Centurion Ellicottville

This really was quite a busy weekend for the BCC, as we were very well-represented at a few events!  Just wanted to share the ride that a few of us had down in Ellicottville for the Centurion. 

Some of our members participated in last year's Collingwood Centurion event, and this one was definately run in the same manner - very organized, well planned out and helped out in a big way by lots of incredible volunteers.

The group who decided to head south this weekend were Bob and…

Hairshirt 2012 - Mission Accomplished

Well, once again we decided to tackle the Hairshirt.  James had mentioned to us early in the year that he was thinking of doing it again and with the fun we had last year on the ride, we decided to go for it also.  As the day neared, we started to count up the number of long rides that we'd been on so far...needless to say the tally wasn't so great (especially for me), and if…

A link to the event is below.

Centurion Blue Mountain on TSN and TSN2

Just saw this posted on the Centurion site and thought I'd share:

 

Air dates have been announced for the 2011 Subaru Centurion Canada one-hour television show!

Here is the official word:

More cycling comes to TSN. Over 3,500 participants came to the Town of The Blue Mountains and the Niagara Escarpment to compete in the annual Subaru Centurion Canada event.

The Timex Vertical Challenge featured head to head knockout racing up the Niagara Escarpment, and…

Hairshirt 2011 - Now THAT was a long day in the saddle!

I remember the first time I saw an event post for this ride on the site.  I remember thinking "Holy crap that's an insane amount of riding!"  I remember thinking that there was no way I'd ever do something like that....then Thursday morning rolls around and I receive an email in my inbox from Steve with the subject line "IDEA"  All it said was "Toronto to Niagara and back.  One day.  You and me."  We kicked the idea around for a day, I emailed James to see what he thought, and the next thing…

BCC On Ice

Despite the cold temperatures and wind chill, a few brave souls turned out for what will hopefully be the first of many BCC Skate nights.  Evan, Trish, Jason, Ian, Steve and I braved the cold to come out for some ice time.  We followed it up with a short trip over to Stratengers for some yummy pizza and pitchers.

 

I'll be out next Friday with my boys for a short skate followed by a pizza outing.  Anyone who's interested, please come and join us.  Thinking that we'll aim to be…

BCC Skate Night?

So, winter's here.  The best way to get through it, besides riding a trainer, is to embrace it.  Thinking it would be fun to get together for a BCC Skate night.  The rink at Greenwood/Dundas in the park is divided in half, so shinny hockey can take place on the one side and free skating/pleasure skating can take place on the other.  It's a nice rink, and nothing beats getting outdoors on a nice winter night for a skate.  There's a lot of great spots along Queen St. which would serve well for…

Yet another Sweet Social Saturday!

Sorry for the delay in posting up the pictures from Saturday's ride. Despite the looming fog, a group of 13 of us showed up at Grinder for what turned out to be a very enjoyable and lovely Social Saturday. Thanks to Jeff and our other leaders for bringing us out to Pickering. The route along the bike path was beautiful and a great way to ride out. By the time we reached Frenchman's Bay, the sun had come out and burned off the fog, and it was just truly a beautiful morning. The ride both 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…

K-W Classic

Last season Jamie mentioned this O-Cup race to me as a good one to try for my first time out. I was riding in the RTCC the same weekend, so unable to try it, but did keep it in the back of my mind on a future "to do" list.

Fortunately this year my schedule was open on Sunday, so l made the decision late on Thursday to go for it, and registered to race. Felt exciting at first followed by a bit of a yikes as I realized what I had just done.

Alexx and I had…

Geez, 21k is far to go on two feet!

So I missed the ride to Goodwood this morning because my friend convinced me earlier this year that it would be fun to enter the Toronto Women's Half Marathon. Being easily distracted by bright, shiny objects (and the fact that they had mentioned the presence of both Firefighters AND Chocolate stations) I figured what the hell, and signed up. Good thing that I did, the 2000 spaces filled up rather quickly, as you can imagine.

I have had a love-hate relationship with running over the…

Sebring 12 Hour Race - A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words....

Ah, the internet is an amazing place! I happened to be wandering around the net and stumbled across the attached photo of a certain BCC rider during the recent Sebring 12 Hour race.....

James, tell us, was it the aerobars or sleeveless jersey that contributed to your success?

Congrats again, and how about updating your profile pic? ;)

Pitter Patter, Let's Get At 'Er!

Riders participating in this event ride as many miles as they can in 12 hours - a link below provides further details on the race itself and also on the RAAM qualifying 24 hour version which will be going on at the same time.…

Modified Zoo Loop....on four wheels

Today's mild and sunny weather seemed too perfect to pass up, so with the boys in tow, I headed to the zoo...in the car. As I left Grinder and drove along Kingston Rd. (and saw Trish out running) I started to think back about last season. The many Saturday mornings that started out just like that, cruising along Kingston, watching the sun rise, just enjoying being out on the open road.

I do have to admit that the hills ARE much easier in the car, especially the (H)Ellsmere climb when you… Continue

Guelph Lake 2 Tri- I'm Baaaaccckkkk!

Well, after battling this course in June under grey skies and rain, I figured what the hell, let's do it again! So I signed up for the Sprint Tri again, thinking that I've seen the water portion and made it through, so how bad could it be a second time around? Right??? This time the only difference in the course was that the bike portion is 10k longer and the run is 2k longer....so they've increased the stuff I like, and kept the swim part the same, which I figured worked for me. After the last… Continue

The Tour de Terra Cotta 108....Jamie made me do it! :)

Where to begin? I remember the first time I met Jamie, and rode with her. It was on a Saturday for the zoo loop and we ended up together in the paceline on the way out. We were chatting and she told me that I should try racing, I'd like it and it was a lot of fun. Didn't take much to pique my interest....I sat on the idea for awhile, got my new bike and then started to think about it some more. I mean, if it was FUN...what's the worst that could happen, right? So I went to the OCA site and… Continue
