Ultimate "skills" session! Joyride 150 (Markham)- Friday, June 9 (10am-2pm)

Hi all-

 

We're planning a special event for this Friday, June 9.  (The fact that it's a PA day for TDSB kids is an added bonus!)  The plan is to meet at Joyride 150 in Markham (Link below) at 10am.  Joyride is an indoor bike “playground” that will allow us all to build some new skills, and much more importantly, it should be insanely  fun!

Tour for Kids 2012

Sorry- no pictures- but I thought I'd send along a quick summary of my Tour for Kids adventure.

 

This was my first T4K's- and I have to say that it is an incredible event, with outstanding cyclists and volunteers.  Most importantly, it is an outstanding cause.  While we did not have a BCC team per say, I came across several BCCer's including Arn, Albert, Andrew, Joel, Bruce, Michael, Ang, and Julie Toole (who I had a chance to ride with a couple of times and is incredibly fast…

BCC as ambassadors

Hey all-


Ok, I admit, I haven't been out with the crew much this year (it's been an insane summer!) This aside, the club still means a lot to me and I'm always so proud to say that I ride with BCC. It's why I find this post a bit difficult, but necessary. This past week, as a pedestrian, I managed to see two BCCer's on the road, (both riding solo) which is always great to see. Although I saw the two at separate times, I witnessed both engaged in reckless and disrespectful…

Ride for Karen 2009



Ride for Karen 2009



The Ride for Karen was well represented by BCC again this year by Peter O, Kerri, Arn, Speedy Steve, Michael, Paul, Mike, (the other really fast Steve), and Peter. In true Ride for Karen style, the day started with some ominous looking clouds to the north. Luckily, our sun dance worked and the possibility of another sleet-hampered R4K dissipated. Our spirits rose, and… Continue
