101. Reggie Ramble

Introducing the Reggie Ramble "Leaves are falling all around" Well that was fun. The Superfly Racing Reggie Ramble was a seriously fun, wickedly cool, smiling-from-ear-to-ear, good-time, deliriously awesome, gravel rip. I just have one question:  What the hell is a Reggie? Is it a type of race?  A Norwegian sports car?  An menu item at … Continue reading 101. Reggie Ramble

99. Scrappy Badger

I Was WRONG? Well this is new. I was wrong. Hmm, so that's what it feels like... I'm kidding, I've made a life and a career out of making mistakes.  Sometimes, they're big mistakes, and sometimes they're small.  You know, like buying gas station coffee. But I gotta say this:  Scrappy Badger?  Pfft.  More like … Continue reading 99. Scrappy Badger

98. El Bandito ’19

Take THAT El Bandito Well, another El Bandito is in the books, and it was a blast.  The Bandit STARTS and FINISHES at the bottom of Brimacombe ski hill.  It's not easy to start at the bottom of a ski hill, but it sure was fun, and with three distances to choose from, a course … Continue reading 98.

97. Scrappy Badger Pre-Ride

Because it's almost here! IT'SALMOSTHERE!!! The inaugural Scrappy Badger, presented by Substance Projects is going to be one hell of a rip.  There are … Continue reading 97. Scrappy Badger Pre-Ride

90. Paris to Ancaster 2019

The 2019 P2A70 is a Wrap! Well that was fun. Truthfully, it was actually kind of horrible.  But the fun kind of horrible. A giant, horrible, fun-bucket of playing bikes. You have to get it in order to get it. Honestly, there isn't much I can say about the Paris to Ancaster bike race that … Continue reading 90. Paris to Ancaster 2019

77. Howling Coyote Pre Ride

Why Dan, Why? September 16, 2018:  Mono, Ontario. Misery loves company. So when Dan Marshall of Substance Projects scouts a new race course, he sometimes invites his pals to join. I'm one of his pals. Dan:  I'm scouting tomorrow morning, wanna come? Me:  Uh, sure. Dan:  7AM, Mono Cliffs Community Centre. "Uh, sure"?  What is … Continue reading 77. Howling Coyote Pre Ride

74. El Bandito 2018

Brimacombe Ski Hill.  July 21, 2018 When the CN railway cut a ribbon of track across the Canada, they connected the web of low lying areas with a path that had the lowest grade. Substance Projects did NOT cut the El Bandito course by connecting low lying areas with a path that had the lowest grade. … Continue reading 74. El Bandito 2018

65. P2A 2018

Happy Race Anniversary Team Colin! Well, there's no doubt about it.  The Universe is actively conspiring against me this season.  My day-to-day personal situation is in absolute turmoil (although I'm still married and my kids are okay, so it can't be that bad) but it looks like riding/racing/anything to do with bikes is going to … Continue reading 65. P2A 2018

64. Steaming Nostril 2018

Snort! Elmira, Ontario.  April 8, 2018. Wow.  Just wow. It was probably one of my toughest races yet. It was cold.  It was muddy.  It was really really hard. It was 65k of some of the gnarliest, greasiest, and ugliest, gravel/road/trail/field around. It was also 65k of some of the awesomest, and finest, gravel/road/trail/field around. It … Continue reading 64. Steaming Nostril 2018
