Re: Saturday sufferfest

Thanks for the distance check, Joe. I'd counter that we do the Sooke Rd/Gillespie options in the other order, though. Getting the longer hwy stretch done early seems better from a traffic standpoint, no? Then we return via the (quieter) East Sooke route on the return. Or if anyone's gassed by then t...

Re: Saturday sufferfest

Are you going down to the states, Rob? What about Steve S? Be good to get a bit of a crowd out tomorrow for a bit of a different route.

Re: Saturday sufferfest

Thinking ahead to riding on Saturday. Last week, we had an excellent crew of six out for the usual peninsula route but discussed the possibility of doing something different this coming week. I believe the tentative plan is to meet at Cook Sbx at 0600 for Otter Point (beyond Sooke). See above for my...

Re: Tuesday ride and road work

This morning's ride finished just in the nick of time*. Within an hour (or so), the intersection was fully closed with torn up pavement in "our" corner of the intersection. Hopefully someone can post an update before next Tuesday as to the state of things. Hopefully by then, we'll have delicious new...

Re: Selection of men's jerseys M/L

Nope, sorry. There are still two Velofix jerseys and a lovely purple "Tour de Lavender" one, though. All large-ish.

Re: Saturday sufferfest

I like where this is headed. A 7am start with a lovely group of people. I am not very interested in riding the peninsula, hence the Otter Point idea. I was thinking we'd ride the Goose to Goldstream (via Wale) and ride the new parkway over to Sooke Rd. Then some Sooke highway (safer in numbers!) and...

Re: Wednesday morning munns

Count me in for this week, and likely next as well.

Steve, Wed mornings during school were not doable this year but with summer comes less predictability (but more flexibility).

Bring on the Munns!

Re: Selection of men's jerseys M/L

OMG, where was the QC with the photography? So much blurriness. So many slippered feet! Good thing my friends are so forgiving of my foibles. (Or maybe my adorable slippers have blinded them to the shoddy photographic work...) JT, I think Greg is right. They fit a slightly burlier fellow than you, s...

Selection of men's jerseys M/L

Free to juniors and new riders. By donation to Tripleshot Youth for anyone else. Pics are on UsedVic. Plus a pair of super funky Hotel Zed arm warmers. All are Steve-Lund-size and in decent shape. Just surplus to needs (or a colour that doesn't adequately compliment his complexion). https://www.used...

Leechtown Saturday

My titanium-reinforced riding partner and I are going to ride the Goose to Leechtown tomorrow morning. Leaving at 9 (9:05 Switch Bridge).
1. Anyone else want to join us?
2. How far is that? I seem to recall it's something over 100km return, but not a lot more. Maybe 120?
Cheers,
Claire

Re: Metchosin Hillfest #3 SATURDAY

I'd love to ride some hills this Saturday but wondering if anyone wants to start at 9? I'm not able to get out any earlier this time. Otherwise, the usual route with any of its variants sound like fun.

Re: Great Trail Ride Survey

Steve was surgically reassembled today and is laying low at home for the time being (which, strangely precludes him from all manner of house chores but not from operating the barbecue...). He's sporting a high-end titanium reinforcement plate and anodized purple screws in a throwback to his days as ...

Re: A question for the doctors: how many Tylenol can I take?

* by "almost" I mean I hang around doctors a fair bit and have seen this amount prescribed countless times. But I'm really just a nerd with a fascination with all things medical. I believe there may be issues with taking Advil and high-intensity exercise, so stay away from that combination unless so...

Re: A question for the doctors: how many Tylenol can I take?

Hi. I'm almost a doctor and happen to have good knowledge of Tylenol dosing. You can take up to 1000mg (that's one gram) at a time, up to four times in a 24hr period. So a max of four grams/24hrs. You can also take whatever the daily dose of Advil/ibuprofen is concurrently, if you're so inclined.

Borrow a bike for my 10-yr-old?

My son has an old and worn out bike and I'd like to take him on the trails this weekend. A new bike is on the horizon but in the short term I'd love to try out a decent bike on him.

A brief loan would be most appreciated.

Thanks!

Saturday early?

I am not quite decided on this yet, but thought I'd float the idea of resurrecting a 6a.m. ride of ye olde peninsula route this Saturday. Weather looks to be decent (if a tad chilly to start). If anyone's contemplating the same, post here and just maybe a critical mass will assemble. Usual routine -...

Re: 12 minute warm weather riding reminder

Very cool looking trip, Mikael! I will admit, trudging on foot up a steep and sandy road is not too enticing, but I trust you were redeemed at the summit and I sure do envy the opportunity to pedal bikes in a beautiful, sunny foreign land. I'd love to hear more over coffee one day.
