Wanted: Bike Rack

I am looking for a two bike platform style bike rack to buy, rent or borrow.  Would prefer not to have to get a trailer hitch but would consider all options.  A Thule 9003 Pro Raceway would be ideal.See More

"Sorry I'm away, but it does sound like a fun event.  I've not ridden much up that way, but  I did spend a fair bit of my youth bombing around up there.  Nice area, should be a good ride."

"I rode T4K for three years, and there were a fair number of  other BCCers who rode in those years.  I confess, however, that I rode as part of a west end club called Velocity.  It is a well-organized ride and quite a lot of fun. …"

The Lakeshore this Weekend

Posted on July 9, 2009 at 5:16pm 1 Comment

According to all media, parts of the Lakeshore are closed in both directions all weekend. Maybe we could head east this weekend. Any suggestions? (I can't seem to get the link as a live link, but you get my point).

Hey Albert I too heard about your crash. So sorry man, I can't imagine the pain of broken ribs. Rest and get well soon, I'm sure your bike is really upset that she feels "she let you down". :)

Hi Albert

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving

my email is and I would be very interested in that Diabetic info we were talking about

Hi Albert, 

It was great to see you too! It's been a long time so it was nice to see a few familiar faces still around. I hope you had a great ride yesterday and I hope to come out more often from now on. Have a great Sunday!

Thanks Albert,
Looking forwards to some early morning rides.
BTW, you are quite the fundraiser! Fantastic!

Hi Albert,
I'd be happy to give you (& your bike) a ride to and from Elgin Mills this Saturday. Where do you live? I'll pick you up.

Hey Albert. Thanks for your note. I'm fine. I think Michele is okay too, aside from a few scrapes. Bikes, not so. Let's see how those warranties hold up! I'm trying to organize a loaner in the meantime, so hope to see you out there soon!

Hi Albert,
I was actually going to check my bike in today, just so I'm not dealing with gear and my bike tomorrow morning. I have just noticed a cut in my back tire (have my bike with me at work today), so will need to deal with this today. Glad that I saw it now instead of en route! Thanks for your cell number, will definately look for you during the ride, and for the after ride stuff. Last year Steamwhistle was a sponsor and there were 4 free beer tickets for us apres ride :)
If I don't end up finding you pre-ride, have a good and safe one and will look for you guys at camp.

Hi Albert,
The spin shoes that would work would have SPD cleats, as most spin bikes have that type. You can pick them up at any bike shop and depending on where she buys the shoes from, should be able to get them there. Cheers, K

Hey Albert, a change of plans for tonight. Some of the guys will be starting at 7pm, not 8pm. I will get there for 7pm or soon after. Hope to see you there,


BCC Rides

Cycling in the summer can be about casual riding, sprinting, spinning, big-ring hammerfests or what ever your chosen type of riding is. The BCC was founded for the sole purpose to network cyclists. It has grown into a successful club which accommodates Riders at almost all skill/fitness levels. Everyone should be able to participate and have fun at their respective levels.


Weekend Rides: 


Saturday Morning
Start time is 8:00am early season, 7:00am as days get longer. Route distances vary from 55-120km and several pace groups are available. Saturday morning rides focus on a social vibe.


Sunrise Sundays
Rides will start around sunrise. Rotating routes will focus on distances from 100-160km. Once a month, a destination ride will be posted.

Weekly Rides:



Advanced Turbo Tuesdays
For this ride, advanced group riding and bike handling skills are required. You must also be aware of your limitations. Riding speed is 35-45kph.


Hillicious Thursdays
Starts at 5:40am. This ride includes Brimley repeats, a Beaches hill loop, and/or other local hills.



Starts at 6:30pm. Bring your CX or MTB out for a great Don trail ride. Some weeks, we'll head to a local park to practice CX skills.

Other Rides:



Unofficial Non-Club Rides
Use this group page to organize informal rides outside of the regularly scheduled BCC rides. Keep in mind that these rides will not have BCC insurance coverage.


West TO

Allowing west end BCC members who want to ride from High Park to plan/post ride details.
