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...

Race Day Kit Checklist
I can't think at 5 am Especially if it's 5am on the morning of a race. I'll be too busy being stressed about the race and tired from being up later than I wanted. And The Curse of OCUP Masters 3 Races is that they are almost always the first or second race ...

On Chamois Cream
Great Mother of God... Why didn't anybody tell me about this before? I mean, I knew about it; but I didn't, y'know, know about it. The winter indoor training rides were putting a bit more stress than normal on the ass regions, so I decided to give this stuf...

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 * ....

Six Goals for Racing
The other day, one of my clubmates quoted some hammerhead dick as saying, "There's no point in racing if you don't intend to win." Sure thing, Lance. You go. I view bike racing as more like kung fu: no matter how good you are, there's always somebody, somew...
