2013 Fall Epic 8hr Relay @Hardwood Hills Ski and Bike

A quick, killer course of mostly single track action was just what the doctor ordered for probably the last Black Fly race of 2013. 

Team Black Fly RacingThe Grey Fly Edition (avg. age 41)–had a fine showing at this year's Fall Epic 8hr Relay. Despite a cloudy and slightly chilly start to the day, we were blessed with sunny skies and toasty temps from late morning onward. 

The course was devoid of any monster climbs or epic drops. Instead, we rode through Switchback City, with one tight twist after another... after another. This was the kind of course that made you question your bar width as there were a few moments where breezing through the trees on the downhills required a bit of reflex. Tight as a grape, as one of us muttered. 

We chased the 3rd spot all day to finish 4th overall out of 24 teams in our class–a decent showing, to be sure, but as Cam put it, we didn't really want to hang around for the podium ceremonies anyway. We finished, as Dean said, where we wanted to.

Cheers brothers, for a fantastic day of racing, rapping, and napping. Word to all Flies abroad–you were missed, as always.

Night Riding in the Don

Who needs 24 races?

Well, they are awesome but for anyone who has invested in lights and wants to use them more, just ride your favorite trail at night.

Last night, a bunch of us hit the Don at about 8pm.  I've been on that trail hundred's of times but last night was the first at night.  Fun.  Will be doing it again.

2013 Paris-Ancaster

For those that raced today, nice work out there fighting the elements, the mud and over 2000 other participants in the 20th annual Paris-Ancaster!

For those that couldn't make it out, I'm sure the hill will be there next year.

See you at Mansfield!

More wintertime riding

Keep it coming so called winter...

Monday, January 07, 2013

It was snowing before the ride and we went out anyways.  
It got worse as the ride progressed.
The motorists must have thought we were crazy.
But what do they think when they see a cyclist actually enjoying themselves?
