Don MTB Trail shenanigans...

Hey All,

Not sure if anyone recalls but a year or two back someone was sabotaging MTB bridges on the Don trails. Well, I encountered something less dangerous but a notable nuisance all the same. I figured I'd put it out there...
I was…

Second Simcoe Scramble!

Well, my ride ended like this today, calling in the cavalry! How was Simcoe for everyone else?

Major Mac to Kleinburg + Loop

Hey, where was everybody? I waited at Major Mac and Leslie until 7:40 and figured either everybody took a different route or something! Anyway, it was probably just as well I did the loop alone, no one was there to hear my darn bike creaking! It's driving me nuts and I can't figure out where it's coming from. These darn carbon bikes (whine, whine) are like guitars, they resonate with every little noise!

Anyway, here are my stats: …

Saturday Zoo / Stouffville

Hey, hope everyone had a good Saturday ride...

I rode with quite a group up to Stouffville and back. The pace seemed pretty fast! I'm used to Saturdays having the odd push here and there but there just didn't seem to be much letting up! Next time, I'll be looking to take it a bit easier!

Anyway, how did everyone else' ride go?

Great Sunny Sunday!

Hey All!

What a terrific day out on the road! We set out on the Goodwood, Group 3 ride with Jeff, Emile, Jodie, Andrew, geez, am I forgetting someone? Way up near Stouffville Road, we met up with Paul. Awesome route with nary a car on it. Beautiful weather! Met up with the Goodwood, Group 2 at Annina's, Christina and Dave... man, who am I missing. Anyway, a great ride home too, save for a few flats and a dude from another club who got mixed up with us... Everyone got home…

Great Sunday Ride!

I hope everyone enjoyed their respective rides as much as I did today!

It was beautiful up in Goodwood! And cool to meet up with all of Group 4!

My legs had had enough by the time we got back to Kingston Rd! Thanks Jodie for sticking with me! 

How did the Stouffville group do?

What a beautiful weekend!

It was such nice weather, I just had to get out for a few hours in the forest. The Don was empty, with the sole exception of a few BCCers out there training in secret! I'm not giving any names but I think we all better watch out for the hardcores come springtime! :) …

Informal Simcoe Sunday

So, Alex and I decided to go for a little ride to lake Simcoe on Sunday... It was pretty grey weather-wise the whole way, but at least we didn't roast. Not many people out on the route we chose. And because it was just the two of us, we decided to shorten it up a… Continue

Hell of the North

So, no pictures to go with this report, sorry. But who (other than maybe Peter Sutton) could hold on to a camera over this terrain anyway!

It was a great day on the bike. Alex S., Jorge C. (DH) and I got up early and piled into the truck fully expecting to arrive early for the start, turns out we made it up to Cedar Beach Resort on the north shore of Musselman's Lake in record time and just hung out getting cold for an hour and a half... About 60 people finally showed up for the…

Exploring by cyclocross...

So, this past Sunday seemed to be a busy one for all! The marathon, several Stouffville rides and all. My buddy Jorge and I decided to go for a long cyclocross ride and do some exploring at the same time. We rode the abandonned rail line that stretches from Uxbridge east towards Lindsay (and then on to Peterborough)... I thought I'd share a few pics...…

In Provence for 12 days.

Now that the mornings are so chilly, I find myself daydreaming of the fun I had cycling over the summer. I thought I'd share a few pics I took in France. I met up with my brother in August for 12 days of cycling, beer and wine. Good times, good times! Hope you like 'em! Dru.…
