73. DO the El Bandito

My Sincerest Apologies Here's the thing about my blog:  it's all for fun. I don't have bottom line with the blog.  I don't monetize it (yeah, like that would be a possibility even if I wanted to); I don't get free stuff; and there is really nothing in it for me aside from the fun … Continue reading 73.

68. SingleTrack Classic

Two Dudes, Two Forks, One Bowl Team Colin at the SingleTrack Classic! I have to say it.  Phew.  I'm glad the 2018 SingleTrack Classic is finished. Well, sort of.  I'd race it again right now if I could, but the SingleTrack Classic, presented by Pulse Racing, at Hardwood Hills, was my third weekend on a … Continue reading 68.

66. Spring Epic 8 Hour

8 Hours, 30 Minutes, and 2 Bikes I have the hurts. Saturday's Epic 8 Hour, presented by Chico Racing, at Mansfield Outdoor Education Centre was a killer, and that's all there is to say about it.

8 Weeks: Week 5

Uh Oh, It's March Break Week 5 started with a BANG.  We planned to go away for the break, so I hadn't thought much about the Substance Projects/Cannondale/Hardwood Fatbike Race, but my daughter was sick, and we found ourselves housebound.  So, I activated my usual policy about bike races: If there's a race, and I … Continue reading 8 Weeks: Week 5

63. Hardwood Fatbike Race

When in Doubt, Race Awesome. Awe.  Some. AWESOMEAWESOMEAWESOME! What a great race.  It was The Hardwood Fatbike Race:  Race #4 in the 45NRTH Ontario Fatbike Race Series (p/b Cannondale, Substance Projects, and The Crank & Sprocket Bicycle Co.).  Say that fast three times. Yes, seriously, that's the full name race. When the organizers announced the … Continue reading 63. Hardwood Fatbike Race
