We are still alive and riding..The cyclocross season is about to begin...... and a few other important things





So we are at the 66% or 2/3 mark in this season and its just starting to get exciting, Our team of fantastic athletes, racers,riders, club members and sponsors are heading into the next phase of the riding season.

As the summer shifts to  the fall  season our members will compete in a number of big events . For some these events are really big hurdles and major accomplishments for others they form part of the process and a continuation of a race season that started in April and will finish with most probably a snowy Cyclocross in some part of the country

Some up and coming major events

Blue Mountain Centurion. A 170 KM Grand Fondo with over 6000 feet for climbing . Historically we have allot of riders participating. Its tough and fun all at the same time!

Weekly Cyclocross practice

Big Miles Posted last week at Erace Cancer Cycling Team


Erace Cancer posts big climbs and miles last week. A few caveats,  Note that allot of team does not use Stava or ride with a GPS so team mile in any given week may be much higher. We are working on a fundraiser for www.ooch.org +CampOoch  based upon tracked Strava over a given week. Please stay tuned, we need our support.

So who is Camp Ooch and why do we at Erace Cancer Cycling Team p/b La Bicicletta support their efforts

So why do we sponsor Camp Oochigeas and who are they anyway.. what do they do?
We chose to work with them because the help kids . They help kids and their families when they find themselves in very difficult circumstances follow our team and racing at www.eracecancer.ca
WHAT IS CAMP OOCH?
Camp Oochigeas (Ooch) is a privately funded, volunteer-based organization that provides kids with and affected by childhood cancer with unique opportunities for growth through challenging, fun, enriching and magical experiences.
Cancer changes a child’s life. So does Camp. At Ooch, we offer a wide variety of year-round camp programs for kids with cancer, their siblings, and their families. There’s something for everyone, and every program is guaranteed to be filled with friendship, fun and life-changing memories.
WHERE DOES IT HAPPEN?
We offer magical programs at our Residential (sleepover) Camp in Muskoka, at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), three other regional cancer centres across Southern Ontario and at Ooch Downtown, our urban recreational facility in the heart of Toronto.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Cancer is a difficult experience for the whole family. In response to this reality, we offer various programs for children (ages 4-18) with and affected by childhood cancer, their siblings and their parents/guardians. Some campers are newly diagnosed and on active treatment and some have been in remission for years. The Ooch community is full of kids and families that understand.
WHEN DOES IT HAPPEN?
Programs happen almost 365 days a year. There is always something happening at Ooch.
