Tour de Terra Cotta

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,…

Get well soon Alex!

Hey all,

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!

Panam Games Women's Road Race

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.

GIVE FEEDBACK ON PROPOSED BIKE ROUTES IN TORONTO!

Hey All,

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…

ANOTHER GREAT DAY ON THE BIKE! HOT AS H@#L!

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…

Milton Velodrome PanAm Games Video

Hi everyone,

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.

Enjoy!

Turbo Tuesday - July 14th 2015 - Soggy weather didn't stop the Wattbombs!

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.  

Cheers,

Dan.

This was us waiting for the Train that never…

Lake Simcoe... Living up to the Hype!

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…

We LOVE You KELD! Get Well soon!

Hey all,

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)…

O-Cup #6 KW Classic Road Race

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.

Me: "I assume you were going all out…

Triathlons - worth trying out

Hi Club,

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…

O-Cup #4 Niagara Classic Road Race

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…

Great Wall of China Half Marathon

Well, it is a bucket list experience and for our 25th anniversary Dianne booked us to take on the Great Wall while spending time in China. A tremendous experience. While there has been no cycling, there are certainly lots of bikes on the roads, lots of high end carbon fibre or knockoffs, who knows. In any event, if you are pondering this marathon/half marathon, it is a fantastic experience. Here is my race blog.



Race day starts at 3am with a wakeup call, so you can be on the bus for… Continue
