KW Classic M3 Provincials: Not every report has a storybook ending

Posted on June 5, 2017 at 9:30am 1 Comment

The short version is that our goal going in was to get Simon as close to the top step as possible, with Luke and I aiming for reasonable placings as secondary goals.  The end result was a 16th for Simon and DNF’s for both Luke and I.  A poor tally, and one that came at a high cost.

The route they used for KW Classic should have been a great one, both for our strengths as well as general enjoyment of riding.  It is a 12.5 km loop of rolling hills, with one moderately…

Posted on May 23, 2017 at 8:30am 3 Comments

The BCC colours were well represented on Saturday in Niagara, with Simon, Luke and I (James) racing in the M3 category.   Simon and I wrote up our viewpoints of the race and Luke located a video from one of the MGCC riders that does a great job of capturing us on camera.  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!…

Heading into the "off-season" - inside options

Posted on October 14, 2016 at 8:48am 5 Comments

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…
