Not-a-ride post

In keeping with TS direction, BC Cycling direction, impending provincial direction, One Direction , etc, this isn’t about any planned or pending gravel or cross rides. Instead it’s a thread of gif’s* to describe what just happened to 2020: https://media1.tenor.com/images/95923a56db08fb65378d239d04cf...

Re: Wednesday, February 26 - Farming Doggerel

Tis true we'll join you,
Catching dirt in our teeth.
Should I die out there,
In my will, I bequeath
My bike to my kids
Who shall not fail
To join you next week
On the next muddy trail.

Friday 7 Feb

I plan on being at Oak Bay on my cross bike. After that, I might just go directly to coffee for a nap.

But if there are others, I may ride, daintily, thru the mud.

Re: Sunday Cx

There’s definitely a few sections where a snorkel and/or cable ferry would have come in handy. The normally-placid bubbling brook partway up Executive was applying for Class V rapids status. We went around the lake, which was mostly rideable; it may calm down by tomorrow of course. Hartland looked o...

Sunday Plan B

Tho I’m interested in doing the Great Trail again too, I’m planning to stick to the lower country tomorrow. If anyone is interested, I’ll sweep by Switch Bridge at 0730, then rolling to Royal Roads, threading thru Thetis, cruising by Camouson, etc. https://media1.tenor.com/images/28a03f95883a5cbc0dd...

And as for riding at 7:30, 8:00, or even 6:00 am, http://media.giphy.com/media/9NVGSjg5q1T6U/giphy.gif Alas, L3 had forgotten the age-old adage “NEVER let your kids read the TS forum over your shoulder.” https://media1.tenor.com/images/8fb689deb54537e82b69c58a3fe96db9/tenor.gif?itemid=15746185

Re: Gravel Ride Planning

Good posts Rolf! For those a little intimidated/unsure of the mapping tools, strongly encourage the "old school" methods - share the general area you'll be exploring, try to make a mental map, then carry an app to figure it out as we go (someone may already know parts, of course) Part of the fun is ...

I don’t know what “enso” means either, but when you search for a gif under it, cross-appropriate magic just....happens.

The good thing about the golf course - easier to see everyone and easier to cut corners to catch up and stay close if need be.
