Re: Friday July 12th

Looks like I'll be crossing all alone. Well that's not so bad--
I'm ok at riding all alone. Clearly nobody loves me....

Friday July 12th

Who's into a rip Friday morning? With Rolf and John away, there's no reason for the mice not to continue to play. Especially when there might be new patches of mud out there. Ron, O bearded one? Mashby? Dolly? Suggest a route and I'll be there. Friday coffee is also essential. https://media.giphy.co...

Re: Saturday sufferfest

I'm into Otters. Let's do that. We can decide at Starbucks.

Re: Saturday sufferfest

How much suffering is involved?
I don't want to be left out there like someone's puppet.
Ok, I'm in.

By a 'few' I hope Ron and I will suffice.
And for Rolf, always an offer of food to tempt him...

Re: Olympic Adventure Trail: Ride Report

I am so jealous, O Bearded One. I am also worried that you might have catapulted us into a newer Cross Bracket. Then the future of breathlessly trying to follow Rolf will be less than exhilarating? Hmmmm.... gotta rethink this new MAGA thing... https://media.giphy.com/media/isptpNo1dRKrS/giphy.gif

I have an air compressor you can come over and borrow anytime.

Re: TTT at UVic, June 20, 2019

This is all good, and very helpful except this: "I have witnessed them speed (60km/h+ in a 40km/h zone)" If they have witnessed me going "60+" when the posted speed limit is 40, I hope they get their speed guns checked... just saying. Unless of course I made myself super aero, like Pete Lawless... h...

Ron, while I like your beard and your sense of adventure I only have one thing
to say to you on picking a non-viable weekend for me and my two amigos.

Once the city has fixed Norm's sewers, I hope they'll consider some of these mind-blowing cycling infrastructure projects

Re: Wanted: 56cm road frame

I've got a 55cm road frame--Titanium Litespeed Sabre. It's been my winter bike for many years, but being titanium, it looks brand new. It has no decals because it looks better naked. I have realized that it is simply too big for me. I need something smaller. I would trade it for something smaller--a...

Re: Wed June 12 farm-x. I see your hill and I raise you HILLS

Mashby, I'm interested and would hope to keep you company but that makes for too long a ride for this hombre on a Wednesday morning.
If I were to accompany you, I'd be late for work, and probably harshly judged....

Eco Underground parking for bikes

Just when you thought we've approached the outer limits of cycling infrastructure, there's New Age bike parking. What do you folks think of something like this for Victoria, an automated, seismically-sound underground bike parking facility? We are discussing this at the next City of Victoria Active ...

Re: Friday, June 7 - (Pearl) Jam to UVic

Eddie Vedder's joining us on a cross ride? Hmm. That's too bad because since you are shamelessly name dropping, on lunch today I ran into Rick Nielson of Cheap Trick in Murchies. Since he was probably the rockingest guitarist from the late 70's I asked him if he'd like to ride with us on Friday and ...
