October 5 - 11 Weekly Update

Cheers to Healthy Thanksgiving Eating

This weekend the off-season meets holiday season. Don’t let all your hard work go to waste, letting some pounds gather around your waist (sorry, couldn’t help myself throwing the pun in there).

Resolve to get through all the holidays this year with a Holiday Eating Plan. That means creating a set of eating rules in your mind before heading to any big mealtime get-together. With Thanksgiving on the table this weekend, test-drive your best intentions.

You won’t go far wrong beginning with Michael Pollan’s Plan: Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. (Actually, that could be your rule for everyday eating, not just through the holidays.)

Think of your eating rules another way. If vegetarians can define themselves by a rule of never eating flesh – and live every day by that rule – can’t you create an equally self-empowering rule (or set of rules) for yourself when you go a-partying?

Roger’s Harvest Ride Only 2 Weeks Away

On Sunday, October 21, bring out your Mountain / ‘Cross / BMX / Fat Bike / for a ride in the Blackfoot Grazing Reserve. We’ll be starting from the Waskahegan staging area just off RR210 at 11:00 am.

If you don’t have an off-road capable bike, you can borrow one of the club’s ‘cross bikes. Quantity and sizes are limited, so it’s first come first served. To arrange pickup, send an email to club President Ed Heacock president@velocitycyclingclub.ca

Please remember, this year the ride is a low-key club-only event. Others are welcome, but will need to sign out a club membership to participate.

Weekly Ride Schedule Summary

Maintaining your Cyclist’s physique needs not just your Holiday Eating Plan, but a couple of weekend rides too! Weather permitting, we’ll be riding both Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday departs from Colchester Elementary at 11am and heads south and east.

The Sunday Ride meets at 11am in the parking lot of The Enjoy Centre to see what’s left of the fall colours.

Hopefully Wednesday will still offer you the Midweek Cyclocross Race at Goldbar Park. Now starting at 6:30pm.



Champions are not the people who never fail, but the people who never quit.
