Re: Great Trail Adventure II

Thanks Greg, Excuse my naivety but is the Alpha Starbucks the one on Douglas across from the Mayfair Mall? Heads up I have some nerve irritation in my right arm. I figured out that I have been reaching and finally my body is complaining and letting me know my riding position isn't working. As long a...

Re: Starting the list for the next Great Trail Adventure

That's great! I'm in..... My girlfriend Val will be here from Edmonton with her cross bike and would like to ride too. Is it okay if she rides with us? She is pretty fit but if the pace of the group is too much we will hang back and go at our own pace,
Thanks,

Hey Norm,
Would you like to meet and ride the trail and catch Rolf & John on the way back. I'll be going at 9ish. I just need to be back by 12:30.

Re: Cross Ride

I"ll be there tomorrow morning.

I'm getting as much cross cycling in before I go to Edmonton on Saturday for the week where I will be fat biking in the snow. Maybe I'll see some polar bears or snow leopard or even better a penguin!

Re: Cross Ride

Hello Owls, I enjoyed this morning's ride on the dark side- precarious at times, following you hoots! But I do like to live on the edge. And I did an extra long ride as I thought I heard an owl tweeting that you were going to Shoal Point for coffee. But I manage to mingle with a flock of sparrows. :...

Re: Cross Ride

Sounds like I missed a good cross ride on Sunday -- I was road riding with Val - which was a stunner too. :)

So I'm hoping for a cross ride in the morning - I'm going to go ahead a put the cross wheels back on my bike and show up ready to go at 6am.

Anyone?

Re: Cross Ride

Hey Geoff Thank you leading the cross ride this morning. It always amazes me how well you know your way around through the alley ways and trails within the Victoria neighbourhoods. And in the dark too! The little cross course you set up with the pink flags was great. We got to practice cornering and...

Re: Riding the Great Trail and beyond

Sensational video. Martin and I did some of that new trail a couple of weeks ago and you captured some of the great moments. Wow, aren't we lucky to live here and cycle this beautiful country!

Bike Insurance

What do people use for bicycle insurance? My contents with my home only covers up to $3000. I looked at it through the Cycling Canada Insurance Program which looks good except they are not affiliated with Cycling BC so I would have to join the Alberta Cycling Association!!! http://www.cyclinginsuran...

I believe some of the long rides and events and their dates have been decided for this year. I can't find them posted anywhere. If they haven't been posted I would appreciate knowing the dates and events. My social calendar is already booking up :wink:

It looks like one more person is needed to help with selling tickets at the door. I can do that.
