Ellicottville Cycling Weekend at Ellicottville, NY

June 6, 2014 to June 8, 2014
We saw this event being organized by the folks at Holiday Valley in Ellicottville, and thought we'd give it a go.  Looks good and if nothing else, is a nice change of scenery.  We rode the Ellicottville Centurion a couple of years ago and were really impressed by the riding that we experienced. Here are the event details…See More

Paris To Ancaster(P2A) - April 14th 2013 at Paris, Ontario

April 14, 2013 all day
Inspired by this classic race, the Paris to Ancaster has taken place for the past nineteen years over the roughest farm lanes, trails and gravel roads we can find. Combined with unpredictable spring weather and the largest field of riders assembled in Canada, it has become a classic race experience for everyone from average riders to Canadian Olympians. Join us on April 14, 2013 to become part of the history of this unique race.TO CELEBRATE OUR 20TH ANNUAL EVENT THE P2A IS NOW 70KM & THE…See More

"Congrats on a great ride Gordon!  Enjoyed your excellent reports. We do lack Mountains here that is true and the entire East coast lacks altitude.  Time to move? Well at least for part of the year anyway perhaps. Brian"

TransRockies 2012 -- Day 3 -- Final Stage of the TR3

Posted on July 31, 2012 at 2:44pm 4 Comments

We had another mass start this morning from where we ended the previous day at Fernie Alpine Resort.  Out of the gate, we were climbing, and it almost did not stop all day.  The first climb was a modest grade of 5-6% for about 30 minutes up a fire road to the top of the ski resort followed by a gnarly downhill before a very steep climb to the highest point for the day.  A long decent into the valley, creek crossings and then back up and around the final ridge and peak followed, where we…

TransRockies 2012 -- Day 2

Posted on July 29, 2012 at 11:17pm 2 Comments

A mass start this morning welcomed all riders, though some found the adventure of Day 1 too much and opted out from continuing (apparently this happens every year).  The peloton was escorted out of the town of Fernie by an antique fire truck for the first 1.5km along the highway to the power line road, the…

TransRockies 2012 -- Day 1 -- Fernie Time Trial

Posted on July 28, 2012 at 11:07pm 3 Comments

Well I am humbled.  Having ridden single mountain track in Chamonix, Zermatt, Whistler, Colorado and Mt. Tremblant, I thought that I had encountered tough climbs before, but Fernie has some of the most technical climbs (and descents) that I have encountered anywhere.  What differentiates it?  Roots.  They are everywhere.  They almost seem to jump out at you, especially around switchbacks.  Anyway, in keeping with TransRockies tradition, today’s stage was a time trail to basically “set the…

TransRockies 2012 -- Pre-Race Day

Posted on July 27, 2012 at 11:56pm 6 Comments

Well I am here in Fernie, B.C. still questioning what I am doing.  Coming from that mountain biking Mecca of Toronto, am I prepared for a three-day mountain biking stage race that has 4,900 metres of elevation gain over 92 km that includes 79% trail riding, with 58% single track to boot?   After months of multiple hill repeats on Brimley, the Bayview Extension, Loblaws Hill, “Hospital” Hill behind Sunnybrook, complemented by umpteen laps of the Don, Albion Hills, and Hardwood Hills, I guess…

Gord, are you planning on racing this summer? I presume that given the sponsorship, you will want to wear the colours. What races had you planned to enter?
