Pico's Cycling - Tales of the Road February 2014 Vol. 2 No. 2



I had a very difficult month as far as getting this February issue ready but with determination and a lot of help, we are right on time. Jack Hawkins brings us an exclusive interview with winter solo rider Iohan Gueorguiev on his way from Toronto to Halifax. Easily the highlight of this winter issue. Our cover features this intrepid cyclist bike raised in victory again courtesy our own Jack Hawkins.

Our cover story. Riding 2000 kilometres from Toronto to Halifax, Iohan Gueorguiev proves that it can be done even in the Canadian winter.

Second stories in a series. Last month we were "Scouting the Route". This month we do a real shake down tour with a group of novices. Great trip. It was good enough to be the season's highlight for our cycling club all by itself. Don't go away though next month, we'll be following up the real tour de force.

Homebuilt Bike Trailer

This isn't a how-to article. This a story of being determined to ride with a young family without a lot of money to back up that dream.

Not every tour I've ever been on was completely successful, but I've never gone on one that wasn't memorable. That trailer we built served us surprisingly well.

Cycling Fitness Over the Winter Months

Finally for those who don't embrace the cold, Jack Hawkins brings us an article on how to keep yourself ready for those tours coming. Be ready when the weather is kinder.

So far I'm proud of how this Webzine is turning out. With Jack's help I think we get some needed variety. We'd love to add articles and stories from other writers. Three issues and we are still going strong. Hope to be able to pay more attention to it in the coming months. We do still have a few planned articles on our plate. I hope our readers are looking forward to them. See you all again next month. Until then keep pedalling.
