Re: Sunday, Aug. 18 - Excelsior, Corry, and Kallie's Korner?

I've been wanting to share these little trails in the Goward-Prospect neighbourhood: from Quayle to Excelsior to Echo. We could hit them on the way to Willis — Corry Road — Kallie's Korner — Bellamy — E&N , followed by Santiago's for eggs and coffee. 7:00 depart from Fort & Richmond? New routes! Ho...

I've thrown caution to the wind and booked an A-Frame Chalet (2 double beds) for September 28/29th. I'm happy to share the other bed and cram more people in as required.
Tell me more about this other bed.....
Sounds like it's yours

Re: Terranova Ride Idea

Okay, sounds like we can get a ride together. Based on the number of people offering to drive out to Sooke, I think cycling out to Terranova is in the cards (approx. 1 hr commute). Therefore, this is probably a 5hr ride that requires an early (6:00am) start with spousal support for a late return. Pl...

There is a meet-up at 5:00pm at Broad Street Cycles that rides out to the venue. At $10 a pop this looks like a good deal...

Re: Terranova Ride Idea

Bringing this back to the right thread... No worries, Ron, you can throw me under the bus anytime - I'm sure we'll get back there more than once again. I hear what Rolf is saying about the video but I really enjoyed it all the same. "Mountain 'mother riders" - funny. I think Rolf's real issue is he ...

Re: Sunday, August 11th Ride Options

Sweet! Let's do the Obs Hill Explore and maybe explore the Panama Flats single track along the way.

We can leave from Fairbucks at 7:30 and should be able to make 10:30 coffee no problem.

Sunday, August 11th Ride Options

Here are a few ride options to get some ideas going. I'm totally fine with other ideas or derivative works! Observatory Hill Explore - This is based on a typical solo ride I do but I've added a section to explore the forest around the Observatory and find out if the trails can connect to the Norther...

Re: Terranova Ride Idea

JT, I'm fine with pushing this ride into September. Could make for a good training ride for the Olympic Adventure trail (which is a training ride for the Cross Fondo - Woah, training inception), unless there is rider interest for August; in which case, I'll throw you under the bus.

Re: Terranova Ride Idea

Rolf, I like the idea of driving it there too. But when I floated the idea of taking the family car on a Sunday morning bike ride I was looked at with exasperation. I'm totally fine milking a ride from someone else though. Hint hint. I'll throw some dates together once we have an idea of rider inter...

Terranova Ride Idea

A few of us have talked about exploring more in the Sooke area and specifically tackling Terranova again. I've put together a very rough idea of what this ride could be: https://www.strava.com/routes/20931823 I avoided routing us down to the Sea to Sea Trail head as that made for a pretty long slog ...

Re: Olympic Adventure Trail ride *UPDATED*

JT and I had the same lightbulb moment when we both, in separate provinces on different time zones, realized that this adventures involves TWO rides and there are TWO of us. So we are booked in one of the cabins as well and we'd love to have a slumber party Ron but we will be bringing the smaller o...

Is anyone else looking to share accommodation? Please reply if your want to share a room and I can look into booking another cabin or chalet even.

Re: Monday the 5th - CX

Maybe. Depends on how I feel after Sunday's ride and how amenable my wife is.

UPDATE: Monday will be a saddle free day. I'm beat!
