Re: Tripleshot Party at Mike's, Sat Sept 14, 1-5pm

I'm beginning to mentally prepare for the possibility that this outdoor end-of-summer bash may not happen. :(
I will wait for formal word...or maybe news that MF has secured a party tent and heaters. :D

"There is no 'war on cars'..." comment piece on multimodal transport (and our bike lanes)

Gosh. The T-C does occasionally publish non-garbage. Mind you, it's by a guest writer - i.e. someone *smarter* than a sack of rocks. But still...maybe there's hope for the voice of reason in the ridiculousness playing out on our roads. https://www.timescolonist.com/comment-there-s-no-war-on-cars-div...

Re: Saturday Sufferfest

Sig mentioned this morning he'd like to ride at 6 tomorrow morning. So, on behalf of Sig, I invite others to join along. All done by 9 then back to bed...? :D

Steve and I are likely in, too. AJ Neale is a maybe. I'm hoping Joe, Andy and other nice people will also come out. More the merrier.

borrow a MTB?

Taking the kids to Cumberland next week. My daughter is about my size (16"/sm frame) and I'd love to set her up with something that she'll enjoy on the trails. She's a gentle lass. And her mum would be most grateful if someone had a loaner we could use for a few days. :)

Andrew, do you mean the "traditional" Caddy Bay hills? I might be able to make the Munns ride this week. Anyone else thinking of doing that?

Jordan River, left hand side of road just as you come to the oceanside 3. Port Renfrew, left hand side opposite Denning Road (the right turn to Lake Cowichan) 4. Lake Cowi...

Re: Big Loop Ride July 28

With nearly 24 riders signed up, and with a wide range of strengths and abilities, I propose that we plan to ride this event as two groups right from the the start. Twenty-four and counting. With the great weather forecast, late additions are highly likely. And, while I'm all for safety in numbers ...

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

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...

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!

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
