10/12/2013 – I went for a two hour bike ride over the Thanksgiving weekend and due to work and other obligations did not have the opportunity to write about it yet. Due to the wet weather that is typical of autumn, it is difficult to find a good time to go out cycling. With work and other obligations getting in the way I have not been able to cycle as often as I did over the summer.

While the ride itself was rather typical there is something I would like to share with everyone. It is the beauty of nature and the wonderful fall colours that we get to experience every year this season. The changing of the leaves on a clear afternoon while the air is brisk was really the most ideal cycling condition.

I snapped a few pictures of the beautiful leaves turning and the complementary contrast against the blue sky made it incredibly appealing.

I really enjoyed this ride and hope to get a few good ones out before I have to put a full stop to the cycling for the winter months.

One of the fun events to watch out for is Night/SHIFT happening on November 2nd. There is going to a biking exhibit so watch out for that, all you avid cyclists!

2013/10/06 – Despite not having updated the site much in the last little while, I ensure you that this project is still one of my top priorities. A lot has happened in my life recently so I am just getting back into the groove of things. Today I am here to share with you the awesome event I had attended as part of Streets of KW, Color Me RAD 5K!

I will be forgiving this time that they spell Color the American way, but only because the race was soooo awesome!! I had gathered a bunch of friends and perfect strangers to join me to run the 5K with me. The race started at Kitchener City Hall and ended at Victoria Park! Our team of 10 runners got separated during the race as there were so many people, but reunited at the end of race for some colourful and sweaty hugs! :)

I had previously injured my shins playing Ultimate Frisbee the week prior, so the 5K was actually very difficult for me to run, however I made it and had a great time! At the finish line, the resident food trucks of the region as well as a stage playing live music was there to greet the colourful crowd.

I expect to continue to cycle and attend events in the awesome region of KW until the weather gets a bit colder, at which point I will put the project on hiatus and resume again in the spring! Look forward to sharing more stories with everyone!
