"It's important to know that at the end of the day it's not the medals you remember. What you remember is the process -- what you learn about yourself by challenging yourself, the experiences you share with other people, the honesty the training demands -- those are things nobody can take away from you whether you finish twelfth or you're an Olympic Champion."
--- Silken Laumann, Canadian Olympian


This Saturday, April 30 don’t miss out on one of the best races in the Ottawa Valley ! Run or cycle at the 20th Diefenbooker Classic in Carp!

I just want to add to the comment about Aero Bars. Folks should be using their common sense here. I would find it arrogant and pretty selfish to think that a cyclist training for a competition thinks it's appropriate to be down in their bars while riding on a municipal pathway. Ross gave a lot of examples as to why this is dangerous and I agree. A leisurely, Spirited ride just to stay in shape is more than acceptable on any pathway but TRAINING in my opinion, is not. You ride faster and harder, you're more focused on YOUR goals and have no time or inclination to deal with a busy pathway that welcomes walkers, runners, joggers, kids, dogs, wheel chairs and so on.

That said, common sense. Obviously a 5 or 6am ride on a pathway would be fine as there is little to no traffic but if you have no choice but to train during peak hours, do it on the road.

 Jean-Pierre Thibault   (General Comments)

Lots of good points have been made; let me emphasize one: please give a wide berth when passing! Last weekend I was cycling behind my 5-year old daughter on the Sir John A path. A pair of cyclists riding side-by-side passed her within an inch! My daughter wasn't exactly riding a straight line, but she was well within her half of the path.

Please don't expect anyone (especially kids!) to hold a straight line. The path is quite wide. You CAN wait until there is no incoming traffic and give a wide berth. Cars are supposed to do this when passing us on the road; please consider applying the same courtesy on the path.

When I confronted the cyclists regarding this close call, they said that they thought they gave my daughter lots of space. I think that if they had been passed by a car that closely, they would have been livid.
