    Hi from Canada

    Hi everyone,
    I'm new to this forum, I live in Toronto, and it's finally the spring here, so no more icebiking for a while! I ride a Mikado "de Champlain" (made in Canada, of course) and I like cyclotouring and cyclocamping.

    Hello Claire! Nice to see another Canuck here. Even better, a touring Canuck!

    Cheers!

    hello and welcome
    No matter how fast I'm going, I'm in no hurry.
    there are no bicycles in the valley, the only bicycle you find in the valley is the bicycle you ride down there.
    Ride in the front, this space is available to anyone that wishes to take it-jjmolyet

    Hello from Québec.

    I still love touring but haven't done much lately, as we have two daughters, 7 and 3. For the last 2 years, I have done a short 5-6 day tour with the oldest daughter on her trailercycle (going to my mother's home in Trois-Rivières via different routes, which means 2 days of riding per direction). We might do something longer this year, depending on the weather.

    Ialso do lots of day trips with both daughters -- me towing a trailercycle and a child trailer --, plus lots of utility cycling. I'm one of those who find that a touring bike by itself is a lightweight bike...
