2012 Ride for Heart Part 1: Forming the Team

Ride for Heart took on a whole different level this year.  Being the Team Captain of a Corporate Team is a wild ride on its own.  Ride for Heart is an annual charity cycling event in Toronto on June 3, 2012, where the Don Valley Parkway & Gardiner Expressway (2 main highways!) are closed down...

Riding for Champagne?

The Shed Coffee Bar has always been 1 of my favourite coffee shops & cycling destination.  Cycling oriented, scenic location, & lattes served in a bowl!!  Thanks to Facebook, I found out about their relocation from Belfountain to Erin a few weeks ago.  5km away from the old location! Today was their Grand Opening! (Route... Continue Reading →

Impulsive Training Ride

This ride was only supposed to be recorded on my Dailymile - not expecting it to be special enough to blog.  Same old route to Caledon - my "go-to" route, the one I did 2 days ago, the one I know all too well.  I woke up to sunshine, warmth, & low wind (at least... Continue Reading →

Cheltenham Badlands

1 down on my 2012 To-Do cycling trips!!  I wanted to visit Cheltenham Badlands in Caledon, ON since October 2011 (ROUTE MAP).  I originally planned on riding to The Shed Coffee Bar in Belfountain, ON with a detour to Cheltenham Badlands on the way.   Yesterday I found out The Shed is relocating to Erin,...

1st 2012 ride

I took last week off work, but it's not the perfect holiday until a bike ride is involved.  Temperature today was over 5C.  Is it really January in Canada?  Not complaining, in fact, I give Mother Nature a huge THANK YOU!! 😀 I took full advantage of the warm (but breezy!) day to start training...

LarabaLLs

Being an energy bar junkie has flattened my wallet over the past year.  When selecting bars, I'm not concerned about whether they are organic; however, they do need to be natural (as much as possible).  Natural products are conveniently pricier than those overdosed with glucose-fructose.  I rely on them primarily for cardio activities (biking &...

2011 Closing & New Pedals

OUT with the platforms, IN with the clipless!!  FINALLY!!! 😀 Now I have nothing to blame but myself whenever someone beats me on an uphill.  As mentioned before, I have a pair of bike shoes that are 1 size too small.  It's still on sale in Kijiji if anyone's interested!!  I ended up buying another...

‘CRAP’-py End to Bike Season??

Thanks to the sunshine today, I managed to squeeze in probably the last bike trip this year. 😦 We decided to set out later than usual due to the cool temperature (highest 10C).  C'mon PM sun & warmth!! We were off just shy of noon.  The route was along the Humber River Trail/ Waterfront Trail;... Continue Reading →

The Shed Finale

I hit up The Shed in Belfountain, ON (Route map) today for the 4th & probably last time this year.  No particular reason except for the love of coffee & cycling.  I didn't wear my attires properly today & suffered horrible saddle pain.  I was stopping every ~5km to alleviate the pain.  It was a...

Biking around St.Catharines

I truly have met some amazing people at MS Bike Tour.  Besides playing squash together, they periodically cycle together which are typically organized by Mustafa & his family. For the grand finale of summer, Mustafa organized a bike ride around St. Catharines today.  The route is part of the 57km Thorold-Welland Loop.  Luch invited me... Continue Reading →

Tour de Greenbelt 2011

I've waited one whole year for this year's Tour de Greenbelt......yes, a "thumb twiddling" long wait.  It's finally HERE!!!  😀  I got a cold since Monday, but nothing, I mean NOTHING is going to stop me from participating.  I was prepared.....my bike bag was stuffed with Kleenex! 😛 Unlike previous years (ie. at Niagara &...

Blue Mountain shows no mercy!

People normally go DOWNhill at Blue Mountains.  I beg to be different, I go UPhill.  For the 1st time in the 2 years I've been cycling, I did not enjoy my ride at all.  The combination of terrifying weather, challenging terrain, & getting lost made yesterday's ride the most traumatic ride yet. In preparation for... Continue Reading →
