Which Road O-Cup’s should people do next year? (My rookie* season in review)

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…

Blue Mountain Adventure 2017

 

It was a dark and stormy Thursday morning when a van pulled up in front of my house, two guys jumped out, grabbed my bike and luggage and suddenly I was seated in the back seat of the van, my bike on the roof and I was taken to a local coffee shop, the Birchcliff, where we met up with some others with bike mounted on the roof or in the back seat of vehicles. This looked ominous, until I realized it was fellow members of the Beaches Cycling Club and my imagination was…

BCC Youth at Joyride 150

Lots of fun for BCC Youth (and a couple of "youth at heart") on Friday!  Facility is Joyride150 in Markham. Amazingly fun place to hang with your kids (or without them!)  Here's a quick video with some highlights...

2 links inserted below (sorry- this is published on YouTube and for some reason some mobile devices seem to be having issues with it.)  Seems ok on PC's...

TRAIN TRACKS

Coming south on 9th Line from Stouffville there are some train tracks at an angle across the road. Today 3  or 4 riders in our group went down on them. Luckily it was mostly road rash and a broken top tube - it could have been much worse. So, be careful crossing these or any angled train tracks - don't be careless around them.

Ultimate "skills" session! Joyride 150 (Markham)- Friday, June 9 (10am-2pm)

Hi all-

 

We're planning a special event for this Friday, June 9.  (The fact that it's a PA day for TDSB kids is an added bonus!)  The plan is to meet at Joyride 150 in Markham (Link below) at 10am.  Joyride is an indoor bike “playground” that will allow us all to build some new skills, and much more importantly, it should be insanely  fun!  

Any bikes are allowed, but Mountain or BMX are recommended.  We are planning to get a group rate for 3 hours (between 10:30am and…

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

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…
