Re: Quadra May Long Weekend - CycloQuest

Good chance I’ll be bringing the fam up for this if the weather is good. We would be camping.

Re: May 2 - Ride for Water - Chilliwack

If there’s a bunch of us let’s definitely get an air bnb otherwise I’ll just sleep in the back of my truck. I have room for 5 passengers in my truck and 5+ bikes in the back plus gear so carpooling is certainly an option. And the Comox ride looks pretty awesome also. Perhaps we do a similar thing fo...

I’m lying in bed in cardiac short stay and reading this post-ablation. We can all have a sample size of one to look at percent success rates of treatment.

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

I think is great that the article has generated so much conversation in the club. It was just an opinion piece but does represent the view of many people in the general public and I see it as a good reminder for why we need to continue to be ambassadors for cycling. The author makes several claims t...

Re: May 2 - Ride for Water - Chilliwack

I’m down for doing that. I’d probably just camp out for it to save some money. Or take the fam and hit the hot springs at Harrison afterwards.

I’ll put it in the calendar.

Re: Sunday epic?

Claire and Mark, come ride with Ron. It’s likely going to be soaking wet and we will need all the body heat we can get when huddling to keep warm as we suffer through a mechanical while getting more and more hypothermic. It sounds like there’s a small enough group of us to go as one.

Re: WANTED - Gravel Drop Bars

Hey Martin. Briefly, dirt drop bars and gravel bars have a flare (drops are vertically bent away) and sweep (drop portion horizontally bent out). Reasons are: - better on single track. Meant to be primarily ridden in drops where you have more control. - a more natural hand position - shallower drop ...

Sunday epic?

What’s the plan for Sunday folks? No multiple rides competing for attention?

I’d love to get out for some distance Sunday am.

Oak bay stocks both the cow chipper and wood chipper. https://salsacycles.com/components/category/road_handlebars/woodchipper You can have a look at them downstairs. It’s a very popular bar with tour divide riders due to the small drop and wide fla...

Re: Sunday longer cross Dec 22

Claire I’m definitely out. I had to work all day to Finish up a house and I’m sleeping in and then hopping on my rollers. I’m getting better but still low energy.

Enjoy your Sunday ride in whatever form it takes.
