Saturday is Stage 8 of the Giro. It's an individual time trial that runs from Gabicce Monte to Saltara. Unfortunately, I'll be arriving the following week. We're staying at the Belvedere Hotel in Riccione, which is about 10 kms to the north.

CBC Poll - Athlete of the Year

CBC has a poll for Athlete of the Year.  I cast my vote for the winner of the Giro d'Italia (who is currently trailing Christine Sinclair).

Nove Colli 2013

Posted on October 17, 2012 at 3:03pm 3 Comments

In case you're thinking of a bike vacation in Italy ...

Below is an email from the Hotel Belvedere in Riccione, featuring the 2013 Nove Colli.  This Gran Fondo takes place in May but the hotel needs a confirmation and deposit by the end of October.  They take care of registration, transportation to and from the start, pasta and drinks at the finish.

I'm planning on going back in May 2013 for the 5th year in a row. 

It's a great cycling vacation in the Emilia-Romagna…

Nove Colli

Posted on May 24, 2010 at 7:33pm 4 Comments

Hi All ... I'm on a cycling holiday in Riccione, Italy.

On Sunday, our group of about 15 from Toronto joined 12,000 others to ride in the Gran Fondo Nove Colli.

The 135 km short course includes 4 major climbs. They are each about 7 kms long, with 5% average gradient and a maximum 18% gradient.

Our times ranged from 5 hours to 8 hours. I came in at 7 hours and 14 minutes, but the total ride time on my computer was just over 6 hours. I stopped at…

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.

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