Summertime

Summer is a time to kick back and relax. That does not necessarily mean being inactive, but what it does mean to me is taking a break from social media and getting outdoors to enjoy the sun, the scenery, and real people doing real things. I have very little time now to post on social media as I am endeavouring to live my life to the fullest, by my standards, and not that which is imposed on us by the constant nagging of social media.

Here is a short video of some of my playtime activities to keep the electronically dependant happy for a least…well..um…30 seconds or so 🙂

Emerging Beauty

Wascana Park in central Regina is a popular destination for both locals and tourists alike. There is just something exquisite about having a beautiful man-made lake in the middle of a major city on the prairies of western Canada.

Without a doubt, one of my favourite parks to cycle through, whether it be on a fixed-gear city bike, a road bike, or even a time trial bike enroute to the straight and flat highways east of Regina.

The South Side

Although this video was shot in the early spring, I wanted to do a compare and contrast clip to be shot later on in the summer. Although the scenery is still drab and dull and the park roads were wet and full of potholes from the winter freeze/thaw cycles, this will soon change to new pavement and the beautiful shades of green in the summer season. Warm sunshine and lazy days on the beach – what’s not to like?

The Speed Racer

Just when you think you are all alone…the Speed Racer blows by you like you’re standing still, soon to vanish into the far horizon 🙂
