Well, not actually "midnight", but it did get really, really dark!
Tim and I stayed out way past the street lights coming on (yup, I got in trouble for that, too!). We had a ton of fun, but for some reason the video of our night ride just makes it seem like we got stuck in a really bad Blair Witch Project remake...…Continue
It was nice to show up for a race and be one of five BCCers on the start line. I knew that Jessica would be there but it was a pleasant surprise to see Nick, Terri, and Joyce competing as well.
The venue for this year’s Provincial Championships was Cobourg which is distinguished by…Continue

August 19 to 22nd marked the 7th annual Tour for Kids, a charity bike event whose focus is on supporting three amazing camps that provide support and programming for children and families whose lives have been impacted by childhood cancer.
Even as I type this blog, I am getting goosebumps just remembering some of the stories shared by both childhood cancer…Continue

So my friend Bob Tavener got the chance and went to race the Leadville 100. Altitude(Heartrate 20% higher than normal)...Terrain...Weather...So Many variables...Spoke with Bob and he mentioned there were climbs for 45mins to an hour with seemingly no end! He got there a week ahead and was training in altitude simulations at 10,000ft. Results below:
Sorry no photos, you'll just have to imagine how great we looked.
We missed you Alexx, Alex, Jamie and Peter! Welcome to Lisa on her first ride with us.
It was a nice evening, perfect temperature and great trail conditions led to fun on the trails on both sides of the DVP. Tim, Trish, Thi, Reg, Melani, me and Lisa started at Taylor Creek and worked our way to Seaton woods on this side of the DVP. Trish and Mel decide to head back early and the rest of us carried on over to the…Continue
