Monday Night MTB ride

Wow!  TWO Mondays in a row without rain!  Jeff and I had a lot of fun JRA (just riding along), although our competive natures did rear up from time to time - I would sprint up the hills and Jeff would return the favour by leaving me in the dust on the descents and through the tight, twisty sections.  (Watch the video and you'll see a couple of instances where Jeff just zooms away...)

Windy Hillicious Ride #16

Some excellent climbing was being showcased tonight.  Great to see how much everyone has improved since the beginning of the season!

 

 

The wind out of the northeast made the ride out a little harder, but most of Brimley was sheltered. (Whew! The climb is hard enough without adding a headwind!)  Great for the post-Meadowcliffe return ride and sprint, however! 

 

Thought I might take the hill climb dash up Meadowcliffe this week, but…

Finally, a Monday night without rain!

Jeff, Ryan and I took advantage of a rare Monday night without precipitation to hit the trails...

 

 

The evening got off to a bit of a slower start as Ryan was experiencing some mechanical difficulties, but Mr. Fixit Jeff quickly got him up and running.  Not surprisingly, given that both Jeff and Ryan are regular Tuesday night riders, the rest of the night was fast, fast, fast!

Another Heavenly Hillicious Ride...

Seemed to be the night for many former regulars to reaquaint themselves with the Brimley hill.

 

 

Thanks to Jeff and Eric for once again joining the fun, and good to see Brooke, Ian, Jason, Jon, and Patryk out again!  After beating ourselves up on Brimley, the group did a short Tour de Scarborough over to the Meadowcliffe hill, just 'cause we kinda like the way it hurts...

 

It's clearly getting later in the season - there was some mighty…

Another Thursday Hillicious Evening!

I love these Hillicious rides so much I returned home from vacation early just to participate!

 

 

Well, not really - we came back early to take the kids to Wonderland.  However, there's only so much spinning, twirling, and loop de loops an eight and ten year old (and their parents) can take, so we were back in time for me to race to Birchmount and Kingston Road for 6:30pm. 

 

Thanks to Dan for organizing and leading the Thursday rides in…
