Not only is it the month I arrived here on earth, but there’s a palpable energy in the air as everything bursts into life after a long, cold, and dark winter. Growing up on the family farm in Niagara, the cycles of nature governed our lives—and our fortune. May symbolized the welcome array of fine colour, the excitement of new growth and the…
Rubber Side Down—Adventures of a Touring Girl in Ontario
In 2007, I decided that I wanted to ride a motorcycle. I did not have a brother, boyfriend or father who rode—I didn’t even have many friends who rode. I just knew that it was something I wanted to experience for myself. So, in April 2007, with very little education on the matter, I purchased a second-hand Kawasaki Ninja 500EX. As an added incentive, it had recently been in an accident and I could have it…

The Happiness of Loneliness—Solo Ride Through Ontario's Highlands
What’s the essence of a great road trip? Is it just good company, or good roads, or good times? Can it be just one or the other? Or do you need all three?
