You know the ones I mean — bikes loaded down, their grimaced, sweating faces telling me how tough they are, and intimidating me into thinking, "I can't imagine I could ever do that." Those guys have nothing on my new heroes, the Skarstedt/Roberts/St Read more

Ok, so we share it with Alaska, but it starts in the Yukon. And I hope you've already submitted your registration for this year's June 15 race. Read more

I've always had trouble when it came to focusing on a particular passion in my life. Anyone who knows me would likely say that I am constantly pursuing my passions. That's the point: it is passions, plural, and they are changing all the time. I neve Read more

Yukon History

We stayed four nights in Bahia de Tortugas. We'd ridden across the Viscaino Desert to the very tip of the Viscaino Peninsula, and now it was time to change directions and go east for a bit. Read more

The warm weather a few weeks ago had us itching to plan a little motorcycle trip for our first free weekend in months. As it happened, that same weekend was the season opening for the Destruction Bay Lodge. The owner, ever a busy host, brought in a Read more

Why do you ride? I'm serious. I want to know. I want to hear from every woman who reads this column. I want to know why you ride. And if you are still riding on the back (or if you don't ride at all), I want to know why you are still NOT riding. Read more

I am so jealous. I just picked my guy up from the airport, back from a two-day Superbike school in California. And he was just one of four Yukon guys who got off the plane with racing track prints on their retinas. Read more

So what's Dean Eyre doing here? He's taking the job of finding the right bikes for people really seriously – and having fun doing it. Eyre is the owner of Cadence Cycle at 508 Wood Street, in the centre of downtown Whitehorse. Yes, it used to be Ph Read more

How much time do you have, I mean to think, right now? If you are like me, the answer is probably, "Not much." Keeping track of and organizing all the things that I have to DO seems to take up all my mental energy when it comes to everyday life. Th Read more

It was a bit like being in a B movie. We were on our way north from Baja, California and had just broken free from our bypass of Los Angeles via the LA freeways. LA has serious freeways. Read more

I'm sitting on the ground beside my bike. I've tried to stand up – twice – but the ground kept tilting to a 45-degree angle. Three of my four teammates are standing around me, offering moral support while we wait for the emergency vehicle. "Why are Read more

A wise person in my life recently told me, "In order to get to that place or circumstance where you want to be in your life, you have to already be there." I can see your eyebrows pinching together and your mind doing the "What?" thing as you read t Read more

Neil Pert, in his book Ghost Rider, said that for "the 'armchair traveller', it's only the vicarious, pristine experiences they want to share ... not the unhygienic, exhausting reality ... the solitary traveller is frequently invested by others with Read more

I spent the last hour manifesting my next motorcycle adventure. Physically, I've been sitting on an airplane travelling between Whitehorse and Vancouver. That means my motorcycle is not my best buddy on this trip. It is sitting at home, in the drivew Read more

It is amazing what is popping up on Whitehorse trails these days. This week's Sunday ride leader was my friend, Rick. As well as being an avid cyclist, he is also a cross-country skier. He knows the Mount McIntyre trails very well and that is good. Read more

Despite the fact that the Kluane Chilkat International Road Relay was looming and I have committed to Leg 6 and the big hill it ends with, we decided to ditch the wind for the trees on a recent ride, and tasked our friend Dave with leading us on a mo Read more

Last month, he completed his treatment, aside from a few drugs that he will keep taking until the end of the year. We are confident that the treatment was successful. We are celebrating by becoming involved with the Motorcycle Ride For Dad, Canada's Read more
