Blog – Site Status Update!

Everyday Adam has been live for 4 months now, and so far, things have been going pretty great! Updates have been a bit slow lately because I’ve been planning a huge bike tour. Jump ahead to see what’s been going on, and what to expect from Everyday Adam over the next few months!

Site Update

Everyday Adam went live back in March, so it’s been about 4 months now that I’ve been publishing articles, adventures, and reviews.

For the most part, site traffic has been generated from Facebook, Instagram, and Reddit (@everdayadam) – make sure to subscribe if you haven’t already – it’s a great way to get notified of new content! The site is getting a couple thousand unique visits per post now, so keep clicking and telling your friends! You can find all of the appropriate links in the upper right of the site, except for Reddit, which, for whatever reason, I haven’t been able to find a plugin for just yet.

Feedback has been generally positive, so thanks to all of you who have taken the time to write to me. If there’s anything you’d like to see in the future on Everyday Adam, be sure to let me know and I will do my best to make it so.

Where are the New Posts?

Two weekends ago Anna and I drove down to Mississauga and took our bikes along the perimeter of Lake Ontario all the way to Niagara Falls (About 120km) and spent the weekend. I’ve got a handful of video footage from my GoPro and a whole bunch of photos to post, but things have been a bit busy… Expect to see that post soon!

Last weekend Anna and I both loaded up our bikes with full camping and cooking gear, and rode down to the Rideau River Provincial Park for a night of camping with a big group for a birthday party. This was done to prepare ourselves for a huge upcoming trip, which brings me to the main reason why updates have been a bit slow lately…

This fall I’ll be taking my bike down through Lake Placid, to Portland, where I’ll take a ferry to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. From there, I’ll be following the Southern Coast all the way along to Baddeck, along the Cabot Trail, and then off to Prince Edward Island for a few days. If all goes well, Anna will meet me in PEI and we will do a tour of the island together by bike. After Prince Edward Island, I’ll be heading off to visit Moncton, Saint Johns, and Fredericton before heading north through Quebec City, Montreal, and finally, back home.

So, as you can see, this is a pretty huge trip! I am  hoping to complete this journey of approximately 4,000km in 30 days , but I have booked 37 days in the case of any accidents, illnesses, or general good times that may prevent me from biking every day.

So What’s Next?

Over the next week or so I’ll be putting together some articles about the trip planning, and about the past couple adventures. I’m hoping to put together a handful of content so that I can continue to post new stuff while on the road, away from my main computer.

In a little over a month from now, I’ll be able to start posting video from the actual trip, and since it is a pretty lengthy trip, it will be a great chance to showcase some equipment after a month of continuous use!

So – thank you all for your patience, and stay tuned! There’s a whole lot planned, including Everyday Adam’s greatest adventure yet!
