Just a heads up for anyone looking for some entertainment post their Saturday ride that there will be a series of races going on over at Ossington Ave. until ~2pm. There are (hopefully) a few…Continue
Hi all,Hoping someone with more bike tech knowledge than me can help out here. I am considering moving my CX bike (Steeple X) crankset to a Shimano based one (105 or Ultegra) so that I can swap my…Continue

I wanted to do a quick summary of my first road season now, as it is clear that I won’t be able to attend either of the Kitchener crits or Bike the Bruce. Too bad as I was really hoping I could swing both of the criteriums, but such is life.
My main goal of this write-up is to encourage anyone who’s considered racing in the past to seriously consider coming out to a race or two (or four, or five…) next year to give it a go, and which races you might want to consider to start off…Continue

At the end you'll find a selection of pictures we've picked up from the photographers there - with a bit of description of the situation. Enjoy!…Continue
I have to use quotes for "off-season" because many of us will continue to ride outside for quite some time if this fall/winter turns out anything like last year. However, we are dealing with less sunlight and the weather may not cooperate as much, making those outside rides tough to schedule and stick to. But we still want to improve our power/skills and enjoy the camaraderie that we've built up over the spring and summer. That's where the trainer comes in, and love it or hate it - many…Continue
