1st MTB Experience

Winter came for a visit again, thanks to whoever invited it.  With riding plans this weekend, my standard dropped to "Just be dry, please!" as I begged on all fours.  Even THAT was too much to ask for!  This morning, I woke up  to a thin layer of snow in my backyard, trees swaying in...

Milton Tri Bike Course – 6th Line Hill

I'm really enjoying mixing short intense rides with long steady rides this year.  Today was a short all-out-effort ride on the Milton Triathlon bike course (ROUTE MAP) which included my nightmare 6th Line hill.  After last year's experience up this hill, I didn't plan on revisiting the horror until the weather gets hot (not just...

The Last Ride

It's my tradition to visit Cafe Domestique at least once a year (ROUTE MAP).  Route was planned since early October.  Then came all the injuries & wet weather. 😦 What a shame to end a season with an unfinished business after such an amazing cycling year!!  No, I CANNOT let that happen. With temperatures nearing... Continue Reading →

Mission failed! 😦 I only got 1 ride in on Saturday.  My route was all mapped... Continue Reading →

Fall is Here

Hello Fall!!  Today's ride to Mount Nemo (ROUTE MAP) kicks off my 1st Fall ride of the season.  I'm sad to see summer go, but seeing Fall colours is quite refreshing!  The weather was FAR from motivating, wind speed reaching a high of 37km/hr.  YUCK!  I was on autopilot to move my butt out the...

6th Line Hell

I resumed my hill training at Milton.  Today's target was the hill on 6th Line (ROUTE MAP).  I can't think of any other way to describe it except "Sheer Hell".  It was absolute terror as I turned onto 6th Line.  The hill went on forever!  Too bad photos never give any hill justice ... I... Continue Reading →

I Found Nemo

Thanks to everyone's suggestions last week, I've concluded that "If I want hills, go to Milton".  Milton has 3 featured hills in order of increasing agony: 1) Mount Nemo on Guelph Line; 2) 6th Line North of Campbellville Rd; 3) Appleby Line North of Derry Rd.  Being someone whose keen on living through the weekend, I...
