Tour de Perogy 2014

I started this event back in ’07 with the idea that it would be nice to wind up the summer with a ride to the Ukrainian Heritage Village when they held their annual Harvest Festival.

It is nice to look back on those past rides and see how we have changed over the years…


Such little girls…


We were a small group that first year…










I was away in Portland in 2012 and 2013 but despite that, the ride still went on in my absence… will have to track down pictures from other folks for those rides.

And here we come to 2014 when there were only three of us riding on what was a cold and overcast day where most of our time was spent riding in the rain… the skies cleared while we were at the village which was very nice.

I am pretty sure Brian has been on every ride with his Catrike…



We dedicated this ride to our friend Ian who passed away several years ago, we know that if he was with us he would have ridden regardless of the weather and the ride he was on in 2010 was pretty similar except that we also had some evil wind to contend with.

Brian and I raised a bottle of iced tea in his honour as this was his favourite drink, something that we despise btw.

And that little girl has grown up (she is now 14)… and back in 2007 I had not yet met the beautiful woman who is now my wife.


Time to start looking at 2015… maybe it won’t rain.
