The Tour La Nuit event in Ottawa is put on by Capital VeloFest and is a fun 20km night ride that takes place in the fall. I had missed it last year but was determined to go this year and made sure I had lots of ‘flair’.
Escape Manor or how I failed my first escape room
I finally got around to trying an escape room but my first attempt met with failure. From a social psychology perspective, it was just as fun to watch as it was to solve some of the puzzles we came across. I will be definitely going back for more. Read on to find out why we failed.
Ottawa – Stony Swamp
Stony Swamp is a great place to go for a quick mountain bike ride and I’ve included a short video of me doing what I love to do (after the break). It is also a good place for budding mountain bikers who are not afraid to get dirty, I would highly recommend going with a friend and take your time to explore what the area has to offer.
Ottawa Comic Con – 2013
Ottawa Comic Con 2013 has passed and it was a success. Bigger, better organized and more people. Read past the break to find out what were some of the highlights and to see the cosplay.
The Rideau Trail is a 305km hiking trail that was developed back in 1971. Meant for anything but biking, Chris and I decided to bike it. Not one of our better ideas but it definitely created some long lasting memories and tested our endurance.
Video Games Live – 2012 – Level 2
Video Games Live is a traveling video game concert that includes composers, conductors, orchestras and choirs as part of their group. Yes, video game music has come a long way since the beeps of Pong and Asteroids. Jump in to see what it is all about and listen some classics that you may recognize.
Ottawa to Kingston – Road
There are a dozen ways to get from Ottawa to Kingston on a road bike and they all take you through small picturesque towns. Not a particularly tough trip is you go in a group of bikers where one can draft off your fellow riders, talk to them and speed along on your feather light road bike with your ultra thin tires. A different story when you are a steel framed mountain bike with knobby tires.
Ottawa – Lusk Falls
Lusk Falls is the worst kept secret of the National Capital Region. It is my favourite hike to do in the Ottawa area and it is found in a quiet part of the Gatineau Hills. Why does it top my list for best trail? Read on to find out.
