Ride Report – May 4th-10th 2015

TT Ride Report – May 5th

Another great TT night with 19 riders getting out to enjoy the warmer weather.  For the 13 riders making back to back appearances, times seemed to be 3% slower than the previous week. This was likely due to the slight wind from the SE which makes the lakeshore course show a little more teeth.  The potentially harder conditions however did not stop some riders from getting their fastest times for 2015. Keep up the great work everyone. If you haven’t checked already result are posted here.

Thursday Tempo Ride Report – May 7th

Some solid numbers also made it out on Thursday to help make the second tempo ride a success. After rolling out to Grafton together, two groups formed.  ‘A’ group rider group consisting of 6-7 riders were tapping out some serious lap times averaging 35-39km/hr. The ‘B’ group of 8 riders focused more getting comfortable in a paceline while still doing a great effort. Hopefully all new and seasoned riders had a great time, got a good workout while improving group technique. Feedback is always appreciated on the new course and how to make things better. If numbers continue to hold or hopefully grow perhaps 3 groups of 5-7 riders can form to the various abilities. Level 2 – 25-30km group, Level 3 – 30-35km/hr group and Level 4 35+km/hr group. Those who couldn’t make it out the next tempo ride is scheduled for Thursday May

Thanks to CCC President Stewart Richardson for leading the 2nd annual Presidents ride. For the first CCC group ride of the year conditions were perfect. Unfortunately I couldn’t make it but it sounded like everyone had a great time and judging by the photo made it to Alderville.

For group rides like this to happen which everyone loves, we need ride leaders.  If your interested in leading a weekend group ride please let us know and we will help communicate the details. Rides can be of various levels and distances.
