A nice little post I found...

Hell of the North

So, no pictures to go with this report, sorry. But who (other than maybe Peter Sutton) could hold on to a camera over this terrain anyway!

It was a great day on the bike. Alex S., Jorge C. (DH) and I got up early and piled into the truck fully expecting to arrive early for the start, turns out we made it up to Cedar Beach Resort on the north shore of Musselman's Lake in record time and just hung out getting cold for an hour and a half... About 60 people finally showed up for the…

Super Soggy, Foggy, just plain ol Cold Saturday Ride & Good luck to the Riders Doing "Hell of the North"!

So I figured I'd show up to Grinder to see if there are other hardcore riders, and sure enough, there were.  I think it was six in total.  Got to the point where we all mutually decided it was just to cold and really couldn't see in front of us, and headed back.  All in all, glad I made it out for the pre-ride :-)  Till Sunday... 

 

BTW, Good luck to the riders doing"Hell of the North".  I think it's Dru…

Hey All,

6 keen souls brave the wind and snow!

Alan, Bob, Christian, Peter, Scott and I carried the BCC flag up Warden.  Welcome back to Alan, and nice to meet you Bob.   After a send off from Evan, Dan and Lana, who chose warm coffee instead of the ride, we headed N up Warden.  The road started dry, light snow flurries but not enough to even dampen the road.  By the 401 a little dampness on the road, by 14th ave, snowing…

10 Weeks and a Day

It was just over 6 months ago that I set my sights on Ironman France. Now time is passing rapidly as I look at only 2.5 months left until race day. Training has continued to be solid although it is always difficult to figure out exactly where you are without having any races to benchmark. If New Orleans is any indication, I am behind on running  relative to 2009 IM Canada, when I set my PB marathon in Mississauga.  Yet from a training perspective, I am feeling stronger on the run than I ever…
