Reply was somehow posted to the wrong thread - kind of a Twlight Zone thing. I blame the software (always a convenient scapegoat)

Re: 7th Annual Hurricane Ridge Club Ride

I second the request to move the cutoff time - not least because I have, uh, missed the previously announced cutoff time. By just a few hours. I intend to go and would appreciate being part of the crowd that gets their park fees paid!
Cheers,

Re: Big Loop - June 25

I'm out of town From the 8th to the 15th. From the mention of Saturday rides I'm guessing that some folks are still working Monday to Friday...
I'm interested in the 20th. Could be fun with a gang of four or so.

Wanted: Garmin Edge 500 parts

My wife's Garmin needs a new screen, as the flex connector at the bottom of the screen unit has developed a fault - resulting in blank screen. Anyone have a dead 500 that may have still have a good screen? Or a a working 500 that you're ready to sell?

The Big Loop - The Right Way?

(This post, originally entered on Strava [https://www.strava.com/activities/1757487380] appears as a matter of record - and to encourage discussion toward a counterclockwise Big Loop group ride someday.

Munn Road (gently!) Wednesday morning

OK, previous invites to do Munn Road have elicited responses only from HILLBEASTS. It's a great way to stay humble, but some company would be nice too, so let me be velocity-specific as to the meaning of gentle: avg. 10-12 kmh on the longer climbs, and probably 8 kmh on the last kick to the little r...

Wanted SRAM GXP crank - 165mm 50/34

165 mm 50/34 SRAM GXP crank wanted

After an engagingly high-tech 3-hour bike fit session with Barb of BBPhysio, one idea coming out of it was that I might benefit from shorter crank arms. I currently run the apparent industry default length of 172.5. I'm a SRAM-ophile and have GXP bottom brackets on my rigs. Would love to find Force ...

Expert sew-er for kit repair?

"Sew-er": my attempt at a gender neutral term for one skilled in sewing, spelled in a manner to avoid confusion with waste transmission pipes. OK, with that out out of the way, can anyone refer me to such a skilled individual, able to sew a fresh chamois on much-loved, rare and valuable club kit? Ch...

Re: Race Games Idea

So, uh, has this happened yet? Sounds great - I vote for its inclusion in Friday rides - and with the numbers of B riders who are showing up (especially when the weather is fair) I agree with Martin's assessment that there's more than enough bodies for everyone to do their favourite type of pedaling.

Hi Fozzy -

I'm available June 1 from 2:45 pm for about 4 hours. Are the marshals and organizers meeting on Dallas near Clover Point?

Re: Tuesday morning Munn Road expedition

Hi Ann - Spectacular ride - not record breaking, but fun and incredibly beautiful. Did Munn, then Durrance Rd to Willis then turned around and did it in the opposite direction. A bit sketchy with morning commuters on a one-lane roller coaster road in a forest, but it just required some alert caution...

Tuesday morning Munn Road expedition

At a recreational pace, so Master's contenders need not apply - or you can just zoom by and I'll watch you defy gravity. Switch bridge at 6:30.

Cheers,

Re: Saturday sufferfest - the glorious resurrection

Hmmm... sounds like a "Big Loop Lite". Speaking of which, we saw you on the Big Loop 3 weeks ago (avec famille?) clearly itching for some pedal action but reduced to enjoying it vicariously from an internal combustion machine. Classic signs of endorphin addiction... If I did Jordan River I would pro...

Will there be a 7:30 "Sunday ride" on Friday the 11th in view of the stat holiday, or will it just be the usual 6am ride? Or both? (I vote for riding in daylight whenever we can!)

Re: Goldstream Heights Saturday Sept. 3?

Hi Steve - You're the first Tripleshotter to raise a hand. I've got 2, maybe 3 IRC guys wanting to do it, so it's safe to figure a group of 4 at least. Compromise start time: 06:30 at the corner of Clifford and Arnold in Fairfield. If that's not convenient we can meet you at the Uptown switch bridge...
