    Thanks to everyone who shared their train story with us on our Facebook page. We love reading them! Here's Robert's train story, our traveller of the month: "I love the convenience and comfort of the train. Whether I'm going to Montreal or Ottawa there is always a train that fits into my schedule. I prefer the personalised service of the train over the more impersonal service of the plane. There is something almost romantic about train travel. Oh, and the meals in Business class are always delicious."

    When you start on a journey such as a music cycling tour across a large country like Canada, no amount of planning can save you from the unknown. As it turns out, this is where the best moments manage to sneak in, just out of sight of your plans. When I decided to go on tour, I went out with the idea that the music was secondary to talking about the David Suzuki Foundation's Blue Dot movement. This was for the simple reason that without the clean air, water, and soil that the movement is fighting for, I can't make music. Now who really wants to talk about air, water, and soil? Boring. During a moment of total inspiration at a show in Calgary, I found a way to have this become a subject that makes sense to more people: no clean water = bad beer, no clean soil = bad barley = bad beer. Do you see the pattern? Interested in a healthy environment now? I'm interested in a beer, hold on... I'm back! What the heck is the Blue Dot anyway? It's about people like you and I getting involved in politics at the municipal level. The idea is to pass local motions that show that citizens care about living in a healthy environment. The idea behind the tour was to use music, biking, and my beautiful face to bring some attention to the Blue Dot movement. During the interviews the inevitable questions came up, such as "How much does your butt hurt from all the cycling?" Being the media savvy guy I am, I managed to turn the conversation around and talk about clean air and water! Besides all the pretty pictures, what actually happened on the tour? Remember that idea that the best things happen outside our plans? Getting to Kelowna, BC turned out to be one of those moments. Technology is wonderful, having a smart phone made all kinds of interviews on the road possible. It also gave us the chance to go off course in a way we never would have with a map! We found ourselves riding along and arriving at a part of a highway we had been on all day that was now no longer open to cyclists. No biggy right, except that the detour we would have to take would add 200km to get to Kelowna where I had a show the next night. So what happened next was what might be called luck: a thumb out for some help, the first people to stop actually picked us up! Now not only do Pat and Jessica get us out of a jam, they dropped us off at their parent's place, who happen to be amazing folks. Jessica's mom and dad, Ken and Anne, built their house, including the greenhouse that was attached. On top of all this, it was Pat's birthday! An impromptu concert, cake, great conversation, a chance encounter with kind people that give me hope for the world. The next day Pat ended up dropping us off 110km from Kelowna in Keremeos, the distance we would have had to ride if not for the detour. We roamed through valleys of peaches and other orchards, a truly wonderful day on the bike. To top it all off the concert in Kelowna was at a Pear orchard, where I picked grapes in the courtyard. There is kindness in the world, sometimes we have to make ourselves vulnerable enough to feel it, and always remember to give it away to others. I'll tell more stories in the next few days, but for the moment I'll just say a big thanks to all the kind folks that helped me across and made the whole thing an amazing experience. A special thanks to my partner, manager and wife-to-be in 2 weeks from now: Diane. You truly are a home for my heart. Thanks to all the wonderful folks who hosted us along the way: Kim in Vancouver, Jessica, Patrick, Anne and Ken in Princeton, Jasmine and Mario in Kelowna, Clare and Mark, and Lise and Peter in Calgary, Renée and Michel in Piapot, Ron in Regina, Anna, Peter, Kate, Noel and John in Winnipeg, Anne and Paul in Toronto, Colin and Deanna, and Dave and Rae in Millbrook, Seamus in Westport, Doum et Jo in Ottawa Thanks to the David Suzuki Foundation’s team: Alaya, Alvin, Shae and Sophika in BC, Cameron throughout Canada, Andrée-Lise, Cam, Humeyra, Julie, Karel and Manon in Montreal Thanks to my sponsors: Yuba Bicycles, Outdoor Gear Canada, VIA Rail Canada Thanks to all the great Blue Dot folks we met along the way: Kitty and Ellen in Vancouver, Lynda, Ezra and his daughter in Kelowna, Robin, Dylan, Amanda, Amie, Ibeth, Romella in Calgary, Julian and Jesska in Regina, Elizabeth and Ed in Winnipeg, Catorina in Millbrook, Carol and Linda in Westport, Linda and her team in Ottawa, Cam and his team in Montreal Thanks to all the musicians who played by my side on this tour: Don Alder in Vancouver, Ben Sures in Calgary, The Brights in Toronto, Dave Ross MacDonald in Millbrook, Chris White and Patricia Reynolds in Ottawa, Ian Kelly and Rob Lutes in Montreal
