Hooray CX season is here!

Marko Li, Paul McKeever, Bruce Day, Jeff Norman, Mike McInnis, Jeff McCachren, CS boys Mike Nyby and Jake Williams plus a few old friends.
This course is…Continue
I had a good race at Terra Cotta: 2nd place finish in the age 50-59 group and 9th overall.
As I did last year, I registered in the beginners' race again, which is only 26 km, consisting of three loops of a rectangular course on closed roads. I found the field was much stronger this year, with 10 riders from Kurzawinski and several from Morning Glory,…Continue
Unfortunately, Alex had a little crash and broke his clavicle at Terra Cotta on Monday. From what I was told, he was taken out by another rider not holding their line in the corner. We wish him a speedy recovery!
Thanks to all that were able to make it to the BCC Mid Season Social Ride/Ride for Christian.
Despite the heat, it was a great to day to on the bike and ride with other cyclists in the community for good cause. We were able to meet and ride with members from B1 EvO and TCRBC. Also had some Elite riders come out to…Continue
I decided to take in the free viewing of the road race with my kids today at High Park and am very glad I did. An excellent race (from our limited glimpses) with Canada taking the gold and overall controlling the race. I've posted a few pictures here but don't want to take up all the bandwidth so the rest of them are up on my Flickr if anyone is interested in a few of the sights.
Public Flickr album:…Continue
Been brought to my attention by a couple club members.
I know many of you will have seen this, but I have just done the survey and it is quite comprehensive. Wouldn't it be lovely for us to have a safe route out east on Kingston for instance?!
Fill in the survey…

It was no surprise that it was going to be a really hot and humid day, however, many showed up for the ride. Some riders coming from the beach which would add another 60kms to their ride as the remote start was at Elgin and Leslie. Many bottle of water and steady speeds allowed us to all finish the ride safely and log the mileage we all wanted out of the day. Lots…Continue
I cobbled together a little PanAm video from the Milton Velodrome. It's the Men's Team Sprint Final with Canada winning the Gold!
Very nice facility. Can't wait until BCC's Track group goes back.

Last Nights ride was pretty great. Well attended, despite the call for passing showers which did happen. Corners were a little slower, but still the average speed for the ride was over 32KPH. Thanks everyone for coming out, jamming hard, and dropping all the #wattbombs.
This was us waiting for the Train that never…Continue
So what is so great about the Lake Simcoe Ride? Well, just look at the collage above! The roads are smooth, there are not stops for km's on end, and well the break stop is bliss! Coffee and pastries are scrumptious! Thanks for the pics Dru! Sorry for the delayed…Continue

Great cycling article in the Wall Street Journal - 'The Madness of Descent' - a couple of days ago. See the link below...
How about backwards downhill, front wheel, feet off the pedals!
Vittorio Brumotti is unbelievable.
Ok so I saw Simon's Instagram this morning that the boys were going to do a 200Km day to Collingwood and I thought AWESOME!
I was surprised to get a message from an old friend Matt Wallis who is now a fire fighter with a picture of a busted up bike. Pic Matt sent me from the fire truck(Above)…Continue
Another successful year with this initiative. Thanks to all that came out to help out with the event. Turns out it was super fun, and most importantly we were able to help prepare the kids for the race in September.
Thanks to Sandra for helping liaison with the Event co-ordinators.
Please take the time to share your…Continue
A group of BCC'ers came out to our Social Saturday Evening Ride. There were no speed groups, the Route was not really determined. Complete opposite of our morning club rides. There was lots of food, and drinks:-)
If you missed this one... we will have another one soon!
Thanks Linda for helping to set things…Continue

Bloody Steve Jones. His last lap breakaway was looking so promising to take the win with an 7km solo effort that watching from behind I was already excitedly planning on how I would tell his tale of derring-do on this blog. But sadly he didn't win and was caught agonizingly close with only 500m to go.
Post Race Debrief...
Me: "I assume you were going all out…Continue
Fair warning - I laid out the topic in the title - this involves something beyond just cycling :). So although this is a cycling club, since there are so many people who chose to be active (and social!) I wanted to put this up while I'm still on the high from finishing the event today.
What I want to do is to lay out a quick case why most…Continue
Whereas O-Cup Calabogie was a non-stop hammerfest at warp speed 10 from start to finish, and served merely to pass the time until, John "Leg Day" Lobraico activated his overdeveloped quadriceps to sprint to victory, the Niagara Classic was a proper bicycle race. We had every element that one likes to see on the UCI World Tour races that you illegally stream onto your…Continue
