I had the pleasure of meeting Bill when he was in Waterloo a few weeks ago. He was hanging about Waterloo Town Square grabbing a bite to eat. Had a good talk about his bike and some of his adventures.

I hope Mr. Parker isn't hoping to catch a train in Thunder Bay. There hasn't been one there for decades. Sudbury Junction is a better bet, unless he really wants to cycle to Armstrong or Sioux Lookout.

Hi Bill

You'd better tell Bill Parker to think a little more about cycling to Thunder Bay and catching the train back to Edmonton. VIA Rail doesn't come through Thunder Bay - it runs on the CN tracks and the closest it comes is the small hamlet of Armstrong, about 200 kms north. Winnipeg might be a better option.

Enjoy your column!

  • North America is eventually going to figure out that, for all the right reasons, we need more bicycles on our roads. Dust off your bicycle and go cycling. And if the gas-burning dinosaurs start to crowd you, it's your road and you paid for it. Take the lane for yourself.
