Bonne chance to a home town pro

Normally I'd throw something like this up on Forum, but I think Blog Posts gets more traffic, so check it out.

BCC represents at Albion Hills for the 24hours of Summer Solstice!

What do you know, I am at the start line of this 24hour mountain bike relay race, amongst 300 people, I look around, and beside me is a guy looking sharp in a BCC jersey! Trevor Doyle was there doing a 2 person relay as well!

Congratulations to Trevor and his partner, they had an excellent race and placed third with 18 laps!

The course was rolling terrain with a mix of double track compacted trails, and mucky, twisty, energy sapping single track. My partner had to be…

Patryk Biegalski Welland Half Iron "Fun"

Jodie and I were the only BCCers in this race with Brooke cheering and working the camera (thanks sweetie). This was a largely flat race with a two kilometre swim in the Welland canal, a 90k out and back ride, and a 21k run along the paths beside the canal.

Jodie's race was going great through the swim and bike. He came out of the water in…

Rainy Hairshirt Double Century

So... not too sure what happened to the other BCCers who said they were going to come out for the double century hairshirt classic yesterday, but you missed an interesting ride. For the most part, the day was actually pretty nice for riding - got a little steamy over the lunch hour but not too bad. I hooked up with three folks from Butterfield & Robinson - a company that plans cycling trips around the world - which is kind of cool, and we kept a pretty decent pace for the ride, finishing…

MTB Mondays - Better Late Than Never...

Another fine Monday night of mountain biking with the regulars... and Thi, who we hope is a regular after 2 weeks now!



The posse consisted of Jeff, Mel (who experienced work-guilt and had to go home and work half an hour into the ride :( ), Robert, Charlotte, Evan "Grizzly Adams" Glazier (who did his own bike repairs with a stick), Thi, Trish, and My own self.



We did many of the usual trails, and a couple of new ones. The braver folks did some riding over wooden bridges and… Continue

What's with mean cyclists?

Trish and I went out today at 6am and did the Pickering route - gorgeous, and I don't think we saw another soul until we reached the end point at Frenchman's Bay - lots of critters and bunnies though. We had a wonderful ride.



On our way back, we came through the Guild, and passed a group of a dozen cyclists stopped at the plaza in the guild (Various jerseys, including one Dark Horse Flyers and one Jet Feul Jersey). We waved and called out "Good Morning"... we got one slightly raised… Continue

Patryk Biegalski Guelph Lake Olympic Triathlon Race Report

First of all, congrats to all the BCCers who competed at Guelph over the weekend. Jodie had a rough swim but busted out a really impressive ride in extremely windy conditions and ended up 9th out of 76 men in his age group. I guess the new bike fit and all that riding with the BCC is really paying dividends. Great job Jodie. Matt Leitch ended up in the top third of his age group as well with a strong performance. Henna, thanks for the cheers. Sorry I didn't get any photos of you guys after…

Another Excellent MTB Monday

It was a small group tonight, but fun! Jeff led the parade, with Mel, Me and newcomers Liz and Thi.



We did some skills, including the first stab at bunny hopping (which it turned out that we needed - we forgot to cover the part about when you bunny hop the log and land in the mudpile on the other side though...). Liz and Thi kept up like pros, though and they didn't miss a beat! Great job, you guys! Hope you had a fabulous time, and we hope to see you again next week! Thi, maybe you… Continue

K-W Classic

Last season Jamie mentioned this O-Cup race to me as a good one to try for my first time out. I was riding in the RTCC the same weekend, so unable to try it, but did keep it in the back of my mind on a future "to do" list.

Fortunately this year my schedule was open on Sunday, so l made the decision late on Thursday to go for it, and registered to race. Felt exciting at first followed by a bit of a yikes as I realized what I had just done.

Alexx and I had…

Kitchener Waterloo Classic - A great day of racing!



Today was fun! And for the most part, a good safe race for all. Here's the condensed highlights:



Kerri tried her first O-Cup race and went out with the intention of trying to hang on at the back of the ladies' peloton... Kerri, 4th place is NOT hanging on. Just think: you could have had third place had you realized that the dingling bell meant that it was the last lap! I'll let you tell the story...



Emile snuck to the front, and then did the most… Continue
