Re: 2nd Annual Tripleshot Great Trail Adventure - VOTE!

Hi,
Just a reminder that I suspect most TSC "ride leaders" may be either teaching at, or taking, the Cycling BC ride leader course on May 5. One sycophant is planning to attend :oops:

Re: Bike Tours ? Europe etc.

Gerry, I am not familiar with guided trips although they sound very exciting. Cecilia and I have ridden some in Europe and have always managed ok without guides. We usually do linear tours and I think most guided tours do circular routes. Also we don't have to decide how far we want to ride each day...

Re: Tuesday the 12th--Snow frolicking...

I will try to make it. I am hoping that style is not so important as getting to the finish line because I am only half proficient at the breast stroke and I am struggling with my flipturn. You all look so stylish

12 minute warm weather riding reminder

Hi all, This cold is dampening my enthusiasm at 5:30 in the morning. Judging by my Strava feed I am not alone in feeling this way. The video below reminds me of riding in shorts and short sleeves. Maybe it will warm you up a bit. It was made by Sylvain St-Denis and shows two days of riding in Argent...

Re: New Kit Order: Fall 2018

This morning I verified that my Barrier Wind Jacket which is "constructed with our Windproof and Water Resistant AGRAVIC fabric to keep you dry and comfortable" behaves exactly the same as Rolf's Sidewinder jacket at half the price. Having said that, water beaded up on one of my sleeves for about 20...

Still too warm for Winter Jacket?

Due to popular demand (or persistent whining on my part - take your pick), Jackroo have added a "real" winter jacket option to the kit order: http://shop.jakroo.ca/Storefront-Canada/Tripleshot-Cycling-Club-2018/MAGI-126486-SIDEWINDER-1 . Note that the $206 price doesn't include the 25% club discoun...

Dear John,

Choosing a small bike for cross is cute and I am not surprised that you are up..., way up..., grading.

But buying a bike that is not good enough for you...

Good luck with that,

Re: Big Loop Ride July 15th ... details please

The third group? I think that the collective memory of the third group last year is a little muddled. As I recall, the third group consisted of Amy, Gerry and an old, fat and weak guy whom they were pulling after he was dropped by the second group climbing out of Jordan River. If it hadn't been for ...
