Thank You from Team Tallbike!


A short quick video to show our Thank You's to all of our supporters and sponsors.  Without you we could never have done this.  Thank you to friends and families that have donated.  A special thank you to 'strangers' who chose to remain anonymous in sponsoring me for this ride.  My biggest gratitude to you all.  Your support made a difference.  Your donations will make an impact.  

Sincerely yours,
Eli

I'm Doing a Charity Bike Ride this Saturday and I need Sponsors! :)


Dear Friends,

I hope you are all doing well and have had a great summer!

First of all, I am never one to ask for help or for donations and I am a
terrible fundraiser. So bare with me as I have found it difficult to make
this post. But the more I think about it, I realize that this isn't really 
about me..
This coming Saturday Oct. 3rd, I, along with 500+ other riders, will be participating in a 50Km charity bike ride that supports 175+ charities who serve the displaced, vulnerable, and exploited. Specifically riding for Ratanak International who is passionate about empowering Cambodians through providing access to education, medical and social services and are focused on helping end child sex slavery. Myself, along with a team of friends, 4 of whom are under the age of 10!, are excited to be able to participate in this ride. I will be riding my Tallbike and we have built a 'special' bike for this year! My fundraising page is located here http://ride.w-ith.me/Eli-TeamTallbike And if you would like to see what my 'Tallbike' looks like and a preview of the 'special bike' that I mentioned, have a look at the video I created to promote our ride! https://youtu.be/0UCrSyNAmbE
Thank you for the time you've taken to read this post.  I will appreciate
any amount you can give, and at the very least I hope you enjoyed my
video!

Have a wonderful day,
Eli

A Day In The Life... My 2014 Trip to the Philippines

This posting is a little late, actually 1 year late. It has very little to no cycling content but I would like to share it with you.
 July of 2014, I was in the Philippines. A trip that produced many lasting memories, and amazing new experiences... somewhat a rarity for a big city boy like myself. My birthplace is always a beautiful place to visit allowing me to connect to my roots that I have left behind for Canada since I was a very young boy.

Cycle Touring - The Galloping Goose Trail, Shawnigan Lake and the Kinsol Trestle

Greetings readers.  Yes, I am still alive.  It has been a long time since my last blog post and it seems I've already forgotten how to write.  I have no excuses other than living a busy life with different and new interests.  I am sure many of you will be surprised to receive a notification of a new blog post from me and many will not even remember that you have subscribed to my blog.  Here's to everyone reading this that have kept up on their cycling adventures and keeping your dreams alive and to those that have made their dreams come true.  I know some of you have made that trek across the country, have achieved numerous bike tours, have taken on an overnight cycling and camping trips, and/or have finally jumped in and purchased that new bike.  Cheers!

In the meantime, please enjoy this video I created from footage from my last cycle tour in August of 2014.  Hopefully the video speaks for itself so I no longer have to write all about it.

And for those whom have kept in touch with me and have lost touch with directly and indirectly through this blog, and you probably know who you are,..  yes, I do miss the times we've had.  Here's to friendships made.  !
