K-W Classic OCUP: A Familiar Refrain
I like the K-W (Kitchener-Waterloo) Classic for a few reasons:  It was my first-ever road race , even if it was a completely different and far less scenic course in 2013; it was the scene (sort of) of one of my stupider mistakes ; and also because the race ...

Mid-Week Crits: Facing My Critophobia
The first race I ever considered doing was the Springbank Crit ...back in 2013, the year I joined the Flyers. It was near the end of the OCUP season, and late enough, I figured, for me to get my fitness to somewhat up to speed. (HA. Little did I know.) Anyw...

Calabogie Boogie: OCUP #2 2016
The usual first OCUP of 2016, Good Friday, was iced by freak weather and I was OK with that; I did a recon on the course the week before, and that damn cowpath out of the Ancaster Fair Grounds looked like, well, a damned cowpath. Potholes and ruts in the cr...

Grey County Road Race, May 24th 2015: Suffer Score Festival
This year's Grey County Road Race was a UCI amateur championship qualifier ...which was kinda cool, because it felt like a real pro race. And Collingwood is a beautiful area, so it's a great course. Actually there were a lot of great things about this race....

Niagara Classic: OCUP #4, May 17th
I'm beginning to appreciate the value of a little experience Not that I have much. But familiarity – returning to a race I've done before –  makes a huge difference. Just knowing where everything is (parking, registration, washrooms...) really takes a lot o...

Steve Bauer (Niagara) Classic: Effingham Still F-ing
The venerable Niagara Classic was re-christened The Steve Bauer Classic this year Which was a nice touch and a tip of the hat to a local guy who was only one of the greatest cyclists Canada ever produced. Steve himself was fully in attendance, running stuff...

The Medical Profession doesn't get (old) athletes
Not in my experience, anyway. Three years ago I did an early-season 8K running
race. I knew the course (The Spring Run-Off in High Park) and had run it a
number of times. I wasn't really trained up for it, it was just a way to
jump-start duathlon trainin...

Grey County Road Race, May 10th 2014
La Lanterne Rouge, C'est Moi! It's not every day that I get to feel kinship with a real Canadian international pro cyclist, but the Grey County Road Race last season was my Svein Tuft moment. Dead last! but a proud accomplishment nonetheless. Sure, as sport...

A late post on this race, which was actually a while ago. However.

K-W Classic: A Classic Mistake
Now listed among the Top 10 Dumb Things I've Ever Done is driving away to a race with my bike safely on the roof rack, and my front wheel sitting on the curb where I left it as I was loading up. Which is why I missed this year's OCUP #6, The K-W Classic * ....
