Re: Sunday, June 16 - Metchosin Dads Ride

Dearest Tyre,

You dislike Metchosin (weirdo); I dislike Munn.

You’re training or something; I’m just looking to swoop the vectors and savour the sweet odours of ocean and Metchosin lamb.

See you at Fantastico.

Hugs...

Sunday, June 16 - Metchosin Dads Ride

Since there's no solstice ride this Sunday :cry: and Dads get to do what they want, I'm doing my first road spin out to Metchosin in yonks*. Something pretty close to this , at about the same easy-but-not-too-easy, no-drop pace (c. 27.) Roll-out at 7:00 from Fairfield Plaza Starbucks, to enjoy the e...

Re: Mashby's mashup: My ride report

You flatted four times on one road ride? :shock: Sounds like the CrossFondo. Y'know, there's an easier way to brag about doing all that solo vert 15 minutes faster than mashby, JT: change your privacy settings on Strava. :idea: But then Mrs. Tyre might notice how many Uplands backyards you lurk in o...

Re: Wed June 12 farm-x. I see your hill and I raise you HILLS

a small amount of trail between the excruciating, tedious uphill road grinds You make it sound so appealing! :P Sorry, Mark. Hills are gross, unless one has a reason to train—in which case they're still gross but at least the pain isn't pointless. I aim to ride the regular old Farm road ride tomorr...

Re: Sunday, June 9 - Testament, Partridge Hills and some speed trails

I've got a special guest and won't be riding. Apparently I'm enjoying an unplanned, fallow period of fewer bikenings these days. Testament from Durrance to Willis feels a little more flowy than the reverse you've planned here; but frankly it gets to be a bit of a female dog both ways. Gorgeous fores...

Re: Volunteers for Robert Cameron Law Time Trial - June 7th

Full communiqué on the route changes here. Most of you are probably en route to volunteer, but here are a few tips for volunteering for this event: it's nearly always windy and colder than expected; bring extra layers in a backpack (it's also nice to wear Tripleshot stuff on the outside, so our clu...

2019 Hayman Classic - Junior Road Provincial Championships

Before we cheer on our Masters gladiators this weekend, let's take a moment to celebrate what the youth were up to a couple of weekends ago. (I always get such a thrill seeing young people gutting themselves in our Club colours.) Write-up: Jo Fox; Photos: Cody Gannon; Full TS Photos album (70+ shots...

Friday, June 7 - (Pearl) Jam to UVic

This week keeps getting weirder. After lauding the nineties all weekend and playing with related GIFfies on Tuesday, I was having lunch downtown Vancouver yesterday when Jason Priestley sat down on the same banquette and dined just inches off my elbow. I take this to mean Eddie Vedder will spontaneo...
