Re: Fairfield Starbucks

How about the Fort and Foul Bay Starbucks? I would also suggest a trial of 2 groups- A and B along the waterfront with C following the Friday route through Mt. Doug park converging at Mattick's farm. Both groups could mix and merge for the second half of the ride.

Flat on Sunday C ride

Thanks to the group for helping with the tube change after my flat. I noticed my spare tube was still in my repair kit when checking at home. So either the bad tube was magically fixed (still holding air on Monday) or I ended with with someone else’s tube. Please let me know if you are missing a tub...

Re: displaying number plates and bike racks

I spoke with a Constable at the Saanich police station regarding license plates and bike carriers. He mentioned it was up to the discretion of the officer whether to issue a ticket for an obscured license plate. He mentioned the plate must be carried in the location provided by the vehicle manufactu...

Re: Atrial FIb and Masters Athletes

Due to the snow day I had a bit of time for some research. I was able to find many studies on risk factors for atrial fibrillation but very few on prevention other than avoiding the risk factors such as being overweight, diabetic etc.) Here is a summary of additional atrial fibrillation prevention m...

Re: Silly Solstice Ride

Perhaps the less fast riders could do shorter pulls avoiding being on the front going up the "little" hill (that seems to get larger) on Douglas St. leading to the park entrance. 30- 32 the rest of the time shouldn't be a problem.

Re: Early morning temperatures and black ice

I found this article re. frost/ dew formation. Explains why the Selkirk trestle is frosty on the way home from the ride but not the paved Lochside trail.

Springy B ride (not the weather)

The Friday B ride seems more "springy" that usual. Going down Mt Doug X- Road I was in the second row rapidly overtaking the leader. I elected to slow down (too quickly) and in retrospect that could have caused a pileup. A hand signal seemed ill advised as we were going at least 40 kph. What is best...

Tuesday ride and road work

The intersection of Henderson and Cedat hill X-R is torn up with paving and road work. A flag person was on Duty at 4.45 Monday so a detour (? Switch to ring road) may be needed on July 8 morning.

Re: Silly Summer Solstice, C

How is this idea:
Everyone starts at the same time with several larger groups similar to the Thursday TT but whenever the groups meet riders could transfer to a quicker or less quick group? Could make keeping track of laps interesting!

Re: Who else suffers from Allergic rhinitis

The best solution is to move away from Victoria to a place where there are no plants. I can start sneezing after rounding Clover point in the spring- must be a bush along the edge of the road. I find Pender island is another trouble spot. The article you posted has all of the usual treatments. Antih...

meat and masters cycling

90 year old busted for doping- be careful where you get your meat. Good news- 90+ age group may be easier to dominate.
