Re: Helmets

And then there's this: https://hovding.com/, assuming of course that (i) you have $550 to throw around, and (ii) you don't mind wearing a 650 g horse collar.

Right...because everyone knows that Rapha is an affordable option for your average club rider.

Re: Aggressively fast cyclist wins race against no one

I've long maintained that the cops should bring a speed gun out on the Goose some morning or afternoon. I'm sure they'd nab a large number of people (including some in TSC kit) who think that their daily commute along a multi-use trail is actually a time-trial practice. :evil:

Re: Anyone interested in racing as a team this year?

Well said Martin! The idea has definitely been floated several times in recent years (John Taylor comes to mind), and so it would be great to see something actually come of it this time around. >If you want to race with the fastest guys in town, this might not be your cup of tea.

Re: Sunday Earlier Slower Longer!

The weather looks cool but dry for tomorrow morning. Anyone up for a 85-90km counter-clockwise version of the traditional peninsula loop, leaving Uptown Bucky's at 7:00am? C+ pace, as per usual.

As Barton is away this weekend, we will avoid hills wherever possible. :wink:

Re: Sunday Earlier Slower Longer!

The weather for tomorrow morning is looking pretty shitty right now. So unless it changes significantly overnight, I don't think I'll be out.

Re: 2018 Tripleshot Christmas Party - Save the Date!

Wikipedia defines a Potluck as a "communal gathering where each guest or group contributes a different, often homemade dish of food to be shared." Sounds yummy, right? Well, at present, only about 20 people have signed up to bring food. The Tripleshot Xmas party typically draws 80+ people. So, unles...

For sale: SealSkinz Halo Neoprene overshoes

Just took delivery of a pair of these SealSkinz neoprene overshoes with kevlar reinforced toes. I bought them for commuting - partly because of the neat little red LED light in each of the heels. Size Large is advertised to fit sizes EU 43-46, but there's no way they'll fit my 46 Shimano shoes. Woul...

Looking to borrow a trainer

Hi there...

Looking to borrow a trainer - just for a week or two. Michaella is thinking of buying one to use over the winter, but would like to try one out first just to see whether she likes using it.

Email me at dower@uvic.ca if you would be willing to loan one to me.

Thanks,
J.
