A little bit of colour on an otherwise grey day!

Cue: Random green workout ball on the trail... 

Don MTB Trail shenanigans...

Posted on January 6, 2013 at 3:31pm 8 Comments

Hey All,

Not sure if anyone recalls but a year or two back someone was sabotaging MTB bridges on the Don trails. Well, I encountered something less dangerous but a notable nuisance all the same. I figured I'd put it out there...
I was…

Well, my ride ended like this today, calling in the cavalry! How was Simcoe for everyone else?

Major Mac to Kleinburg + Loop

Posted on June 10, 2012 at 5:12pm 6 Comments

Hey, where was everybody? I waited at Major Mac and Leslie until 7:40 and figured either everybody took a different route or something! Anyway, it was probably just as well I did the loop alone, no one was there to hear my darn bike creaking! It's driving me nuts and I can't figure out where it's coming from. These darn carbon bikes (whine, whine) are like guitars, they resonate with every little noise!

Saturday Zoo / Stouffville

Posted on May 27, 2012 at 1:30pm 4 Comments

Hey, hope everyone had a good Saturday ride...

I rode with quite a group up to Stouffville and back. The pace seemed pretty fast! I'm used to Saturdays having the odd push here and there but there just didn't seem to be much letting up! Next time, I'll be looking to take it a bit easier!

Anyway, how did everyone else' ride go?

Thanks Dru, Ironman is tough, but the scenery eases the pain. If only we could move the mountain landscape to ontario, oh what rides we could have.
 
 
 

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

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.

Sunday

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:

 

Tuesday

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.

Thursday

Hillicious Thursdays
Starts at 5:30am. This ride includes Brimley repeats, a Beaches hill loop, and/or other local hills.

Thursday#2
