Re: Tues. Jan. 21: First come first serve.

If you gave us something more to go on than pre-meditated surface damage :roll: and that Alan (probably definitely the hardiest guy I know) is too wimpy for your planned route :roll: :roll: — some of us may actually clamour to be part of such an exalted foursome. :roll: :roll: :roll: While six stra...

Tues. Jan. 21: First come first serve.

I'm prepared to lead 3-4 hardy folk through territory where more than 3-4 might leave a less-than-desirable footprint. Ending at PV at 7:20 am.

Re: Jan 19 - Post Snow Ride

Ron, I could strangle you about now, http://media.giphy.com/media/S3vv9Ly9ehcDC/giphy.gif That route just about killed us all last time, but I still wanna find that cave. Let's see what other deviants say, but at this point I plan on being at Finlayson and Cedar Hill at 7:45 am.   May I propose the ...

Re: May 2 - Ride for Water - Chilliwack

Not fully committed. I'm about a propane tank away from that... Just waiting to get feel for numbers and wanting to do a little more accommodation research. Wanted to rent: one used Winnebago, meth. lab optional. http://media.giphy.com/media/xfqDfDC2K3I3e/giphy.gif I am interested in this event but...

Hi Claire,

Hey L3, I'll be heading from home directly to the Lockside/Blenkinsop Greenway intersection. Let me know the meet-up time and I'll be there. If Geoff's a no-show, we gossip, K?

Re: Sunday CX - the last ride before the snow?

I was going to post a ride but had a nap instead.  In that nap, I dreamt that Rolf showed up at my place at 10am tomorrow morning dressed like this, http://media.giphy.com/media/MtLoYrPUQFj68/giphy.gif Friends, tell me, am I sick?

Re: Angry TC opinion column on soft-ground damage by "Selfish, obtuse cyclists"

Our group was much more responsible and largely eschewed the mud in favour of grass, gravel, and teeny tiny (I mean, seriously de minimis ) slices of golf course. http://media.giphy.com/media/l1J9NfouPRyw3Mgxi/giphy.gif For trail building opportunities, Daniel C. is usually working on good things (...

Re: Friday Jan 10 - self-serving ride

Both routes look great, Louise. I won't be going to Shoal Point regardless, sorry Claire. I favor the first one because it ends up at PV (right near our house). I'll call ahead and ask Jill to run a tub for all of us. Alan, warning!!!, we're gonna to clean you up before we get in,  http://media.giph...
