Here from Cochrane, Ontario CANADA

I joined a few weeks ago, but posted for the first time today. My dream is to be able to head off along the road in any direction on a bike from a new country or region every so often. Yup - I love to tour. I have not done a lot but when I have - it has been great (and tough, too, when the wind blows.).

I live in northern Ontario in a wee town that gets quite the winter. So, along with touring, I either have to cycle in the winter and snow or miss out for many months of the year when it can easily be down to -40 C.

Hello Brent, your CGOAB blog was interesting (I don't think I've ever read a boring CGOAB blog, now that I think about it).

I felt for you when you talked about running out of reading material--I've been desperate enough to read local equivalents of People magazine on some trips .

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !
