Dallas Road bike lane

Just wondering if TSC plans to provide input on the proposed bike lane along Dallas Road:

I think a club / group riding perspective could be useful.

Re: Lugged frame repair/winter bike wanted

Jesse at http://www.wildwoodcycles.ca/

I would recommend. Think he specializes in steel, but he was able to help me with my Ti frame. Very reasonable.

Poll - longest wait time for frame warranty

Hi, Wanted some input for those of you unlucky enough, "How long have you had to wait to get a frame replaced under warranty?" I just passed the 4 month mark, and it's looking like December at the earliest for me! (Kona, MTB - warranty accepted, no disputes). This seems like too long, but maybe I ha...

As for the ride, I'll have family coming in from out of town, so it looks like I won't be able to make it...but I will be coming out for more group rides, and ...

Re: Big Loop Ride Sunday 19th July 2015

Alternatively, we could do the loop in reverse, riding up the Malahat and skipping the ferry altogether!
I did this route some time ago and it worked fine, although I'm not an expert on prevailing winds, etc.

Re: A Great Day on the Big Loop

+1 on all Mike's comments, including the reverse loop. Big thanks to Marcus and Nancy for the support, couldn't imagine the ride without it. And to Mark, Paul and John D for all the planning and coordination, and also to the TSC Club, for supporting the ride. And of course to all the other riders co...

Re: BIG LOOP RIDE - 270km July 7

I've done the counter-clockwise route.
Seemed fine, except I got lost a couple of times, so it became the 290km big loop ride.
I have not done the clockwise direction, so can't compare.
We could have two teams, going in either direction, to see who finishes first!
