Re: Solo rides

Thanks you, Rolf. That's really helpful information and advice. It's admitted really hard to know what Johnny Tyre thinks of me https://media.giphy.com/media/BzkSjp227lEFbMKFff/giphy.gif Alan, I know I'm stingy with my feelings, but when it comes to your tight little navy butt I sometimes can't help...

Re: Solo rides

This would be the source of the paranoia: https://covid19.healthdata.org/projection Of course, Hugh. I'm struggling to understand the social distancing guidelines here in BC with respect to riding. In Maryland, solo riding only. In Italy, France, etc. NO riding whatsoever. What are the real or perc...

Solo rides

Ironically, with this pandemic I'm more in touch with colleagues, friends, and family than ever before. One thing that I learnt today from a colleague at John Hopkins (in climate not health) is that only solo riding is permitted in Maryland (except with someone you're living with). On this point, Al...

Re: Keep-sane-during-coronavirus list

Stick to routines, or start new routines. Regulate your news monitoring (worth repeating from Claire's great list). Post lots of giphy's. Right, Claire? :D Meditate. If your haven't before, and are interested here's a good place to start . Mantra, optional. http://media.giphy.com/media/G8JSYBYn5LOw...

I'm missing you too, Fozzy!!  

The minute this crazy science fiction movie is over, I'm giving you a big wet one on the top of your head.

Re: when is a ride a "group ride"?

Thanks for all of the great advice, peeps. Regarding gravel riding, I agree with everything Wolf Rarburton said. I'll just add that for safety's sake, it's probably a good idea to have a riding buddy or two (subject to the conditions above). Alan, for example, falls a lot, and sometimes on pointy th...

Re: Sunday, March 22 - sheilds lake coffee - CANCELLED (again)

Am I overreacting? Should we keep going? Seriously Ron, I don't think you're overreacting. My (slightly Jameson's influenced) take on this bizarre science fiction movie that we're living in is that UFN we should not post group rides. That said, I'm flexibly (sp?) working from home and happy to rece...

"Normal", I'll take some of that. What are the chances though that by the weekend we'll be ordered to "shelter in place" as 7 million Bay Area folks have been just now :shock: :cry: :? 8)

Re: covid-19 and group rides

Late this Sunday night and my life as a non-essential Govt. of Canada employee is changing hourly. Telework is my new reality. Group riding and group coffee? Not for a while.

Thanks a lot, Craig. This is not the first time I’ve been reassured by a Tripleshotter who also happens to be an accomplished physician. :D
Thanks from me as well, Craig. Very valuable information.

Re: covid-19 and group rides

Thanks Martin and Lister. I'll be checking here regularly. For sanity's sake, as much as anything, I'll be out group riding. That said, until the curve flattens, I'll be avoiding coffee time and sending my love to all you lovely peoples remotely, http://media.giphy.com/media/xT9DPldJHzZKtOnEn6/giphy...

http://media.giphy.com/media/3ohs7UlQBA2daMbo40/giphy.gif The route, company, and frothed decaf are extremely enticing, but if it's too crazy out tomorrow morning I might not make the startline.
