Deer collision on Humpback

Today's Saturday Sufferfest was marred by a crash with a deer around 8am this morning. Rob Duncan went head over heels after T-boning a Bambi on Humpback Rd., as we were heading south towards Sooke Rd. (Hwy). Rob was leading, called out a deer, she crossed in front and we thought we were clear. Sudd...

Re: Saturday Sufferfest

No worries Matt, we'll go as strong as we can. Starbucks, Cook St it is. Maybe there will be some others that show-up or meet us on the way.

Re: Saturday sufferfest

Distance .... I checked again. If we head out to Sooke via East Sooke (Metchosin Rd. ... Rocky Pt. Rd.... and Gillespie) then turn left on Sooke Rd. to Sooke and Otter Pt. ..... it's a 105km round trip from Esquimalt .... so about 115 from Cook St. return.

Re: Saturday sufferfest

I'm in for Otter Pt. tomorrow, leaving at 6 from Starbucks. I do need to be back in town by 10:30ish. But Otter Pt. and back, by itself isn't much more than 90kms.

Hang in there Rob, you'll be back stronger than ever.

L'histoire de maillot jaune

The other day on the French news there was a report on the history of the Tour de France yellow jersey, which is 100 years old this summer. If you go to the link below and drag the "thermometer" at the bottom of the screen to precisely 28 minutes, you should be able to watch it. Fascinating even if ...

60 Cycles - filmaker Labrecque legacy

The great inspirational NFB documentary '60 Cycles' inspired many of Canada's cyclists throughout the 60's, 70's, 80's and beyond. It's 16 minutes of pure delight, music and light. https://www.nfb.ca/film/60_cycles_en/ The filmaker, Jean Claude Labrecque, a luminary of Quebec cinema has passed away....

Re: Volunteers for Robert Cameron Law Time Trial - June 7th

Tripleshot volunteers you are tough and wonderful. That was a cold and longer marshalling pull, but great to be a part of the Masters Nationals!

Re: 3 FERRIES RIDE MAY 26

Yup, that was what happened! Sunny and lots of waves, both kinds.
Thanks for the camera work Todd and editing Rolf! And to all who helped organize, Paul, Fossie, John, Jill and the peloton.

Re: 40K Individual Time Trial or TTT - June 2nd.

Thanks for posting Alan. I don't know about Joe's Garage. Two hundred Motels and the Dental Floss Tycoon were my favourites. Looks like Steve can't make it. Last Sunday, at the Three Ferries, Todd said he's willing, we're now looking for a fourth .... anyone out there interested? This Thursday morni...
