This year I have decided that I want to help out the club by leading a ride on Wednesday nights (Work-out Wednesdays) for anyone who is interested in getting faster. I have been training a lot over the winter and have amassed a (embarrassingly large) wealth of knowledge about training techniques and intervals. I wanted to create a night ride where people can all meet down in the portlands area (south end of Leslie) warm-up and warm down together and everyone can get…

So, when I decided to start the Tuesday Night Advanced Ride, I forgot that I was lacking my fitness from years past. Well, let's just leave it at that. Thanks to all for keeping me in for the duration.:-) Welcome to Rob and Braden.

Over the weekend Patryk, Jason S, and I attended the second O-cup race of the season in Calabogie. The race was a lot of fun as it was held on a closed course race track. It was my first ever mass start race, and aside from all the reading, watching pros and talking to others I have done, I had very little idea of what to expect. I had heard stories of crashes and was very nervous, and although assured by fellow members, it is very hard to believe your fitness is there…

So I started this club because I knew that days like this would be hard to get out and ride. But when I rolled into Grinder this morning, there were quite a few riders ready to take on whatever mother nature has to offer.
Warm welcome to the new members: Ivana, Braden, Andrew. Hope you all had a good ride. I took a couple pics, when I had the chance. Most of the ride it was either very windy, raining or snowing. But we all toughed it out and our group made it back safe. By the…Continue
The 20th annual P-A is in the books. Great weather for the event this year, 2,200 riders, nice tailwind, lots of mud! I saw many BCC riders on the course which was great! I had a bit of a mechanical challenge (front brake partly on the whole way, just what you want!) but still had a good time out there on the gravel. Race was well organized as usual and quick with winning times sub 1:45. I was impressed by the bike handling skills of the cyclocross racers as they flew through ankle deep…Continue
Bunch of us meet for 8AM. Split off into the respective pace groups. We seemed to all meet up at the Unionville Starbucks. Everyone seem happy. Hope you all had a pleasant ride. Looks like we're going to…Continue

Good luck to everyone riding P2A tomorrow!
Peter Sutton told me a story about losing (aka not being able to find) his shoe in the mud one year. So here's to everyone finishing with both shoes and accomplishing their goals for the race.
For the racers, ride hard, crush souls and stay safe
Have a great time out there!

Cycling Safety and Etiquette - ALL OF US: from seasoned racers to novice recreational riders, benefit from brushing up on our basics.
Helmets are MANDATORY.
Obey the rules of the road. Conduct yourself with the same consideration as you would expect from any other road user, particularly motorists. Aggressive behaviour and gestures by cyclists will alienate…
