I was going to put this in the forum, but thought it might see more traffic here…
I recently read this article by the Globe and Mail's Peter Cheney discussing the confusion over hand signals by those of us on two wheels. I am a strong proponent of his proposal. Discuss?
Wow. What a lovely ride today. Sure, it was a bit brisk first thing in the morning, and I am getting over a bad sinus cold, but lots of sunshine along with great company got me through to the coffee prize at the end. Thanks to Simon, Jon, John, Phallon, Brad, Scott, Marc, Jeff, Brad (there were 13 of us, but names are escaping me).
Our group rode very well together and…Continue
Thirteen of us decided to stick to an early Zoo Loop today. Despite our differing degrees of experience (Joe wanted an easy spin before winging off to France; Suzanne a very welcome and capable new BCCer) we stuck together like glue.
Thanks to Suzanne, Alexx, Melani, Heather, Brooke, Kara, Lynne Tatiana, Matt, Jeff, Mike, Joe for helping to start my first day of summer off perfectly. We…Continue
Hope I'm not stealing anyone's thunder, although there seems to be much rumbling today. I was just thinking about today's Lake of Bays Road Race, wondering how the troops faired. The BCC kicked some serious butt today, and Paul M won his particular race!
Congrats to everyone for going all the way up there to race in what…Continue
I just came across this little video in which some folks travelled all the way from Ottawa to the Forest City Velodrome. Made me want to get a group together to head down once again, say, in the new year.
Well, some of us started at Marie Curtis at 6:30, some of us began at Leslie & Lakeshore at 6:30, and one of us (Steve W.) even started at Leslie & Lakeshore at 5:30! Actually, I think Dave O. started out there too.
Our MC Park group was about 14 strong. Lets see who I can remember: Steve W., Dave O., Nick B., Brian M., Evan, Megan, Terry, Nick, Wayne, Brian W., a fellow I've never met wearing Enbridge jersey, Jason, Alexx and yours truly.…Continue
Our ride starting/ending at Elgin Mills was great! Pretty cold up there at 7am, but at our just north of 30k pace, I managed to warm up by the turn at Old Homestead! Two flats didn't slow us down too much, but we ended up scrubbing our time on those two Kennedy lumps just north of Aurora road when nearly squashed the little dude in the last pic in the reel below. Ended up stopping to help him to the other side of the road and (hopefully) to safety. Oh, and…Continue
Well, I guess it pays to check the site before heading out to a ride.
Picked up Marco and the two of us went down to the park to find…no one there! Oh well, we did some drills and rode around on Jamie's little course. The turning is getting easier, but I did manage to bin it on a dismount! Good news is it didn't rain at all, well until just now. It's raining buckets out there.
Here's our visual evidence. Till next week then!…Continue
Jon Spira and I were riding in the Don this early morning and made a little discovery:
You know the wooden train bridge just north of the molars, that is on the way to ET Seton, Sunnybrook and all the rest? Well, the wooden ramp on the west side of that bridge is basically out. We had to do a little cyclocross/portage toward the bottom and found equipment. When we were on our way back two workers told us no dice, and that the whole damn bridge will be out till November. We had to…Continue
All six of us slayed la bête, le géant de Provence, yesterday. Thought it only too appropriate to do it on a Hillicious Thursday, although to call Le Mont Ventoux a 'hill' tends to understate its hugeness. Here's some photo evidence……Continue
We proved we can do this thing without Dan! Here's a pic to prove it. Had to take three to get us all in, then piece them together.
I just read this entry on Red Kite Prayer and loved it. Thought it was worth putting up here.
Check it out...
