Guess I’d Better Start Driving!

I had to LOL at this one! My phone just alerted me (thanks to Waze) that I should be leaving soon for an appointment…the funny thing is, the appointment is on my personal calendar, and it’s just the Leafs/ Bruins game in Boston tonight!

New Cycling Toys from Garmin @ CES2016!

Let me start by saying I love my Garmin stuff when it comes to biking.
