Ride Synopsis - La Bicicletta GranFondo





I decided to participate in this year's La Bicicletta GranFondo Ride.  I have never done one of these rides before so I wasn't sure what to expect other than they said: "Fully Supported".  I'm in!  Thinking I was going to take a break from the organizing and marshaling that I normally try to do on BCC Rides.  There were a lot of people I…

Super Charged Turbo Tuesday.....Zoooooooommmm!

What a day! Glad it didn't Rain....



Nice to see some new faces... I had the count over 50 riders... Hope you all enjoyed yourselves.

 

On a side note, Here's a friendly remember: Safety is First - #1

1. Check for cars before passing, try to get your position before a downhill or on an uphill.  Passing less experienced riders can be unnerving for them.

2. Back of the Pack…

Sunday Morning Soaker...



It was 5:30am & I was on the Gardiner, on my way to Marie Curtis and it started to rain.  As I approached the exit, Evan texted me to let me know that it was also pouring in the Beach.  We decided together that it was unsafe promote a "Formal Sunday Ride", so I canceled the ride at 5:59am.  I figured that anyone else would have decided that they wouldn't ride in the pouring rain.  As I started to drive back towards the beach in the heavy rain, I got a text from…
