Death by Decew

I have a Canada Day weekend tradition: go for a bike ride that is significantly longer than what I’ve done in the current season. Usually that means I’m not in appropriate shape for the ride. This year was no exception. All in all, it was a good ride. The...

What? Two this Week?

Well, much to my surprise, the weather and schedule cooperated and I was able to get out for another ride. This time, I decided to ride the “mean streets” of St. Catharines to see what it’s like to ride in rush hour traffic. Aside from not being able...

Oh yeah – the ride

First ride of the year. Just the “usual” starter ride – down Decew, up Beaverdams, Merrittville Hwy. up to Merritt Rd., then back down to Decew and back to the subdivision. Not a bad ride. Used gears. Didn’t die, but I sure as heck felt...

Thanks, Georges

Well, the whole cycling thing fizzled last year. What a surprise. Apparently life can get in the way of cycling (or anything) if you don’t make it a priority, which honestly, it’s not. Family. Work. Kendo. Those are my priorities, and there’s plenty...

So, it’s a New Post

Sometimes I see stuff online that should be tested out. This site’s a bit of a testing ground for me. I hope you’ll excuse the mess 😉 Just testing some more linking stuff here. Oh, and some more here.

Fat’s Not So Bad

This is information from Good Calories, Bad Calories, by Gary Taubes, location 3605 in the Kindle e-reader. Porterhouse steak with a 1/4″ layer of fat. Post-cooking, 51% of the fat is MONOUNSATURATED (90% of this is oleic acid, same as in olive oil), 4% is...

Over 30

News flash: It’s incredibly easy to miss a day. Usually for seemingly good reasons. I last rode Saturday, which technically is last month. Sunday we were in transit. Monday was kendo at the JCCC and I didn’t want to have a hard workout in the morning. I...

Haist and Heavy Gears

In case you’re wondering what happened to Friday, no, it didn’t happen. I got home so late after Team Canada that I slept in. I was thinking of riding Friday evening, but too many errands got in the way. If I’d been less diligent about working, I...

Two Days Rest

Well, I was planning to ride two days on, one day off, but that hasn’t fully manifested yet. Yesterday I went to sleep late the night before so didn’t get up at 6 for the ride. This morning was rainy, and no, I’m not going to go for a training ride...
