    ( I hope it's ok to cross link forums like this, mods pls delete and accept my apology if it is )

    Young engineer from Vancouver BC crossing canada on an electric bike ! This is the guy behind, creator of the " Cycle Analyst " power meter i love so much, quite the contraption of a bike, modified with an Extracycle system to add cargo space..

    Into Ontario so far ! If anyone is in the path and can offer a power outlet he's on route to Moncton, i promissed i'd have cold beer in the fridge !

    All on 10 $ of electricity !

  2. Boy has an addicting smile. looks like he's got the right attitude!
    I may bring back MOOP and do that.
