Hot and Humid Hillicious Ride

Debut of the latest kits!

Pretty snazzy! 


Tonight's Polka Dot jersey goes to Jason Shuker, who just had to squeeze in that last climb.  Wasn't sure he'd be back up in time for our Tour de Scarborough, but somehow he made it!…

2013 Simcoe Report #1

So we had a few riders(30ish) decide to head up to Simcoe... most from Elgin and a few from the beach!

At the lake, I called a…

Thursday Hillicious Ride - Return to Brimley

Well, construction is finished on our usual hill, so back to Brimley we went!

Hope everyone had a good time - we had a large turnout, and it was nice to see that no one was taking it easy. Well, maybe Kirk, but he had a good reason (flat tire).  Great job everyone, but the King of the Mountains this week was definitely Paul M for…

Route maps and GPS computers

At one time or another, we have all arrived at the start of a ride without having looked at the route map.  It's not ideal, but we've all done it.  We all also know that, for many reasons, it’s better to have plan for getting out and back that is more sophisticated than blindly following the wheel in front of you.  A number of BCC members put a lot of time into scouting, planning and drawing the routes in tools like MapMyRide so that they are available to all.  Unless you’re already so…

0rw91xdeaul41 BCC at Road Race Provincials

Hey Everyone,

As you may or may not have heard, BCC was well represented last Sunday in the provincial road races up in Holland's Marsh. In the early races it was Jim W and Peter C holding it down with a solid 19th and 32nd respectively. I'd be really interested to hear about their ride and thoughts on the course. Our own Leslie H took silver in her race for her…
