Another exciting Monday night BCC ride in the Don Valley!
As the night ride was populated by our recent MTB converts - Alexx, Mel, and Trish - we decided to hold an impromptu skills session before hitting the trails.
Thanks to Jeff's excellent instruction, these "newbies" have quickly turned into some pretty awesome riders. Picture and video evidence are included below, including some footage I took trying to chase down speedy Trish (on her second ever MTB ride!) on some of the flatter terrain. As you can tell from the video, she was doing pretty well at pulling away from me.
There's also some interesting footage that I accidentally shot when I suddenly had to grab the bar while holding the camera. Didn't even realize I had turned the camera on. The video ends pretty quickly, so I must have had a finger on the shutter button and hit it again while going over a bump.
Cycling in the summer can be about casual riding, sprinting, spinning, big-ring hammerfests or what ever your chosen type of riding is. The BCC was founded for the sole purpose to network cyclists. It has grown into a successful club which accommodates Riders at almost all skill/fitness levels. Everyone should be able to participate and have fun at their respective levels.
Start time is 8:00am early season, 7:00am as days get longer. Route distances vary from 55-120km and several pace groups are available. Saturday morning rides focus on a social vibe.
