The first, a 600 metre sprint climb was in Mill Bay on Saturday morning, with a longer 9 k climb up West Shawnigan lake Rd / Coldstream Heights in the afternoon. The spri...

Tsolum River Road Race - Comox - April 25 - Wheelers continue their strong showings.

Leaving Victoria at 7 am in the rain was not boding well for the Tsolum River Road Race, the first of the season racing series up in the Comox Valley. The skies cleared around Nanaimo though, and we were greeted with rising temperature and sunshine on the start line for the 88 km , 8 lap road race. ...

April 12 VCL #2 - Caleb

Great race today for the Victoria Wheelers. With a small A group starting as a result of many riders heading to the mainland for Jeremy's Roubaix the pace in the first couple of laps was steady, but not crazy. Mick and Eugene from the Wheelers began animating things a bit and countered one another f...

Re: Wednesday Group Training Rides

Blair and I headed out on the Wednesday training ride on wet roads with rain threatening, but the skies cleared a bit and we actually had nice weather for the ride. The workout went well, and we were both suitably wrecked from the interval session. Next Wednesday there is going to be an open, free w...

Re: Wednesday Group Training Rides

Great workout on March 25. Byrnes and Marc D out with me and we ripped it up. Definitely got the heart rate up and we were pretty fried by the end, but we all agreed that it was a beautiful night for a ride, and the rain stayed away! Next week is long intervals at threshold. If we gat a group of guy...

Re: Wednesday Group Training Rides

This past Wednesday, (March 18), three guys turned out for the Wednesday night men's training ride. Mick, Blair and Andrew R left OBB at around 6:10. After a relaxing warm up we hit Sea Ridge Rd. and did three hard repeats up and down Sea Ridge. Andrew was taking it easy on the first climb, as he di...

Re: Wednesday Group Training Rides

I was all alone on the Wednesday ride on the 11th, but that was OK. It was not a pleasant night. Had a good workout though. This week is a hill / interval workout. Once again, leaving OBB at 6 pm this Wednesday. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we'll have a few more guys out. See you Wednesd...
