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...

My wife has been bitten by the bike bug after completing the 30 k Tour d Victoria last year and is now training for the 60 k this year (one more bike in the garage!). We were thinking of a bike tour in (?) Europe in the fall. Any suggestions or pitfalls? Some expensive operators move your bags ahead...

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.

What would you do (bike theft)?

I was out for a walk on Saturday morning and passed an individual on the opposite side of the street awkwardly pulling a mountain bike with a missing front wheel. He did not look like a cyclist. Would you: 1. confront the individual and make a citizen's arrest (is being a Marshall for a bike event a...

Re: Crash on Ash - deer collision

Too bad about the crash. Hope you have a quick recovery and are back on the road soon. Gordon Head is deer paradise- plenty of food and not a lot of traffic. I have skimmed by a deer by only a few feet 1/2 way down Ash hill on one of the Sunday rides doing over 40-50 kph and shudder to think of what...
