Re: Jan 19 - Post Snow Ride

Did you say Cave or Cage? Regardless, I'll be there at Starshmucks to start this adventure but if you make us climb that Skirt Hill one more time, Ron, I'll help John choke you..

Re: Friday, January 17, 2020: coefficient of friction?

We have to ride tomorrow. What if it was our last day on earth?

Suffice to say, I will try to make it to Oak Bay High. If I get there and no one joins me, I'll proceed to Cook Street Mocha

Re: Wednesday, January 15 - SNOWcross!

This glorious morning has given rise to an interview request from CBC. Tomorrow around 7:20 I'll be speaking with the local CBC morning show about what it's like commuting in the snow. (Thanks Megan) I have no idea what I am going to say, and so here's to shooting from the hip... https://media.giphy...

Yes, yes, and yes.

Re: Sunday epic?

Rob, you should know that Ron tried to take me up Skirt Hill on Boxing Day. We got lost, misdirected, heard gunfire and banjoes playing in the distance and just when I was starting to think if I was man enough for cannibalism, we found our way back to civilization. So beware.

Re: Snowcross! Friday the 3rd

For those not on the ride. "Mallet" not "Mullet" though it is easy to mistake those two concepts.

Re: Boxing day ride

Ron, you missed an epic and Very Silly Solstice ride yesterday so I'd be happy to join you for a rip on Boxing day, to regale you with all the silliness you missed. If no one else posts by morning, just spin by my house by 7:30 and we can go forth on our adventure... If others post, where shall we m...

Oh plus noting the proposed route into my dark past we will all get to listen to Johnny Fyfe retell my Royal Road’s cadet hazing stories with much more flavour than the originals. 🤫

Re: The Other Sunday Cross Ride

I’m keen on the idea of a ride that turns out to be way longer than expected and the wind beneath my wings is me imagining Geoff’s puppy chewing the shit out of everything he owns.
Oh I soar...😝
