own is sort of damp, and I’m beginning to believe that waterproof tents don’t actually exist. This is the setup for a terrible day, but for reasons I’m not clear on, I’m having the time of my life."

Quick Guide to Cyclocross (aka Tough Mudder on a bike)

Silvergoose CX
You`ve heard of cyclocross, right? Some have probably seen a growing number of `cross`bikes at their local bike shop and wondered, "Why are there nobby tires on that road bike?". 

We wanted to get some of the fundamentals sorted out for you, so we reached out to John Hauser, Event Chief at The Silver Goose Cyclo-Cross Race based out of Midland, Ontario.

Our family booked a weekend trip with them last year and had a good time. So we booked the three of us for this late September weekend tour and trail ride. Booking fall outdoor activities far in advance of any realistic weather forecast is always a bit risky. Occasionally, you can end up with a weekend like this one.
