I love it when a bike blogger up in The Great White North picks Bicycle Diaries for their blog roll. I've always harbored secret ambitions that my modest attempts at blogging would attract the attention of folks outside my own country. First it's a great ego boost. Second, except for grad school and work overseas, I've always lived within 50 miles of the Canadian Border.
Finally, my father's people originally migrated to Canada in the early 18th Century. The story goes that one shady ancestor ran afoul of the law - he didn't pay his debts! To escape he hid the family in a hay wagon that was being ferried across Lake Ontario (to the right). And that, ultimately, is why I'm from Western New York.
I'm paying back the compliment to Dave Larsen by putting his blog, One Gear One Planet, in my blog roll ... and including below the post in which he mentions Bicycle Diaries. It also offers a good list of other interesting blogs for your perusal.
