Ken Wilson captures all the Gold in Regina

Our Ken Wilson went to Regina last week with hopes of maybe getting some metal. Wow He took it all. Entered as Grand Master (50+) he took gold in the Road Race & the Time Trial. Way to go Ken! Suspect would have taken the Crit if they hadn't cancelled!

Fred Pepper takes Falkland 40

Fred Pepper was the clear winner at Falkand Saturday morning with a blazing 56:35. Five of the eleven entrants clocked under the hour. Whatever happened to the days when a 1:03 would get you 1st!? See results page

Good Friday April 13 this year! 

Team Race scoops all podium spots in Elite 

Men at Westover-Strabane!

Actually Good Friday the religious holiday is March 21st but your Executive decided to move our race day to the 13th - a Sunday to avoid the hypothermic ride experienced in 2007. Guess what it was still an icy day though the afternoon races didnt fair so badly. A record 370 riders signed in (record by recent standards - we used to have 450 20 years ago).

Hamilton Cycling Club and Sprockids at Paris To Ancaster

Thanks to the generous support of the Paris to Ancaster Organization our Hamilton CC youth leaders had the privelage of working with a group of 21 young mountain bikers between the ages of 8-12 yrs. Chris Kiriakopoulos was at the helm, supported by Julie Bieri, Leo Rock and five teenage members of HCC's Youth group . One pre teen graduate of our !st and 2nd Gear Sprockids programs was also invited to assist. This years P2A Intro to Sprockids group was particularly challenging to plan for given the range in ability. From total beginner, and 8yrs old...to an experienced O-Cup racer (12 yrs old). The HCC Leader team was on the job providing plenty of individual attention to all riders. Highlights of the day? The usual sights and sounds of kids on bikes. The few requisit misjudged tree roots, mud bogs and bends in the trail are always memerable. And the flat tire could not have happened at a better time. All teachable moments. Best of all for me was twenty minutes before the end of our session. We had made our way to the trail head off Martins Road, at the base of the climb to the finish of Paris to Ancaster. After a few minutes of cheering the P2A riders on, our Sprockids were given their final "riding" instuctions of the day before they were led up the climb with the big boys and girls. On the wheel of one particular 11yr old, I was thinking about how well she was managing on the climb when she calls out..."Go Daddy!". She actually kept up for 20-30 metres before dad dug down deep and pulled away. For sure...highlight of the day. 

The Hamilton Cycling Club is looking forward to a full season of leading young cyclists. The City of Hamilton Sprockids session in May (5 Saturdays) is full, and our Youth Group will soon announce their regular ride and race schedule.
