Another Thursday Hillicious Ride Completed

Great to see everyone out tonight!  We had a nice little group of regulars as well as some new faces.

 

 

A touch on the cool side tonight, but we really needed nothing more than arm warmers - and really only on the return trip to Gerrard and Main - hill reps certainly warm you up!!!

 

Tonight's KOM award has to go to Patryk - he set (and maintained) a pretty torrid pace up Brimley, and managed to gap Charles, Steve J, and myself up the…

Hot and Humid Hillicious Ride

Wow - just a little on the muggy side tonight.  Still, it's always nice to get out and shake out the legs with a bunch of Brimley repeats, a leg-buster run up Meadowcliffe, and finally the return sprint.

 

 

Great to see everyone out and working on their climbing skills.  Also nice to see Jamie's new TT toy - boy, did she ever put the hurt to us tonight on the…

Niagara Classic - Race Report

A number of BCC riders were off to Pelham today to race the Niagara Classic Road Race.  This is the race that features the infamous Effingham Hill - a very aptly named climb for many reasons (and only one of those reasons is because the hill is on Effingham Street).

 

 

Peter Cahill, myself, and Jim Weir suited up for BCC, and were assigned race bids numbers 1, 2, and 3, respectively.  A good omen, but while we all had a decent race (essentially…

A well-attended hillicious event...

Fairly large crowd this week - thanks for showing up. Even have a few pics from Beer Night!

 

A few climbs up Brimley - practice for this weekend's race up Effingham Hill - followed by a quick jaunt down and then up Meadowcliffe.  The sprint... well, I overplayed my hand this week.  Jeff and I had some pretty long pulls along Kingston, and my solo break fell apart about 400 m short once I'd burned out my afterburners.  Mohamed and Steve J blew by me like I…

Windy Thursday Hill Climbs

Small turnout this week - must have been the nasty cross-winds/headwinds! 

 

 

Thanks to Marc, Josh, Leslie (sorry - no pictures; they all looked like crap!), David (again - no pictures!), Mohamed, and Steve J. for joining me on tonight's ride.  First trip up and down Meadowcliff - still beautiful down there, but the climb back up hurts like a mother....

The Kingston-Danforth sprint really fizzled this week - I was firing on all cylinders and…
