Beans n' Barley CX

On October 26th the good folks over at Terrascape Racing are putting on one of the best CX races of the year, the Beans n' Barley CX. They are looking for volunteers to help out with the race. It's a great race to spectate with jumps, fly over/under and sometimes snow. If anyone is interested in helping them out on the day send an email to beansnbarleycx{at}

If you can't help out then hopefully you can race!

Movember Awareness Cyclists, ride into and out of Calgary.

Club, I got this email after a phone call from Darren Engles, who works at First Energy, who help us out with our jerseys. If possible, think about putting these dates on your calendar and we'll get you more info as the time approaches.


Hey Trev,
Great chatting with you today.  Here is the email notifying me about three brave guys riding bikes (+1 girl in an RV) from Vancouver to Toronto to raise awareness for Movember.  I am hoping that there are some friendly Speed Theory riders (I have also asked Erik and the Dead Goats) that might want to ride out, meet them, and cycle into Calgary on Thursday, October 24th.  They plan to leave Calgary on the morning of Saturday, October 26th, and this might be also a fantastic time to get a bit of support from Speed Theory and Dead Goats.

 I will try to get you better information, but this is the best I have at this moment.

 Thanks for any help Speed Theory can provide.  I am unfortunately away that weekend with my wife, so I will not be available.

(Here are a 'few more details')

Hi Erik and Trev,

I have a few more details regarding the three guys riding from Vancouver to Toronto to bring awareness to Movember.  They will be in Canmore on the night of Wednesday, October 23 and will depart from Canmore around 10 am on October 24.  Would any Dead Goat and Speed Theory riders like to meet them in Canmore to ride into Calgary on October 24th?  I guess an alternative would be to ride out from Calgary and meet them somewhere on the highway.

Also, they will depart Calgary on Saturday, October 26 at 9:00 am.  The planned departure place is Ridley’s Cycle in Kensington.  Trek is a main sponsor for the ride, and therefore, Ridley being a Trek dealer is a logical starting point.  It’s also fairly convenient.  A support ride out of the city would also be pretty awesome and helpful, if possible.

 I know there is a race that weekend, and people are busy, but I still wanted to check if there are any riders willing to provide a bit of support.

Thank you.

Trilobite is going to lose a few more lbs this weekend

The Furnace Creek 508: The Great American Bike Race

That's code for Tom Kenny racing Furnace Creek 508 this weekend. While we are out doing our casual spin or a bit of cross, Tom and his crew will be racing in the hardest bike race ever.

Lots of ways to keep up with his progress here: somewhere there anyway, I'm sure you will find the live timing.

Tom has his own personal website dedicated to his and his crew's experience here.

Good luck Tom!
