the calendar

AUGUST 1 #crossiscoming has probably been littering your social feeds since early July. We at Canadian Cycling Magazine believe this is the earliest date on which you should use this hashtag. Then, like your white clothing, you should put it away after Labour Day. #unlikelytohappen 9-18 In June, Vaea Verbeeck extended her lead in the Queen of Crankworx competition after races in Innsbruck, Austria.

In 2020, you can race in a cycling world championships here in Canada. The UCI Gran Fondo World Series, which is essentially the amateur road world championships, will culminate with the RBC GranFondo Whistler.

kurt swinghammer

Kurt Swinghammer – the award-winning songwriter, producer and visual artist – doesn’t own a car. Living in a Toronto neighbourhood west of downtown, he uses two wheels to get around town. He’s been riding bikes since he could walk. The artist moved to Canada’s largest city in 1984, at a time when there weren’t many other urban cyclists. “Many times – especially at night – you would be the only bike on the road,” Swinghammer recalled. “In the creative arts community, we are often early adopters of things. Using a bicycle to get around then was not the hip thing. It was a necessity. For me, cycling is the most fun way to get around, the healthiest, and the best for the environment. It’s also efficient and cheap. “I find jumping on…

from outside the laughing group

It was Friday, April 19. I woke up to a heavy, cold rain. It was the first Ontario Cup of the season: Mosport Classic. As I pulled the first espresso shot and huddled by the fire (or at least by the heating grate), I held two contradictory thoughts in my head. Damn, I’m glad I’m not racing on this miserable day. Damn, I’m going to miss racing this year. It wasn’t the first time I’d experienced cognitive dissonance when thinking about bike racing. As anyone who races knows, you are constantly in agony in races, but loving it at the same time. You hate interval training, but love the improvements it brings. You dread the “chill” group ride that inevitably turns into an attack-fest, but keep showing up because this day you will…

diy ride fuel

When you’re deep into a hard, long ride, you don’t want to suffer an energy crisis. That’s why you want to keep some fuel on hand.

The more out-of-the-package real food you eat, the stronger you’ll become. Set yourself up for success by cramming your jersey pocket full of these easy recipes, which are proof that tasty, nutritious homemade ride fuel is your new secret weapon to the podium.
