If we’re just meeting, I’m president of a cycling team, and we race in the OCA – Ontario Cycling Association.
See the red logo on the shoulders? That’s my internet show, The Canadian Explorer.
2007-10 I travelled around Canada celebrating it (do more of that, okay), documented it all in 80 episodes, they were some of the best years I ever had. The site is a mess, but if you’re willing to wade around there’s some entertaining stuff over there.
Other teams have tents and buses, many are 30+ members strong.
We are small and scrappy, but we medal a lot.
We are a great team.
We’ve placed 3rd in Ontario 3 times already this season!
Who’s with me?
One of my favourite things about a race: the mobile command centre.
Another favourite part:
What a great way to mark time. You know how I feel about time.
My least favourite part.
They race for 90 minutes, so sometimes you have to feed them.
They grab the bottle at 30km/h, and if you screw up they cramp up, lose, and you are a bad president.
(note: if you ever meet someone who did this race, be impressed; that hill is gruesome)
Here’s to a successful second half of the season, team, <3 ya!
