The Hills of Hockley is a 200 kilometre ride planned and organized by the Randonneurs of Ontario, the club I ride with. Yesterday I rode this event, completing the ride in a duration of 11.5 hours.
The planned route can be viewed here.
My ride, with statistics, can be viewed here.
Although I came to the end of my endurance in the final fifty kilometres, I am becoming more satisfied with my performance as a cyclist.
My first solo bicycle trip around Lake Ontario.

I'm becoming a better roller.
This might be my last rolling session for May, as there is so much going on. I am happy with the numbers shown in the graph.
The blue line represents speed in km/h.
The red line is my heart rate (bpm).
My age right now is a prime number. My age is greater than the number of kilometres in a marathon. Soon I will be turning X, where X is the product of a perfect square, and a prime number. Can you determine how old I will be turning?
My bicycle trip with my dad, no car, just 560 kilometres of travel completed by leg power was a complete success. My dad is at a “significant milestone” in his age – he was able to do 8 kilometres for each year he is old. He was stoic in silently suffering some discomfort in the region of the Ischial Tuberosity.
Our trip had some mis-adventure, but that’s part of a bicycle trip! We accomplished our objective, ate and drank as much as we liked, and didn’t gain weight!
We had some awkward moments, and I hope my dad sees the humour in all of it, as I do.
My 2nd major ride of 2009 went very well. Essentially flat and nice wide roads with nice weather and scenery, made this a very pleasant ride. Plus I was able to push myself physically and was averaging around 30 km/h on the way back. Some faster riders went past me, but they motivated me.
My first bike ride of 2009 went fairly well. Being the optimistic and ambitious guy I am, I overestimated the mileage I could cover in one day, and underestimated the difficulty of the ride, but overall it was a good experience.
