Water Bottle left at Pure Vanilla

Hey Folks - Somebody left a water bottle ( Russ Hays / Victoria Hospice ) behind at Pure Vanilla this morning. It was near the front door on the high counter. Amy? Heather? Ron? Louise?

I'll bring it on the Friday ride. Andrew

Re: Spandads bike drive

Thank you for posting this Craig. I learned of Spandads a couple of weeks ago, and when I enquired at Oak Bay Bikes, I was told that bikes can be dropped off there. If anyone has a bicycle in good shape ( child or adult sized ) languishing in the garage, please consider donating.

Re: Bike Policy for CRD Parks

Thanks to all of you for investing some time in educating the decision makers.

How about: Get all of the directors on rental bikes from the local bike shops and take them over to the Olympic Discovery/Adventure trails for a day

Re: Bike Policy for CRD Parks

Geoff, Thanks for bringing this to our attention, I think this is an important opportunity to get our voices heard. I have submitted my views as an "off-road" user, as opposed to a mountain biker, I'm glad you mentioned that minor distinction. I made the point that many folks without mountain bikes ...

Stranded motorist assisted by A group

For those that missed out on the spectacle at Beacon Hill Park this morning: Our small A group came across a stalled vehicle on the "hill" near mile zero this morning, and we stopped to help push it up around the corner so it wasn't impeding traffic. Kudos to the group for assisting a fellow road us...

Re: Big Loop Ride July 28

I have done the BLR a couple of times, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I have a couple of comments and suggestions to pass along, and as John has wisely offered, I agree that it might be best to have a game plan before we all end up in the parking lot like sheep waiting for instructions ( lik...

Re: Sorry!

Hi Stephane,

No need to apologize! I think one of our group hollered "passing!" and you quickly moved to the right without hampering our progress. I suspect a number of us were pleased to think we could pass you!! ;) Andrew

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

To all the Tripleshot volunteers, Thank you!! That was a LONG afternoon and evening on a windy, cold Friday that you spent making us all safe and feel supported. A number of riders commented on the great volunteers, and to hear the cheering made the pain a little bit easier to bear! Kudos to all who...

Re: Masters_TTT_Results

Judging by the smiles and the report, you must have had a LOT of fun! I know how fast and friendly the four of you are, so even if you hadn't posted the fastest team time, you would have won the spirit/sportsmanship award. Congratulations!! Andrew

Re: Saturday Sufferfest

Note to Rob: Unless I'm mistaken, Steve, Andy, and Damian ( welcome! ) are intending to do the Tripleshot Sufferfest, which is basically the OBB ride starting at 6:00. So there are no hills to speak of ..... unless you count Panorama! ;)

Re: Saturday Sufferfest

Sorry to disappoint Steve, but rather than another Metchosin Hillfest, I have decided to join the OBB ride tomorrow morning at 9. I have a bunch of work tonight so a 6am Sufferfest isn't too appealing, and Sunday looks rainy so I'm going to go into lemming mode and join the masses to Lands End and b...

Re: Metchosin Hillfest #3 SATURDAY

Definitely a regrouping type of ride Steve ..... bring your pneumonia out and we'll get rid of it! As for distance, I think we have done 80km and 100 km ...... and kept the riding time around 3 hours. But this is a flexible ride; we can adjust the route and departure time if necessary. The goal is t...

Metchosin Hillfest #3 SATURDAY

Is anybody interested in a SATURDAY trip out to Metchosin? Thinking of Munn/Bear Mountain/Happy Valley and a few laps of the Nationals course followed by the Lagoon .... maybe even fit in Triangle Mountain? Departing from the Switch Bridge at 7:30, but as usual, the route and departure time are open...
