Sorry, A2, but that was as un-Tripleshot as it gets

No matter what group you’re with, taking dangerous turns across oncoming traffic and then leaving the last four riders behind at a red light is utterly classless.It’s probably no coincidence that a good number of the riders in A2 today aren’t Tripleshot members. If you’re thinking “You’re one to tal...

Very cool study looking for participants of the cyclist variety

Hey y'all. One of my connections—a uVic-based researcher + executive director of BikeMaps.org—is seeking participants for what looks to be a really meaningful study. (As I completed the initial questionnaire, I was impressed by both the depth and the sophistication with which it delves beyond 'activ...

Re: Saturday sufferfest

Hey all. With apologies for trying to hijack your ride plan, Mr. Skrobek, how would all y'all feel about heading out Otter Point Road way? Claire and I just talked about doing that tomorrow—also with a 7:00 start—and we'd enjoy the company.

Re: Great Trail Ride Survey

Pain? Pfft. I have no idea what you're taking about. It's a bit of a blur — being nice is new and unfamiliar terrain for me...like gravel biking, and look how that turned out — but I think I said roughly this: --- Some silver linings from the broken guy's perspective: - Riding a bike thru the forest...

I posted something uncharacteristically nice here but the President called it "fake news" and took it down. What a dick (tator). Bloody Trump wanna-bes.

Vision carbon crank • a big motherf...(oops—sorry, Juniors)

That's right, big. Like, 54/42 big. I know what you're thinking. “54—WTF? That’s preposterous. Not even Calgary Steve mashes huge gears like that!" Exactly. That’s why he's selling it. If you’ve always wanted to show that asshol* up (and really, who hasn’t?), here’s your chance. After you install th...

CCW Big Loop Ride • Saturday, Aug 11

This Saturday, a few Tripleshot folks are going to ride the Big Loop route in reverse, starting with the blasted Malahat and finishing off on the Sooke side of things. Our loose goal is to keep the average over 30 km/h. The pace will be steady and vigorous but by no means sufferfesty. If you're game...

Saturday Discomfort-fest

Forget that whole notion of the Saturday "sufferfest." Nobody truly suffers on this ride. The goal is to spend a few splendid hours free from the confines of your comfort zone. That doesn't sound so bad, does it? Last week we had a solid contingent of six, which made for a peppy but steady ride arou...

Re: 3 Ferries Ride May 27

Hey Scott — since everyone back in the sightseeing section missed it, I tracked this down on Google Street View.

Two S. Davises here on the island. What are the chances?

To this morning's A2 group...

If you happened to be in the line of fire (and I'm pretty sure most of you were), I apologize for spitting venom this morning. I was frustrated (obviously) because there’s been a trend recently of A riders joining the A2 ride and turning it into just another “attack and chase” game. That’s not what ...

Which is precisely the reason for NOT doing that. But ever notice, Andrew and Steve, how much better you feel after a good vomit?

I always come last.
That's sad. I've won—decisively!—100% of my solo sprint efforts.

I guess that's why (according to an informal poll I just conducted in my head) everyone thinks I'm awesome.
