Tour de Terra Cotta Report

Posted on August 3, 2016 at 11:19am 6 Comments

TL;DR summary: First place in my age group, experienced new levels of pain and hurt.

For the third year in a row, I participated in the Tour de Terra Cotta.

Because I haven't trained as much this year (only one BCC Tuesday), I went in the short 26km race again.  It seems to get harder each year, but at least it's over after about 40 minutes. This…


Tour de Hans ... Crash Ending!

Posted on September 29, 2015 at 2:57pm 10 Comments

Well, I had a nasty crash in a sprint finish at the Tour de Hans on Sunday in Cambridge. I had a concussion and broke my collar bone :((

Not to mention road rash on my shoulder, arms and hip, and a few cuts on my left hand and leg. But my face is intact!

It's too bad because it was going so well. This was my second Tour de Hans (the 50km race), and despite limited time on the bike in the last few weeks I managed to get some good training to prepare for it. Having done the ride…


Tour de Terra Cotta

I had a good race at Terra Cotta: 2nd place finish in the age 50-59 group and 9th overall.

As I did last year, I registered in the beginners' race again, which is only 26 km, consisting of three loops of a rectangular course on closed roads. I found the field was much stronger this year, with 10 riders from Kurzawinski and several from Morning Glory,…


Halton Epic Tour Ride Report

Posted on September 9, 2014 at 11:17am 6 Comments

Last Sunday September 7 was a perfect early sunny fall day for the Halton Epic Tour.

BCC was well represented by Bob Knight, Chris Andrews, Neil Bacon, Jim Vandekas,  Joseph, Wayne, Dave Adams and me. (I may have missed one or two others.) We all did the Gran Fondo route of 140 km.  There are other distances available from 50 km to the 170 km Ultra Fondo.

Great event and well-organized, with police managing traffic on every busy corner. Well-stocked rest stops, clear directions…

Yes. Last Friday night I blew my back tire twice while pumping it so I had to cancel.
