Midnight Monday MTB Madness

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...…

Patryk Biegalski Great BCC Turnout at the Triathlon Provincial Championships

Teresa Says "Hi" To Everyone!

Hey all,

I was downtown on an appointment and met up with Lana for lunch. Teresa spotted the BCC stickers and came over to say "Hi!". I told her I would post the pic as proof I actually saw her now that she's a westender. As soon as she gets a bike, expect to see her back.

Over and out.

Tour for Kids 2010 - What an Experience!

This past weekend several BCCers were involved in what can only be described as an incredibly moving and worthwhile cause. 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…

Rain rain went away, 5 of us came out to play

Yesterday the mountain bike mondayers had another fun night on the trails. The rain stopped, the trails were damp but not slick, so riding was great. Lisa, Reg, Tim, Thi and I rode the Seaton woods and the trail by the Don, played in the bmx bumps, up the hill to Loblaws, then home. Lights were turned on on the way back from Loblaws. I like riding with lights, a line of riders illuminating the trail and the blinking red tails lights is quite a sight, kind of like a dragon at a festival. So…

Patryk Biegalski Awesome Race in Orillia (Brooke rocks her first Sprint Tri)

Well, I didn't win this one, but I'm really pleased with my results. I was sixth overall, first in my age group, and I beat several guys I have never beaten before. With several big time pros on the start line a win was unrealistic,…

Family Circus

For those of you who have appreciated the comic strip "Family Circus" you can well appreciate the following two links. If you haven't seen this comic strip, feel free to go to the next blog entry.

Now, I am convinced that my Garmin 310xt isn't entirely accurate when it is under water but I am also convinced that my sense of direction is a bit off when it comes to swimming. I just didn't think i was this bad.

Thank goodness I know how to…

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.
