Laps at Beacon Hill

With Beacon Hill open again - and the fun of doing the laps and the sprint at the end happening - it is time to re-establish again what the rules are.

I believe the last time we agreed that when your laps are done you don’t tag on to other groups. Is that the case?

Xmas donations of children's bikes

HI All, Another bike club in town is doing a holiday bike drive. I thought this might be of interest to TS members whose kids have grown out of their bikes. They have a fancy poster, but I can't figure out how to load it... Paula SPANDADS HOLIDAY BIKE DRIVE Please help our bike club collect and refu...

Re: TH bike at group rides

The question got two opposite answers. Both have great rationales - safety and inclusivity, which are both critical parts of Tripleshot. Perhaps this is something that needs to go back to the board to discuss and make a concrete decision and put in the ride information section. With Tripleshot growi...

Re: Race Games Idea

Thanks Matt and Breanna!

It WAS a lot of fun. There is something about being pursued or pursuing that adds a certain intense level of excitement and pizazz to the regular Friday morning ride. I’m super keen to do this again!

If you are thinking about it, but not sure - try it!

Re: Race Games Idea

Sounds like a lot of fun!! I remember doing some race games with Lister a few years ago on Tuesday and Friday rides and they were a blast - in a painful kind of way. It is a great idea to do the race games separately with different levels of B- groups. I look forward to when it is B3s time! And I wi...

Re: Careful How You Ride When Wearing TSC Kit Please

Speaking of people riding like jerks on bikes (reading between the lines of Barton’s nice and diplomatic post), my partner remarked to me the other day that he saw a cyclist riding like a jerk in regards to pedestrians. The cyclist was riding down oak bay ave with what is now the old kit on and they...

New Kit - women’s size small vest wanted

If you ordered a size small vest and it doesn’t fit -I could be interested. My medium is too big, not sure if a small will fit but would like to try. we could either trade or if that doesn’t work for you, I could buy it from you.

Thanks Paula

Re: New Kit Order: Spring 2018

Thanks to all that have been involved with the new kit. What an incredible amount of work. Now I understand why there were lots of moans when the idea of a new kit was tossed around! Vests. There were 2 vests that we were able to try on. The Epic and the Epic Pro. The one listed in the store is the ...

Re: The Kit Vote is Live

I agree with John. Personally, two of the designs I would order kit from for sure, the third maybe not... So I would have to hedge my bets and wait until others had ordered and I get a chance to see the kit.. Sorry, I like risk, but kit is not cheap and I am. And it would be nice to have TS kit in t...

In communicating with Martin about this.. it sounds like the best plan to move something forward is for those women who are interested to get together and discuss what we'd like to do, and what kind of support we might be looking/hoping for (eg. training plan, coaching, new bike, special skins suits...

Re: anyone interested in riding in a smaller group this wint

The problem with relying on a. C ride is that certain slackers do not show up or show up late and join Oversized B groups and one ends up doing a ‘group ride’ on their own. So - where are the smart Bs that want to ride in a smaller group in winter and where are the Cs? That could be a song. Alan,can...

anyone interested in riding in a smaller group this winter?

I am feeling more cautious these days with the number of deer on the road (this morning there were at least 3 right on the road) and getting older and wiser (or maybe just because I am still feeling the aches from a crash 2 years ago). Although riding in big groups is fun and faster, I would feel sa...
