C3 Saturday Outdoor Bike Rides

New Location:

We are going to do all outdoor Saturday rides in 2014 from the Lloyd Wilson Centennial Arena in Inglewood starting April 19.

Here are the multiple reasons:

  • We are trying to build a bigger relationship with our bike store and sponsor (Caledon Hills Cycling). They are going to service us and also help perhaps get some new additional riders for the club.
  • The rail trail is right there 100m from the Inglewood parking lot.
  • The general store for fluid/fast food is right there.
  • We are going to organize some BBQs after some rides right in the Caledon Hills Cycling Store parking lot.
  • It's as easy to go from the swim quarry to Inglewood arena (or even easier).
  • It will open up a few different rides we have not done in the past.
  • We can still ride east back to Hwy 27 and some of those rides, we are now just starting at a different location.


  • Arrive between 9:00am - 9:15am or as early as you need to get ready.
  • Bike start at 9:30am.
  • In the later spring, the C3 open water swims will happen before the rides.

Lloyd Wilson Centennial Arena:

Address: 15549 McLaughlin Road, Inglewood, ON L7C 1J5

After extensive assessment by the current C3 board and coaching staff, a number of very exciting modifications are being added to the 2014 programs.

Starting in Jan 2014, C3 workouts will have an additional level of coaching at all key training sessions for the entire year. Part of the new era, C3 has contracted Personal Best (PB) to supply coaches at all key 2014 club workouts. This includes all of your old favourites (Sean Bechtel, Hans Porten, Bob Knuckey, Caron & Barrie Shepley, and Trudy Dixon) and additional coaches added over the next 12 months.

New to 2014, C3 memberships will include at no extra cost: group fitness testing, Mega Days, Open Water Swim Series, Simulation Days, Swim Quarry Coaching, Facebook, Twitter, and an interactive website.

C3 coaches will work with all club members to help them plan their 2014 season. Club members with personal goals, whether it's weight loss, making an age group team, hitting the finish of a 10k or triathlon, are much more likely to be successful. C3 coaches have two goal planning days organized in 2014; Jan 13th at 7:20pm - 9:00pm and a second day in May 2014 TBD, to help club members strategically plan their upcoming year with key dates, workouts and methods to ensure a successful year ahead. Plan on being at the important Monday evening Jan 13th C3 Kick-Off Night to meet the new board, get all of the dates, and key club sessions that are organized to help you achieve your 2014 goals. Even if you don't yet have 2014 goals, C3 coaches have many exciting new events and projects you may have not considered before. Those who can't make the Jan 13th planning night, coaches will send you the planning information so you can do some of this on your own.

RSVP TO C3 Barrie Shepley (barrie@personalbest.ca) to confirm a seat at this important JAN 13TH 2014 planning night.

In addition to the individual 2014 season planning, board members will take a few minutes to share their future visions for the club and ensure that your input is being considered in future club planning.


Those who have purchased their 2014 club membership will have these free group testing days included in their C3 membership. Testing days will be Mon Jan 20th and a second day in May (TBD). Fitness tests will be field tests to give members understanding of their starting fitness levels. Individuals who can make the free fitness testing evening should RSVP to barrie@personalbest.ca for more details.


The ten-week weight loss contest is free to all 2014 C3 members. Each week those in the contest will get a free newsletter to help them achieve their weight loss goals. Club members will be on the honour system, weighing themselves at the beginning of the contest and periodically through the 10-weeks and again at the final weigh-in on Sun Mar 23rd.

Kinetico has graciously committed to donating $10.00 for every pound you lose to the C3 High Performance Elite Team to help them with equipment and travel in 2014. In addition, you are eligible for prizes based on every 5 pounds that you lose over the ten weeks.

If you are interested in the 10-week weight loss contest (free if you are a 2014 paid member), you must email barrie@personalbest.ca to have get officially registered. The contest starts Mon Jan 13th.


For the first time in 20 years, Triathlon Ontario is hosting the 2014 Indoor Provincial Triathlon Championships at McMaster University. C3 intends on sending a team of members to participate at this fun, indoor event.

The format is simple. Participants see how far they can go in 15 minutes in a 25m pool, how far they can bike in 15 minutes on indoor electronic bikes, and how far they can run in 15min on an indoor 200m track. Participants score points the farther they go in each event. The nice thing is you don't have to even have a bike since they are provided by the race organizers. Because the entire event is indoors, it's safe, easy to do, and fun. The C3 High Performance Team will be in attendance racing. Click here to register now.
