Re: The Rules

The "reverse rotating pace line" is pretty much standard for the B1 rides after Hollywood. I suspect that's due to the prevailing winds along there, which, when they're blowing, are blowing more often than not from the SW (scroll down on this page to see the wind direction for the last month). It se...

Re: In the "unclear on the concept" department

I applaud her stubborness. Those right/through lanes are a raw deal for cyclists, since if you split the lanes and cosy up to the left/through lane, there could be a car going straight through on your right by the time the light changes. Awkward. If you scooch over the the right, the car directly be...

Re: Pro-city Garage Sale

So, I was wondering, is it better to put the toilet paper roll on so the paper comes over the top, or out the bottom? The answer to this is already well established in the relevant literature. To summarize: over the top is preferable EXCEPT in the case where it is accessible to a cat or small child...

Re: Tripleshot takes Hurricane Ridge

It looks like I won't be able to make it to Hurrican RIdge after all (sick kid). If anyone wants my ticket/slot, let me know by sending me a PM.

Specialized Allez Elite Compact Double - 52 cm

For sale is a barely used, 2009 Allez Eilte, size 'S', aka 52cm. This bike was bought new and ridden a handful of times by my wife a few summers ago. Me and my wife are expecting our second child in little while and since it's likely this very nice bike will just languish in the basement even longer...

Re: Rule # 33 - Shave your Guns

And sharks use lasers. On their heads. And can you imagine a shark with hairy legs?! I can, and although hairy legs (especially combined with a head-mounted laser) could turn a shark into a fearsome and intimidating land predator, it would be awkward and slow in its natural aquatic environment, and ...

Re: Mt Doug HC

I'm number 1...1. If anyone wants any tips on how to achieve last place in the B category, just ask me about it on the next ride. The long and short of it, ride less in July than you did during the dark, wet month of February. I made a last ditch effort to get into some sort of shape for this by goi...

Re: Sizing

Mine is too big too, but since I'd already worn and washed it (in my enthusiasm to wear it for the Tour de Victoria), I assumed it wasn't eligible. And on top of that, I'm probably too late. But just in case, it's a large, short-sleeved race cut, full zip . Fits much larger than my old large race cu...

My apologize the Brett and Brent. I mistakenly referred to Brent. It was Brett Schofield that I rode with or rather that helped drag me along! So it is Brett in the photo! Like Peter, I also underwent a name-change for the Tour de Victoria. Outside of the Tour, people call me Brent, but during the ...
