Rider Responsibilities - Please Read and Comment

I realize that I have asked you all in the profile questions if you have read the rider's notes, however, I thought it would be best for me to help clarify by defining the responsibilities of riders in a group.  Basically taking all the riders notes and applying it to Club Rides.  

I think this will really help our club be safe and ultimately result in the enjoyment for all riders. Let me know what you think.

To Wheels Epic Sports Performance BCC hits up O-Cup#3 - Springbank Crit!

JRod, Mouckie and I spent the night in London so that we could be relaxed and ready well ahead of the early race start times. Unfortunately, we arrived too late to check anything out which was a shame because it was my first time in London. Hopefully I'll have another chance to check it out in the future! Strangely, the downtown area seemed very quiet when we…

Congrats to everyone for going all the way up there to race in what…

BCC makes its presence felt at Sebring

12 Hour Bike Race at Sebring - Feb 16, 2013

Well, the morning after the night before and everything feels relatively good all things considered. There was no crying like a baby yesterday despite an unrelenting wind that seem to buffet us in most directions and despite the unflorida like temperatures, there were no rains and enough sun to give our pale winter white skin a sunburn. So all good. In terms of the results, they can be found below. BCC put up a good showing, with 3 top 10… Continue

One week to go till rubber hits the road

Well following about 6 months of training the tour of California is looming large in my week ahead. Within the week i will be in the saddle trying to grind through the most epic physical experience i have faced. I keep reflecting on whether i have created enough resources to deal with the incessant climbing day after day. I can only hope that a watt is a watt is a watt and that whether i am climbing or riding a flat my increased watt output will carry me to the finish line. 

This past…
