The Blog of Frog (#2)

If you haven’t read the first ‘Blog of Frog’ click here I finished the last blog by saying that since arriving back from Europe, Frog has filled my life with love, cuddles, laughter, destruction, and a little stress.

I wasn’t sure if I would write a blog post about this. But sitting here in Lorne (one of my favourite places), looking out onto the ocean, and remembering all of the wonderful things that is Jake, it felt right to write. I choose to take a few days away by myself for the ‘year since’. Self-reflection for me is so important, and in truth I couldn’t face being around people this weekend.

Why I Ride

*Written by Steve* “Why do you ride?” is a question most cyclists have been asked on many occasions, and it’s easy to respond with the clichés like fitness, weight loss, or #outsideisfree. My answer has changed over the years from utilitarian purposes, to social outlets, and everything in between. I’m getting ahead of myself, let’s rewind to 2012. I was […]
