Meet Tina! She was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes a few years ago. Inspired by a documentary on high intensity exercise and health, she decided to check out CYKL and incorporate our classes a part of  healthier lifestyle.

When she first started at CYKL she would always put herself in the back row at the back of the class. Tina didn’t grow up riding on a bike, so she was intimidated when she first started here. However, since January, she has gained confidence, improved her fitness and now feels comfortable sitting in the front row during Kim’s 75 min Endurance class!

Thanks for sharing your story Tina! Keep up the great work!

Rider of the Week

Good Friday is the first race of the Ontario Cycling season and CYKL Junek Velodrome women were out having some fun! The race was in Ancaster and was 79km, and Laura placed 3rd!

Mini Race Report!

Laura and I made a deal to ride hard and most importantly have a good time out there. The first race of the season is always a bit hairy, so staying safe was a priority also. Two Rise Racing cycling team mates ended up getting away from the pack, so I decided to work hard by trying to attack a few times (the attacks failed, but hey I tried!) and then I went to the front and worked with a few other ladies to keep the pace somewhat fast and steady for 3 laps. On the second last lap it was decided that Laura, who has excellent TT power, should try a solo attack to the finish line for 3rd place.

Surprisingly it worked! Laura attacked on the final lap and TT’ed 12km to take 3rd place. With Laura up the road my work was done. I sat up and soft pedalled to the finish line!

The next race for the team will be Calabogie on April 19th. Congratulations to Laura for getting on the podium and thank you to our sponsors CYKL, Junek Velodromes, Velofix and Wheels of Bloor! Without you there would be no team!
