Greetings from BC West Coast

Life long cyclist here from the west coast of BC. I am semi-retired, adventure-oriented, and rekindling my love of touring and bikepacking. I'm currently rocking a modified 1997(ish) Cannondale Killer V 500 that I have begun transforming into a more tour-friendly platform instead of of strictly MTB.

Currently I pull a trailer with my 2 dogs in it (when they are not running with the bike) along with some gear. I have a rear rack with trunk bag, a top bar bag, and handlebar bag, but looking to switch to panniers to get some of the weight out of the trailer. It's brutal pulling it up hills.

There is tons of great information on this site and from what I can see most people here are pretty helpful and friendly. I look forward to learning more and maybe contributing something useful now and again.

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. - Henry David Thoreau

Cheers and welcome to BF!

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
