11 Feb Too Young To Get Old

I am by no means a talented filmer or editor, but I do pull out my point and shoot camera (or in most cases my phone) from time to time to record. I collected a bunch of random stuff I had filmed between January 2012 and January 2013 and put together this short video.

In the last year I visited both ends of the country to stay with friends and made plenty of new ones, as well as had numerous friends come and stay with me in Toronto. At times I may jokingly call myself an old man and complain about my aches and pains, but when I look at my life and the people I surround myself with I cannot help but feel young and invigorated. This video is full of those people and places, as well as a few cute animals.

27 Jun Two Kooks Spotted

Back in May we posted about out friends Patrick and Leland cycling across Canada. Shortly after, Jason Vawter sent us this photo he shot when he spotted the pair stopping in Hedley, BC for a water refill. He had noticed Leland’s Embassy hat attached to his panniers and remembered our original post about their trip. By now they have made their way clear across central Canada, and even stopped in Winnipeg and borrowed bikes from our web tech Cory Beal to do a little bit of BMX riding for a change. They should be on schedule to head in to northern Ontario, so keep your eyes out if you live in the eastern half of the country as you might spot them. Make sure you follow both Pat and Leland on their blogs.

14 May Two Kooks Across Canada

My two favourite kooks have left this morning for pretty much the ultimate Canadian adventure. Leland Nightingale and Patrick Krzyzanowski are riding their bikes (not their BMX bikes mind you, but their touring bikes) across Canada from Tofino, BC to St. John’s, NL. They will be spending the next 2.5 to 3 months traveling by bike throughout the Canadian wilderness, camping and sleeping in hammocks. They have both been staples of the Toronto BMX scene for a long time, and watching them prepare for a trip of this proportion has been inspiring to say the least. You can follow their adventures on Leland’s blog Had To Move or on Instagram. If you run across this pair on their journey, feel free to offer them a couch or a warm shower.

17 May Setups: Leland Nightingale

This is not so much a typical bike check but a look at an interesting bike setup employed by Leland Nightingale to get to and from the skatepark. The trouble when the nearest or best skatepark is a great distance away from your home is the pain it is to ride all the way there on your BMX bike, which many people will agree is not a very efficient bike to travel long distances. Not everyone has a car to get around, and for those that do, the current price of gas might have you rethinking that afternoon session. Leland decided to mount his BMX to the back of his touring bike as an ingenious solution to this problem and I asked him some questions about it. Click below to read what he had to say and a few more photos of his setup.
