2013 Bianchi Infinito frame for sale - 53cm

My friend Colin bought a beautiful Bianchi Infinito frame last summer with the intention of building it up. He didn't, and I convinced hi that such a gorgeous bike needed to be ridden, not stored! It used to be owned by Jordan K who is a bike mechanic and kept it in top form. Jordan assures me that it was never in any kind of accident and that it is in top form. Colin is asking $950 for the frame. You can email him directly at cw.in.9080@gmail.com .Here are some photos:…See More

A driving instructor & a cycle trainer explain why cyclists ride in the middle of the road

"This is excellent. If only all drivers (and cyclists) could adopt this calm, unemotional, practical attitude when driving. Roads are for all "road users" - we are simply another "road user". I like the part that explains why the…"

BCC Represents at Blue Mountains Centurion 2013

Posted on September 16, 2013 at 11:30pm 18 Comments

The BCC was well-represented at the Blue Mountains Centurion this year! A fantastic time was had by all, and a lot of firsts and personal bests were won. From the outstanding finish of Paul M., to the first-time rides by Trish N. and Ivana, I think that people reached their goals and even surprised themselves!

BCC Women's Rapha 100 - a fantastic success!!!

Posted on July 8, 2013 at 12:00pm 14 Comments

Despite the rain, I think that this was one of my favourite rides ever! I read about the Rapha Women's 100 ride on the Rapha website and thought that this would be the perfect event to get a bunch of BCC ladies out to ride together on our own. Of course, when I woke up and it was raining, I figured it would only be a couple of us (who had made a blood pact to show up rain or shine) slogging it out in the rain, whining the whole way,... boy, was I surprised when 10 women…

Jason's Excellent Informal Pickering Route

Posted on September 3, 2012 at 3:07pm 4 Comments



So, Jason organized this super-fun excellent ride to Pickering, and 9 people showed up: Jason, Neil, Laura, Leigh, Maarten, Marc, Dave Adams, Andre and Me. Andre rode to Lawrence and Beechgrove then took off for his own ride. We went through a bunch of little paths (that would've been sketchy with a large group, but were perfect for a small group). I'd never been that way before! Everyone had a nice chat, and the ride along the Lakeshore was…

Fabulous Sunday Goodwood ride

Posted on August 13, 2012 at 9:35pm 4 Comments

Sorry, no pictures.

What a lovely day - great weather, great riding. The butter tarts were delicious, as always. Much better coffee at Anina's this year with the new machine! Nice to see Mike Hingert and his vintage Austin Healey  Sprite up at the coffee shop. A terrific group of people turned out for the ride, and the groups seemed to separate naturally and ride very well well together. Seemed like a good time was had by all. Jeff, great route variation on the way…

Thanks for the b-day wishes. By the way, kudos to Paul on the new kit it looks very cool. I have to say that I have been on a number tours and have seen the kit from a number of clubs but I have to say ours is the best.
