I know it's a bit early to be collecting nominees for next year's Post of the Year, but this photo is just begging for a caption competition.

Re: Purchase your 2019 Tripleshot Membership

There used to be a time when we awarded TSC gloating points. Perhaps time to reinstate? :wink:

Early morning temperatures and black ice

Check out this morning's temperature record from the weather station at Quadra Elementary: Quadra school temp.png Just a reminder that we're getting into that time of year where the coldest temperatures often occur nearly an hour after sunrise (i.e. when we're heading home after coffee). This mornin...

Re: Why did YOU join Tripleshot?

The most important post in the thread is Norm's - wherein he's lay out club's founding principles (developed over coffee, natch).

Amen,
JD

P.S. Did I mention that I still blame John Taylor for convincing me that riding a road bike at 6:00am was a good idea?

Re: Sunday C - we're back!

BB;

Link doesn't seem to work, at least for me. Just takes me to Strava, but not to your actual route map. Ditto for last week's link.

Re: Tripleshot T-shirt?

"The most important person on the ride is everyone else" It has to be this one, which has become the club's unofficial motto. I believe the original quote was actually "The most important person on a group ride is everyone else", but it's close enough and it captures the Tripleshot ethos. JD P.S. I...

Re: Tripleshot T-shirt?

Hi Rob....thanks very much for stepping up to organize things. I believe Geoff Wong organized the last t-shirt order several years ago, but not sure which company he used. Before we get too far down this road we should consider whether the existing design is still the one we want. For example, the t...

Re: Cross Group Size

Surely the simplest solution is that like every other TSC group that leaves the parking lot, the cross group(s) should just ride on its own from the start. I'd try to find a suitably gross parasitism gif but I've just finished my lunch. :wink:

Re: TRIPLESHOT KIT * STORE IS OPEN & Kit try-on*

Hi Norm...that was the only item I was looking to find, too, but to no avail. Also, is it just me, or do the bib-less knickers that are on offer seem barely long enough to even count as knickers?

Bump bump.

Thank you.
Hey Martin - it looks like you have at least two volunteers who are offering to help with organizing/receiving/distributing the kit order. Thanks guys!

Re: Sunday C - we're back!

They offer same-day registration before the ride. $25 for either 25km, 64km, or 100km.

Re: Sunday C - we're back!

Can't this week...I'm doing the Russ Hays Ride for Hospice. Signed up for the 100km option, and offered to be a ride leader. They accepted my offer, but relegated me (and Tim Gijzen) to lead the 25km route!
