You're invited to Corsa Cycle's Nutcrackin' Sweet Toy Ride & Open House.
We are starting off the day right with a Christmas toy ride. Meet at the shop at 1:00pm on Sunday, December 15th, bring your mountain bike and kit, and bring a toy or a non-perishable food item for donation. All proceeds will be passed on to Squamish Christmas Community Care.
And for cyclists there’s nothing more rewarding than giving or receiving a gift from Corsa during the winter season. There is something for every kind of rider! Come to the Corsa Open House and get those gifts for the cyclists in your life. Starts at 3:00pm after the Toy Ride. Christmas cheer provided!
After such a dry, dusty, action-packed summer, prep your bike for next season by giving it the love it deserves. What's not included in this package would be the shortlist, as we will lovingly dis-assemble your ride to the main frame and rebuild it from scratch.

In the spirit of a good adventure, I decided to mix things up from my normal Spring Training, and head to an area of Canada where you are not meant to ride your bike outside during the springtime. Very excited to load up my Rocky Mountain Solo road bike into my new Evoc travelling bike bag, I jumped on a flight to Quebec City with a good amount of Spandex, and Honey Stinger gels to keep me going. I arrived to a balmy – 2 degrees with overcast skies, and hit up the local bike shop to ask where was a good 4-hour ride I could do. In broken English I received the answer, that most roads still had snow on them… Great! I headed out ready to battle the elements and ride out of Quebec City to Mont-Sainte-Anne, where I was sure it would be warmer. Alas, 50 km into my ride the heavens opened up, and it began puking snow. With 70 km still to go, you better believe it was not my most memorable experience on a bike. Have you ever seen a grown man cry? I made it back to where I was staying hypothermic, but in once piece to a lovely picture from my good buddy of the sun in Squamish, with the caption “How’s the North Pole?” Hmmm… Back to the training drawing board.
I found an indoor computrainer cycling facility called Velo Concept Performance, and proceeded to make it my home for the next week. I met some super hardcore Quebecois road racers, and did the majority of my training with them. These guys meant business, and it was go time all the time while we were on the computrainers. I would have rather been riding my mountain bike on Squamish trails, but I couldn’t deny that I was getting in some hard specific training. Eventually the weather took a turn for the better in Quebec standards, and my new indoor training buddies planned a ride outside the day before I was leaving. We did a beautiful 150 km hilly ride throughout Quebec City, and the surrounding countryside. Although the theme of the day seemed to be “... lets see if we can crack the BC mountain biker” I really enjoyed the beautiful scenery, sharp punchy hills, and the good riding company. All in all my solo Quebec training camp was a success!
Sitting here in the Toronto Airport, waiting for my connecting flight back
to Vancouver, I am thinking about the trails back home, and how excited I am for
another season of racing and all the adventures that come along with it!
Greg over and out.
