Thursday Hillicious Ride: Look, Ma - no rain!

Well, the precipitation failed to materialize but the threat of rain seems to have driven away the crowds this week.

 

 

Mohamed Eltorki and Alex Herceq met me at the designated start point and we rolled over to Brimley where Dave Shedd joined us.  Brimley may not quite measure up to Mt. Ventoux, but there are still some 13% grade sections that will get the legs burning (at least for a short period). 

 

After a few trips up and down…

Birthday Hillicious Ride!

Nice to see everyone out!  The forecasted rain never really materialized, so we had a lovely time on the hills!

 

And yes, it really was my birthday.  My present?  A brand new Garmin Edge 500 computer.  And boy, can it do some neat stuff!

Sprint points this week to Jamie - though I think the TT bike may be a bit of an unfair…

Race Report - Jim Weir takes 11th at 2012 Ontario Provinicial Championship Road Race!!!

A big congratulations to Jim Weir for taking 11th place in the Master B 2012 Ontario Provinicial Championship Road Race on Sunday!

Jim lined up along with Quentin Broad and myself for what promised to be a fairly epic road race - long, fast straight-aways; a long slightly twisty 2 km descent; some small rolling hills; and a long grinder of a…

Another Hot 'N Humid Hillicious ride...

Well, it wasn't quite as bad as the two previous weeks, but it certainly was hard, hard work tonight!

 

 

Smaller crowd, as some of our regulars are racing in BC and…

Whitby Wrangler all wrapped up...

Sorry, no pictures this week (forgot my camera). 

 

Another super speedy Sunday ride this week.  Unlike last week, however, the 100 km group elected to let the 120 km group start ahead of them; no pressure to try and keep pace, I guess. 

 

I have no data, stats or anything else, since my fabulous 1990's technology bike computer is on the fritz.  It did make lots of random beeping noises, though, so that was sorta entertaining.  Might be time for an upgrade -…

Hot and Humid Hillicious Ride... #2!

Wow, and I thought last week was a sweat-fest!

 

 

Pretty decent crowd this week, but it was quite the scorcher this evening, too.  The best part of my night (besides standing in the sprinkler when I got home) was the descents - no pedaling, and the the breeze at 50+ km/h was really quite cooling.

 

We had some pretty amazing climbing going on, and we actually stayed at Brimley until 7:30pm or so.  Admittedly, our departure was delayed…

Super Speedy Sunday Ride - Happy Canada Day!

A relatively small group of 15 or so riders gathered at Grinder for an early eastern adventure. 

 

 

The initial pace was pretty fast (moving speed of 33-34 km/h I'd guess), but steady, and the group seemed to be riding within their limits (e.g., those worried about overexerting themselves made sure they stayed within the pack and didn't try to take turns at the front. 

 

Despite the pace, everyone was together until we approached the…
