The kids made this promo video. Don’t worry, there’s a ride around for the dirt pile. Right after you go through the greenhouse.

Room to rip between the vineyard and the gap in the fence we found.

The sheep here have some new growth with the recent rain. So they're in the mood to share their paddock with you.

This year the route goes through central saanich, so more of this, fewer hills and rock.

These miniature horses might be peeking through the fence at you on the new single track we built. But they can't see over it.

Sunday: Take a kid mountain biking-cobble hill

One sure way to turn kids on to cycling is doing it with other kids. (Surely this is the founding philosophy of Tripleshot?).

This is organized by super volunteer Yvonne Mendel of Topaz bike Park, SIMBS and GVCC.

Wanted to borrow, 2 cross bikes for 2 weeks

Hi all: The youth program has two new riders looking to try 'cross, but not quite ready to buy a bike until they try it. Approx 52 and 54cm sizes needed. Ideally I'd like to pick up the bikes tonight or tomorrow night for Tuesday-Friday practices. I will wash, lube and tune the bikes to your satisfa...

Re: Looking for a gate installer for crossfondo fences

Thanks Norm. I'll try Wayne.

I like stiles too, but these fences are 6 footer deer fences, and the owners aren't accepting regular public access. But a lockable chain link gate would do the trick.

Cheers

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

Thanks Mary. I know from doing this it’s a huge number of steps that’s not really visible from the outside. Thank you.

Looks like some folks are looking for this in the gear order forum. Maybe post there too, or direct them here?

Looking for a gate installer for crossfondo fences

The route this year crosses some high fences, and rather than ask the owners to cut them, I thought it might be better to offer to install a lockable neighbour gate. Anyone know a fence supplier/installer who might be interested in helping out? Each point would be accessible by vehicle.
