Biking in the bedroom

Biking in the bedroom

After a mild December, the snow seems to have finally arrived and it’s getting deeper… And it’s getting colder. I had planned on running all winter, but have taken the last 2 days off due to knee pain. The roads and sidewalks around here seem too treacherous and I’m afraid of slipping and pulling something. I also just had an MRI on my right knee for a nagging injury and am awaiting the results, so I thought I’d be responsible ...

Here are some clues that you might be hardcore 🙂

There was a steep hill climb before the racing officially began at the top. Then it was downhill overall for about 20 km until the next climb, which was the KOM, so there was a huge bunch packed together for ...

My first race

Although I completed the Centurion C50 at Blue Mountain in 2011, I wouldn’t consider that my first race… I was really just there to challenge myself with the hills and the distance and to gain some experience riding in a group.

I would consider my first race to be the Tour de Waterloo in 2012. This was a 130km route that was fairly flat overall. By this time, I had just joined the Speed River Cycling Club and there were ten ...
