We rode a replacement annual ride as we did not do the Rideau Lakes Tour in June and the GTA Gran Fondo as both were cancelled due to Covid 19.
Maybe we waited a little too late in the season, as starting temperatures were around 3c. There was talk about wearing parkas, but this proved unnecessary as temperatures warmed to an acceptable 15c by the end of the ride.
While the crew was relatively small and we did not have Little Pete and Vernon we had laughs and good steady riding. Lawrence joined us on a classic Moser. It turns out that he has sold his enclosed recumbent. He looked comfortable, despite the literal 10-speed and the ride elevation being over 900M.
The ride was just over 100km’s, with the traditional stop at Musselman’s Lake for an espresso …
We look forward to some good riding outdoors, particularly as the weather turns warm …
Sheldon Ramjit was 2nd in the INDIVIDUAL PURSUIT – ELITE MEN – 4KM.
Sheldon also managed a 3rd place finish in the SCRATCH RACE – ELITE MEN – 15KM.
Well done Sheldon!

2019 was certainly the Year of Youth for the Club. Nine young athletes donned the purple and gold and represented the club at a number of events.
We are proud of their efforts and the results they achieved. As with all success, we need to recognize the coaching, guidance, management and support they received from parents and friends of the club.
Once again we salute these young cyclists and wish them continued success in 2020!
The youth continue to impress with Tyler Foucade finishing 1st in the Under 7 Boys and Adrian Sanchez 3rd and Cion Saney 4th in the Under 11.
In the Masters (70+, 60+, 50+ and Juveniles) event Martin Wharwood was 1st overall.

Today was the 3rd race in the “Come Race” Criterium Series held around Mandela Park.
Sheldon took the win, grabbing the lead and holding it for the last 3 laps!
This was a 30 lap handicap race where cyclists were started in groups with time gaps in between (Masters 40+ and Cat 4; Juniors & Ladies; and then Elite Men). The group which started first set the pace and was considered the front of the race. The groups that followed had to catch the
front of the race in order to have a chance to win any primes, or the overall win. Due to the advantage being given to groups, there were no category prizes, prizes were only awarded to the overall winners.
Congratulations Sheldon, well done!
The Hummingbirds International Cycling Club is grateful to all those who helped make the St. Christopher Rally Track Meet at the Irwin Park Sports Complex a resounding success.
Friday’s event was not only a success as a cycling event, but also represented an opportunity to showcase community spirit as many from the St Christopher community came out to support the event.
The meet provided an opportunity for all to participate, from those < 7 to 70+. Thanks to all of the cyclists!
