Velo Volant

An outdoor resort called Au Diable Vert offers the world’s highest suspended bicycle ride, the Velo Volant. Watch the ground disappear beneath your feet as you peddle off the platform connected to a kilometre-long cable that suspends you up to thirty metres above the ground. Think less zipline or roller coaster, and more gentle peddle across ravines and waterfalls, and through forests of maple and pine.

2017Escape

New 2017 Ford Escape

It’s a rare occasion when the name of a car aligns so perfectly with what I’ve used it for. Whether rocketing along the notorious Trans-Labrador Highway, or cruising among the mountainous candy of the Icefield Parkway, the Ford Escape has indeed lived up to its name. It has stood up to some pretty epic challenges, and that includes taking a 6-month baby on a 30-day cross-country book tour. Compact yet spacious, powerful yet fuel efficient, and loaded with features you’ll soon wonder how you did without, the Ford Escape more than lives up to its moniker. – Robin Esrock
