01 Feb DAVID MCCAIG PHOTO BLOG

David McCaig is a talented photographer and rider originally from the Ottawa area, and for the last number of years has been traveling the globe with both his cameras and bicycles in tow. From touring the coast of Australia, to working as a courier in Tasmania, to living in a squatter house in London, England and cycling to Egypt (click that to view a photo documentary of that trip from last winter), Dave’s life seems to constantly revolve around being on a bike. Fortunately for others, he usually carries a camera with him, allowing us to catch a glimpse of what it is all like. Like so many photographers that simply want to share their work with the world, he recently set up a photo blog. It’s only a couple of posts deep so far, but check often for ongoing updates.

17 Jan 40 AND ROLLIN’: THE ROLAND LABRECQUE INTERVIEW

Trying to write an introduction to an interview with a friend that you admire is always an awkward thing. You don’t want it to come across as some sort of hero worship and blindly praise, or fill it with inside stories that have no relevance to the reader. When it comes to Roland Labrecque, what I can say is that he wears many hats; rider, competitor, contest organizer, ramp builder, father, husband, and more. At 40, he’s been a staple and active member of his city’s BMX community, with a history of efforts to improve relations with the city over the development of parks and equal access for bikes. But don’t be fooled, I don’t think you should know about Roland simply because of his age and pursuits to still shred. He’s an interesting individual beyond just that.

Over the last ten years of knowing him, he’s always been an extremely hard working and modest individual. He puts 100% in to everything he does in his life, no matter how big or small. I sat down to ask him some questions about his past, present, riding, injuries, home renovation, juggling responsibilities, his son, and more. Click below to read the full interview with Roland Labrecque, who is 40 and rollin’.
