Forum lurkers: Join up!

We’ve learned some folks have been following this sub-forum over the past few years to glean ride ideas and generally be aware of our Club’s gravel activities. Since pandemic restrictions eased and group rides returned in June, most of our ride-planning chatter (and some of our nonsense) has shifted...

Re: Cycling BC Board

Tim, the BC Cycling Coalition is likely the best-positioned to work on MVA advocacy: https://www.bccc.bc.ca/

A good related blog post on their site is here.

Dear sam,

You may be one of the most patient cyclists I've ever encountered.

Re: Everesting (No, Not Me!!)

Oh silly me. Thanks, John! Here are Andrew’s 84(?) nutty Munn repeats from May . Some associated rumours: (a) he was stuck in his 25 ring and would occasionally switch to his cross bike for some recovery; and (b) he kept track of his repeats by moving pine cones around at the side of the road. Truth...

Re: Everesting (No, Not Me!!)

Phil Gaimon did a fun interview last week with the Irish feller who beat Contador's record by 20+ minutes. They talk about the weird bike modifications, the ideal gradient etc. Some locals have done this, too: notably, Clay Webb and Fabian Merino on the Observatory in 2015 , and Ethan Pauly and Jack...

I’m looking for the same thing, but 10-spd. Ultegra preferred.

It’s hard to get these things right. e.g. I hope “Strive for personal athletic improvement...” encompasses maintaining personal athletic mediocrity and occasionally falling off the wagon entirely for a few weeks/months of overdoing the booze and Cheezies b...
