Re: Velodrome Open House Saturday, April 13 10am-3pm

Mother Nature may not be on our side for the Open House tomorrow. We can't fully use the outdoor velodrome if it rains...and that seems to be the forecast.

Regardless, the GVVA will have someone there to greet and meet and answer questions about GVVA programs so swing by mid-ride to say hi!

Are you fixie-curious? Have you been reading about the GVVA's audacious project, spearheaded by David Attwell, to build a multi-plex facility in Saanich which would include an indoor velodrome? https://www.timescolonist.com/news/local/saanich-velodrome-plan-grows-into-pitch-for-120m-complex-1.237742...

Re: Recommendations for a new bike

I've been riding a Cervelo C5 disc with Ultegra Di2 since October. I call it my "anywhere" bike. I have it fully fendered right now with 28mm road tires and I've been riding it on road and gravel. W/O fenders it can take 32mm tires so I'm going to take the fenders off for Summer and put on some fatt...

Re: Anyone interested in racing as a team this year?

I think this is a terrific idea, and it builds on the "race games" that took place during regular club rides last year. Alan, a few of us (Heather S. Amy E., Ann .P and myself) went up and raced at the Masters TTT at Cowichan last summer and it was a blast. We had sunstroke but other than that, it w...

Here is a bit of info from the event: Two distances on offer: 1) 50km, 750m of climbing (Broad Street to the Great Trail suspension bridge) 2) 88km, 1650m of climbing (Ke...

2016 Cervelo R5 Dura Ace Di2 demo bike up for grabs

The beautiful demo bike I've been enjoying is available for purchase. It's an XS - 48cm. I got this bike on the road in May of 2017. It got a fresh drivetrain in May of 2018 and has been meticulously maintained. Stiff, light, responsive. Original retail was somewhere over $10 000 and it's available ...
