Steve Fantaske, Peter Skalenda and I will be lining up on Sunday (July 3) for the National Masters Road Race championship in Burlington.
The Masters Men race starts at 1:00pm, and it is going to be tough, tough, tough: over ten laps, we'll travel 113km and climb over 1,100m !
We'd love to see a good BCC crowd come out and…Continue
Much of ths week's ride was done in the company of, well, no one.
We started off with a pretty low turnout - myself, Alex, and Jeff. Jeff was pretty tired from competing in this weekend's 24 hour race and left for home soon after arriving. As usual, Alex was game for just about anything, and the two of us set out at a pretty decent pace.
Alex comes straight from work, however, and he's a cycling commuter. As one can see from the…Continue

Thanks to Mohamed, Steve, and Dave for risking the rain! Paul - you chickened out needlessly! But thanks for sending me a message so I knew you weren't coming. Sorry about the name-calling... :)
Despite a pretty iffy weather forecast, we had a beautiful evening for the weekly Brimley torture session. Check out the blue sky in the…Continue
The "breeze" certainly cleared out the lingering humidity - by the end of the ride I was actually finding it a bit chilly!
Welcome to Aaron and Adrian - out for their very first set of Brimley repeats. Another evening of headwinds on the climbs, but nothing like Wednesday night (fortunately!). We saw a lot of downed trees, and it was pretty obvious that there had been a number of limbs across Brimley. Fortunately, it had all been cleaned up by…Continue

A limited number of photos from Monday night - I blame it on lingering exhaustion from Sunday's Ride for Heart speed-fest.
Anyway, it was a lovely sunny day to hit the Don River trails and despite Saturday's rain, the trails were generally dry. This week featured a nice mix of intermediate to advanced trail, and it almost seemed like we had…Continue
Sorry, folks - no pictures. This ride was WAY too fast for that, even for me.
Peter Skalenda and I arrived at the CNE at 5:30, just seconds before they opened the gate for the 75 km riders. This let us get to the very front of the group.
For those of you who didn't know, every year the lead 75 km group gets a police escort - it's not needed on the initial loop, but the police will clear the way for the second loop so that the lead group doesn't get held up…Continue
Finally, a nice, sunny Thursday evening for some leg-bursting hill repeats.
A brisk headwind made the climbs on Brimley a little tougher than normal, and the final sprint on Kingston Road was tough, tough, tough - I figured I was gonna get dropped when the tri-guys (qb, Patryk, and James) made the most of their aero advantage (superior power had NOTHING to do with it, right guys?), but my sacrifices to the traffic light gods have been paying…Continue
