Re: GoPro's from Sept.8 A ride

Nice work Martin!

I'm sure you also took the time to remind the rest of the A riders that if they choose to continue to riding with us that they should order some TSC kit. :wink:

Re: Hour of Power - results / records

My UVic lectures are apparently sometimes referred by my students as being an "Hour of Dower", but I guess that's a different thing. That said, I do speak very fast - a mile a minute supposedly. And it does take place within the Ring Road after all. :wink:

Re: Tripleshot Code of Conduct

Has the ethos of Tripleshot, which I admire, become a formality? Hi Marcus; Quite the opposite, in fact. Rather than being merely a formality - an implicit assumption upon joining the club - agreeing to the TSC ethos has now become a rock-solid requirement of anyone who wants to ride with us. As on...

Alternative new slogan: We may not be fast, but we're old and slow.

Re: Group Riding during covid

We have done some consultation, but with real medical doctors, not with "doctors" of atmospheric science and other such hobbies. :wink: Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!!! Keeping in mind, of course, that I'm the doctor with the irrepressible zooplankton hobby. :wink: That aside Martin, I agree with the rest of wha...

No worries Rob...I was actually writing on behalf of my long-suffering summer road-bike, which has being going above and beyond the call of duty lately. :wink:

Re: Looking for input on weight loss from riding.

Hi Rob...I share your pain - sort of. :wink: Hi all, So one of the unintended consequences of not riding these past couple months is that I’ve gone from a large number of lbs to an even larger number of lbs. I thought I had levelled out at that very large number - a weight that I really hoped would...

Re: Fairfield Starbucks

Good point Joe. We've occasionally used the Cook Street Bucky's in the past (most recently for the Winter Solstice Ride), and it has the added advantage that it opens at 5:30am in case anyone needs LOTS of coffee before the Sunday ride. :wink:
