I’ve blogged several times about the Paris to Ancaster (P2A) cycling event. I’ve blogged about my thoughts during the ride, how I prepare and even tips for newbies. Yesterday, I completed the shorter St.George to Ancaster event on my fat bike, and 2017 marked the 16th straight year I’ve entered the race.
Share the Road is a cycling advocacy group that is working to make Ontario more cycling-friendly. As an avid cyclist, this is an organization that is near and dear to my heart. Last year, with my three siblings, I rode 100 km in Halton Region to help raise money for this great cause. This year, we were at it again, this time, with more family members participating!
I joined the Waterloo Cycling Club (WCC) in 2003 solely as a mountain biker. I’d been mountain biking with my two brothers, usually at Dundas Valley or weekend trips to places like Kelso and I joined the club because I wanted to learn about more local places to ride trails and meet local cyclists. I soon learned that K-W has one of the best mountain bike trail networks in Ontario: The Hydrocut. I also got to know club members through the mountain bike group rides and within a year, I bought a used road bike and learned how to ride in groups on the road.
