Muggy Thursday Night

A very, very humid evening - perfect for Brimley hill repeats, followed by quick dashes down (and up, of course) Meadowcliffe and Bethune. 

 

 

Quote of the night:  "Ouch.  Now I know why you call these rides…

You drank how much water ?!?

Poor attendance for the Monday MTB ride, but it was stinking hot, hot, hot.  Guess some people have more sense than others.. 

 

Over my 1h 10min ride, I drank all the water in my 2L Camelbak and a 24oz bottle.  And even more when I staggered through the door at home.

Hillicious Ride #11

What a beautiful summer evening!  Perfect time to go and hurt oneself on the hills...  A few pictures of the group are below - some latecomers missed the photo ops, unfortunately.  (Yep, 6:30pm rolling start means we leave at 6:30pm!)

Marvellous Monday Night MTB Ride!

The daytime heat noticeable abated during our regular Monday night MTB ride.  Thanks to Jeff, Trish, and Roger for joining me.

 

 

Finally figured (sort of) what I've been doing wrong with the GoPro camera.  Turns out, my SD card was not rated "high" enough - whatever that means - to take video.  I stuck to picture mode this week, however, I've got a new SD card and will try to figure everything out to grab some video next week.

Mr. Fantastic makes a splash at the 2011 Canadian Road National Championship race!

One hundred and thirty four Master B (40 - 49 year old) racers lined up on Sunday afternoon to vie for the 2011 National Master road race championship on an incredibly hot and sunny Burlington course. 

 

BCC was represented by three riders - myself, Peter Skalenda, and Steve Fantaske.  The race would prove to be incredibly gruelling, at a distance of 113 km with over 1100 m of climbing.  Add in temperatures well over 30 degrees (with a humidex pushing close to…

Hillicious Ride No. 9 - was it just me, or did someone make them steeper this week?
