Re: Sunday, Nov. 17 - Early Explore of Mitchell Lake and Hazlitt Creek

It takes a special kind of crazy to step out of the house into a downpour at 5-something on a Sunday morning—never mind follow someone up muddy hills in a soaking, pitch-black forest into areas unknown. Thanks for the company. I look forward to repeating that route in clement conditions. https://pho...

Re: Sunday, Nov. 17 - Early Explore to Mitchell Lake and Hazlitt Creek

We all enjoy and seek out flow. But this ride may feature the intentional selection of pointless routes. Strictly rational decision-making may end up sacrificed at the altar of exploration. So if you’re asking about lollygagging, Rob, this may not be the ride for you. :P But you’re always welcome. M...

Sorry, Dolly! But it's the consequence of having only 20 waking hours at home this weekend.

Sunday, Nov. 17 - Early Explore of Mitchell Lake and Hazlitt Creek

Instead of working tonight, I've been playing with maps. (Thanks, Ron. :evil:) Here's an idea for some fun, new stuff on Sunday . I'm only home for part of the weekend, so I'll leave Fort & Richmond at 6 a.m. to do the more boring Goose/Highland/Westoby/Millstream Lake approach in the wet darkness. ...

Re: Friday, November 15: The Battle of the Winwaed

Like identical twins separated at birth, your route plans are the product of an obvious mind-meld! JT: that leg thing is disgusting. But I'm glad you brought up ancient pagans (orifices must follow!) It's time to start thinking of what Cross version of the Solstice Ride we're going to do this year. ...

Re: Farm cross !

Yes, birthday month is temporarily adjourned while I’m away on business and shall resume on Sunday morning. 8) :roll:

I’m staying at Metrotown in Burnaby and my nature-withdrawal syndrome is becoming acute. Who knew there was *this* much wet concrete on the planet?

Re: Sunday, Nov 10 - HARTLAND

Hey guys, I'm feeling a bit less ambitious than all your technical climbing. :shock: I've been avoiding Hartland proper on a CX bike unless Lister tells me I have to. Unless you're just skirting the edge, the pain/pleasure ratio is diminished compared with conventional gravel. See you at 7:30, Dolly...

Sunday, Nov. 3 - Au-Tom Cruise

Leaving Fairbucks at 7:00 tomorrow (to take advantage of the time change a little.) An easygoing cruise of some old favourites. Nothing too technical, nothing too grindy. Pace: come one, come all. A savour-the-crunch-of-leaves-and-wind-in-your-face, kinda ride. Coffee/breakfast by 10:30. https://me...

Re: Wednesday, Oct. 30 - FarmDross

Ben: the church parking lot at Richmond and Richardson. Leaving at 6:05. And we’re usually at Cook St. Moka House by 7:30 for coffee if you have time.

JT: guess who I am in this metaphorical scenario?
