Thursday TTT is back

Hey folks, Invitations went out last week for Thursday TTT, and will again this week. Getting the TTT right under Covid may require some experimentation. Given Covid it's important that we not overcrowd the Ring Road. So we're limiting numbers to 5 groups of 5 riders. We're offering 3 rides down at ...

Re: WTB (borrow/buy): Back-country backpacks

I've got an old early 90s frame pack that you're welcome to have (or just borrow) if you want. All I know about the size is that I'm 6' and it fit me back in the day.

Thursday TTT still on hold

There won't be a Thursday TTT on the roster for this week. The Exec needs to discuss whether this ride is feasible during Covid, and if so how it should be implemented. Wednesday Hills are already on the roster, and Friday-Sunday rides will be going. Invitations will generally be sent at 5pm, 2 days...

Re: Hey. Don’t book yourself in multiple rides in spond

At a glance it looks like some people are waitlisted on one ride, and signed up for another—presumably their second choice ride. When the wait list offer comes in they appear on the first ride as “awaiting confirmation “. A little patience is warranted as not everyone can be online all the time. Als...

Re: Sidney and Paskin Cowichan Time Trials- tell them you’re coming

Hey folks, Time Trials will likely be our only racing option this summer. Anyone can race them. It's just you against your last time on the same course. Don't need TT bars, don't need a carbon bike. It would be fun if a bunch of us turned out. Post here if you're interested in racing or watching/vol...

Tripleshot is back (partly!)

It's 4:30pm and the youth team is just starting its first in-person training session since the March Covid shutdown. The weather's not the best, but I bet the kids and coaches are excited to be back riding together again. Hopefully we'll be back to morning club rides soon too. To add to the exciteme...

Ride Leaders needed

Hey folks, Tripleshot has traditionally operated without formal ride leaders--instead relying on a more grassroots approach with everyone expected to do their part to make sure rides are safe and go smoothly. "Return to Play" will require a slightly more formal approach, for the simple reason that e...

Re: Spring Kit Order Open!

There will be a Fall order, probably in September.

You may be able to order the kit as a one-off in the meantime, but it will be more expensive.

Best,

Group Riding during covid

Hey All, As the weather gets better and Dr. Henry and the province start relaxing some aspects of "lockdown" it's probably a good time to clarify a few things about riding in groups. First, the province distinguishes between "active play" and "organized sport" and this distinction matters for follow...
