Old TS Kit: Free for kids, $shipping for the rest of you lot

Hey, all: When I moved away, I brought along an accretion of TS kit that my kids and I had collected over the years. I am trimming down my closet so I can make room for the kit of a Knight of Sufferlandria <buffs nails> (One must do *something* to stay sane during a Michigan winter, even if it's som...

That, sir, is a detestable and appalling lie.

It was all Simon's fault.

So, there.

Re: Youth rider injured in hit and run- grey dodge dakota

I hope they find this person and press charges appropriate for harming a person with a 1000-kilo piece of metal. At speed. In the meantime, I love to hear of Megan's spirit and think she's more than earned one of these: https://images.sunfrogshirts.com/2015/09/21/Is-My-Bike-OK-Funny-Cycling-Shirt.jp...

Re: Why did YOU join Tripleshot?

This guy named Lister, a fellow Oak Bay Preschool parent, and I kept bumping into each other as our kids grew through Margaret Jenkins school. By 2010, I was deep into triathlon and every time I saw him, he suggested that I try riding with his Masters-oriented cycling club. I was askeered of group r...

Re: Stravaholics check your privacy settings!

I saw an article full of "might be" and "perhaps" and "we suspect." I saw nothing indicating, "a survey of larceny dockets over the last six months, compared to those from ten years ago, shows a significant (p <=0.05) increase in mentions of social media stalking as a means to commit the offence."

2. All the philosophizing reminds me of the time when over coffee (and regarding the Sunday ride) some new new guy asked when the Interurban sprint starts and Peter replied "There is no start, only a finish." :wink: Heh.

Re: Sunday, Longer

Just to clarify: the "fair game if you fail to show" thing isn't an indiscriminate, anything-goes slag-a-rama. It's not simply about "if you don't show up"; it's about "if you should show up, but don't." This has me wondering, what happens if you do show up, but you shouldn't? I've done this. They ...

Re: Saturday March 14. FROM DISCO ON OAK BAY AVENUE

Barton, Nice route! I like the variety and change of direction :D Don't know if I'll be there or not. I'm going to spin today and see how I feel. If all feels good with my back, I might join you for 1-2 hours--I think that's about as long as I could/should go. If not, have a great ride! doug Barton...
