Back on the Bike

So, cleat changed, body still suffering from a bit of a cold, and rusty from 16 days off the bike, I headed out to a special group ride. This Monday was a civic holiday.  Where I live it is Simcoe … Continue reading

Oooops of a Saturday

Morning Ride with a Tumble

I got up for my Saturday ride today and felt pretty good. When I arrived at the meeting point, I could see that there was a pretty big turnout.  I was even greeted by Terrence, who I hadn’t seen in … Continue reading
