Exhale Ride…October 5th.

September 15, 2014



Join us for the Exhale Ride on October 5th in Metamora at 10:30am. The ride  supports JDRF, the leading global organization funding Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) research,  and is promoted by Team O2/Cadieux Bicycle Club, and Riders4Research.   The ride was started by Brian Hords 10 years ago to  connect with the Detroit cycling community,  build awareness of T1D, and give back to the T1D community.
This is a dirt road ride in “horse country”. Metamora is located between Oxford and Lapeer, and it’s a great scenic area to enjoy the fall colors.   It’s about 50 mins to 1 hr  drive from  West Bloomfield, Farmington, Bloomfield, Troy, etc. The ride is 99% dirt roads, so you will need a hybrid, cross or mountain bike.  There are 20 Mile and 40 Mile routes that will be marked. Maps will be provided.     Food will provided before and after, and at  a rest stop at the halfway point.  You can make this a family ride, or ride with a small group at your own pace or hang with the hammer heads  (A and B ride groups).
Minimum donation is $20.   You can get the details and register at www.exhaleride.com

Waterford training race report.

April 5, 2014

Our 4/5 and elite team both did great today at the Waterford training race. James Hill and Chuck Morgan got 3rd and 4th in the C race. The rest of the team blocked.

The Elite team controlled the A race. Came in with a plan to get someone in the winning break. Ended up getting Mike Dega and Brian in the break. Mike got 4th and Brian got 6th. Great team work by all blocking and covering.
