Re: Sunday, June 30th CX Day Ride on Olympic Adventure Trail

I don't see anyone else's marital dirty laundry being aired on the TS forum :evil: (That little face is the best I can do in the Gif department. My talents like elsewhere). I will see you guys at the Coho on Sun morning. With bells on. Or rather with bear spray and a lot of food. And a lot of tubes....

Re: Sunday, June 30th CX Day Ride on Olympic Adventure Trail

Hi Ron,

I'm a strong maybe and may be bringing two others. I'll confirm this weekend post-consultation.

Re: Sunday, June 30 MAGA Cross Ride

This looks awesome. What is your plan for the ride back. The trail is an out and back but your plotted route is a loop.

Re: Sunday, June 9 - Testament, Partridge Hills and some speed trails

I'll meet you guys at the end of Lochside where it meets up with Royal Oak (Lochside school) at 7. Its actually nearly a km shorter for me than the Bleinkinsop/Mt. Doug meeting spot and if you guys aren't there yet, I can just ride Lochside south until I meet you.

Re: Sunday, June 9 - Testament, Partridge Hills and some speed trails

Yes, I just saw that! What time do you think you'll be there? I think my plan will be to go up regional trail when you guys head up ross durrance. I'll take Old Payoff - Torpedo - Centerfold - back to regional trail - the new Skull and then Executive down and out back to the rail trail and head QB t...

Re: Sunday, June 9 - Testament, Partridge Hills and some speed trails

So I was kinda thinking I'd join for a portion of this (have to be home early to get back to heavy labour kitchen reno prep) but not sure about lots of hike and bike. I haven't ridden Testament so I'm keen to do it, although I remember Rolf saying that one direction was sweet, the other not so much....

Re: Sunday, June 30 MAGA Cross Ride

Hi Ron, I like the idea, like the date (June 30) and am still owed a day on the bike. But I might have to be a commit the week before kind of person (sorry, annoying I know...). That is just the state of life right now. My MIL is in town over July 7 so not likely that I can leave for the day. I'll f...

Re: Wednesday, May 15 - FarmCross

Thanks for the intel. Given my tight timeline I'll need to maximize trail time and hit some trails a bit closer to home - like Haro and Ten Mile. Have fun!

Re: Wednesday, May 15 - FarmCross

Where are ya going? I am going to be out test riding my 15 year old mt bike to make sure it is shifting well enough to earn itself a trip to Hornby. I have very limited time but will join you guys if the locale/timing works.

Re: Mothers Day Cross Ride- Fun in the Forest!

The route looks great Ron! I love those bear mountain trails. I think this ride will be pretty technical so might impact get back to town time, just fyi for people who might have tight timelines. I'm a bit non-committal at the moment since I haven't fully consulted on my Mother's day options but I'l...

TTT - Safety protocol?

What a beautiful morning for the TTT today. I love this ride and wish I could get there more often. Today we had a situation (that was safely handled and didn't become a real issue at all) but I personally would like to know what to do in future similar situations. The group I was in was beginning t...

Re: Wednesday, May 8 - Quicks Bottom

Ron, Not sure if you realize but Sunday is mother's day. If for some reason, you are free since you have already arranged pampering of your children's mother on Sunday morning, I would love a mother's day ride (and be suitably impressed). But I am guessing it might be just the girls who can play on ...

Re: Friday, April 26 - Hidden Paths

Kind of off topic, kind of on topic but this morning I was walking my kids to school using one of these such passage-ways in my neighborhood. We walk up my neighbor's driveway (feels kind of awkward) but at the end there is a clear pass-through where there used to be a fence but when the new owners ...

Re: Sunday, April 21st Cross Ride - EASTER BRUNCH EDITION

Ron, We will be joined by two friends of mine - Rob and Graham. Both did the cross fondo. Rob was not impressed so tmrw is our chance to prove to him that CX IS fun. Graham knows hartland like the back of his hand. We'll be in good hands, at least until we pop out somewhere on munn's. At which point...

Re: Sunday, April 21st Cross Ride - EASTER BRUNCH EDITION

Sounds good Ron. Going into Mt. Work from where you suggest means some grunty climbing on the regional trail but we can come down on the new skull trail which is fantastic, then back in on upper shock treatment to 2nd Ave- Kokanee Hwy - Two trees, also fun and challenging by CX bike. Then I think we...
