Re: Holiday Ride?

Louise --I see no one has posted and it's nearly 11pm but I'll meet you at the Oak Bay High school and do the usual Friday ride with you and whatever other lurkers show up. It's raining right now, so the roads will be wet tomorrow and I'll be on my winter bike (fenders) Rolf will likely be there too...

Re: April 7th - Big Ride to Harbour View

Rolf, how about we meet up to drink coffee 6:45ish and gossip about John at Starbucks--leave there by 7 and then join up with the others at the Switchbridge by 7:30. Then when your menopausal hot-flashes kick in, you can turn around and go home, maybe take part in some kind of ancient baseball cerem...

All Ages & Abilities Cycling Network

As part of the City of Victoria's Active Transportation Advisory Committee, I've just become aware of a few things coming up that might be of interest to cycling commuters. This is news to me as much as it is to you, (and please don't blame me if you think these plans are really stoopid!) but there ...

Re: Big Ride to Harbour View

Rolf, if you haven't been to big "Little League opening ceremony day" it's as boring as watching paint dry, with dull speeches, special thanks to our sponsors, yada, yada, yada. Just saying I'm with John here. Your kids may appreciate you being there on opening day, but ultimately they will grow up ...

Louise, sorry I'm going to miss your Birthday ride. I'm off on a plane to Boston early Wednesday.
Not too late to send you a birthday gif, though...

Re: Helmets

There's actually been a Cochrane Review on the subject, and while this is somewhat dated, I don't believe the guy in the video who asserted that there is definitive proof that helmet laws reduce cycling. It's never been properly studied. https://www.cochrane.org/CD005401/INJ_bicycle-helmet-legislati...

Re: Any crossers riding Friday (mar 22)?

Rob, I'm going to ride a road bike tomorrow, only for fear of getting lost without Rolf.
John also seems MIA.
Why don't you join us? In any event, see you at coffee.

Re: Friday, March 15 - Wonger's Wait to Francis King

Let' do it, trimming bits as needed to join the roadies for coffee. I'd like to see Jill as I've got gossip she needs to hear, unfiltered by Buns'O'Steel. You do know that the Ides of March is the day the blades were out--back then when assassination was considered a good way to deal with an overly ...
