Super Soaker Sunday Ride...





Hope you all had an enjoyable ride. I heard that it really came down.  I short turned with Emile and Tim at Warden and Vandorf.  Sounds like everyone made it back safely:-), some a little more dry than others.  Comments welcome.  Next week we "Slay the…

No Ordinary Tuesday Night...



Welcome to all the new riders out, and willing to punish yourselves.  I say this because the ride itself(from all the posts etc. can be quite intimidating).  Congrats to all the new riders that committed.  Tim, hope you're feeling ok. Thanks Brian for helping out.  Very nice to see ratio of guys to girls is evening out!  Thanks everyone for being safe whilst pushing your limits.  Even though it hurts, you feel good after, and that's what Tuesday Night Rides are all… Continue

What a Scorcher!



The morning was beautiful!  We met at Elgin and Leslie and had a group of 7 heading up for Lake Simcoe. It all started when I initiated a sprint(surprised?) as we were getting close to the lake & Dave B and Joe followed.. then it happened!  Dave's rear derailleur made it's way into his wheel and exploded.  We manage to fix it with a chain break tool and a power link - converted to single speed McGyver styles and he rode up and back in one gear.  20-1 as Dave would…

What an Amazing Day for a Ride...



I kinda went crazy with the pics today.  Really funny sequence of shots of Paul running to get in the picture last minute:-)  The sequence is pretty hilarious!  I counted 46 riders in our group.  Hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable ride.  Our Pickering group had great cohesion and split into a faster and slower group on the way back.  Nice to meet all the new riders.  Have a great day and don't forget to enjoy the… Continue

Wind.... what wind?



Forgot to take a picture at the start.  As we got going, I tried to keep the pace sane at just under 40kph(think we had a tail wind).  Going up Midland, we maintained the 40kph+ Riding speed into the wind.  It was fast!.  3 Sprints and a 4 lap Crit later my stats were 55kms, Avg of 30kph(which is no representation of "ride speed" btw), and a Max of 67kpm on the Danforth sprint(had a little help).  What a way to get back into riding after a week of eating lots of…
