We first met Brenna last October when she rode into our town and couch-surfed with us on her way to a bicycle mechanic's course on nearby Quadra Island. She is a lovely, wise young woman who had…Continue
"As a foreigner who as travelled to and stayed in Adelaide over the course of three summers I'd have to agree - Adelaide is a lovely city and well deserving of the accolades. I grew up in Victoria, BC, a small city much joked about an maligned…"
"I found riding in Adelaide scary as, but no different than riding in any other big city. Same as Vancouver (2 million) or even little Victoria (BC) (<1/4 million)) or any other reasonably sized metropolis. Give me those forest trails over the…"
"Tonic water's the stuff. It's the quinine in it that does the trick. You can get it in little pills too. Worked a treat for me. I was waking up to locked up calves every morning, but after a couple of days of those quinine tablets all is…"
"Big difference eh? Loved the move up myself. I might get down to Rads this winter... erm, summer, depending on the weather up here, and if I do would love to hook up with some trail rides. Though the bike I have down there is my old 26er :O Oh well.
