Re: Saturday July 20 Hector trail maintenance

We got it done! Big thanks to Daniel, Craig, Todd, and of course Raven and Pazza for support and patrol. Heres’s ts youth parent Craig with a long reach for blackberries, and Todd posing with the water lilies after. Cafe Mosi coffee and snack was almost as good as the swim. D49A07E6-4FD8-4581-9B3E-6...

Re: Youth race, 8-11 yrs, VCL Windsor Sunday 8:30

Got an 8 year old girl who wants to try but only has mtb. Anyone got a 24” road or cross bike with slicks that you’d loan for an hour?

Re: Wanted: 56cm road frame

I have a trek ultegra bike that was donated. Would like to swap for a small (46-50 cm) cross bike or frame I can use as a loaner.

No bikes floating around the youth program right now, but several kids, but 2 boys and 2 girls 9-11. We find having peers is what motivates most kids (something we learned from the coffee culture of ts :)).

Re: JayLam selected for World Track Championships

Canadian women also fourth. A bit disappointing for them, they were three seconds slower in their medal round than in the second ride.

I guess they need Sarah Van Dam to move up from the nexgen program, and give them a boost ;).
