Pico's Cycling - Tales of the Road October 2014 Vol. 2 No. 10


The fall has begun in the part of the world and we have a full roster of articles for our readers once again. We're only one issue away from completing a full year as an online bicycle touring magazine. Hoping to get after a few potential authors to make our anniversary issue something special.

In my view this wasn't a real long distance self-contained tour. It was a great start for me. I arrived at my destination with almost no problems. Just one disappointment when I got there...


Jack Hawkins fills us in on his latest cycling read. A solid book with a solid review. Tempted to run out and get a copy myself.

Off road trail cycling can be a lot of fun. I reminisce about some of the riding I did growing up. The Shorthills of the Niagara Peninsula was one of my favourite destinations when I just wanted to explore. I cover my other close range choices.


In my experience even solo riding is not necessarily an antisocial activity. Jack Hawkins who meets all kinds of cyclist tell us how it happens.


Opening your eyes to your own local commute. It might be more interesting that you think. I admit this commute had a lot to see but I've had others that had a lot to see as well. Take a look around you wherever you ride.

That's it for another month. We still have the ambition of continuing to develop and improve what we have here. Keep on reading and keep on riding.
