Re: Jan 19 - Post Snow Ride

You guys have Skirt Mountain all wrong. Its brilliant AND gravel! Take that Obs Hill! But it is not gnar. That's what a reverse traversal of Millhouse is for...

Re: Jan 19 - Post Snow Ride

Almost killed us JT. This route comes with more gnar and more climbing. Full death route!

We may end up more filthy than the typical clientele of B&B, but I'll give it a go.

Jan 19 - Post Snow Ride

Yikes, it's almost 2:30 and no ride posted!! I'm up for a really good ride; an empty the tanks sort of thing. I propose a double skirt with gnar (8/10 on the gnarly scale?) ride if there is any interest. Probably not everyone's cup of tea. I can be talked out of it if the trails are still frozen and...

I'm out. Black ice on commute home was scary... Which gives me the perfect excuse to have a beer at the pub tonight 🙄

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.

I'm a maybe.

A) I don't want to fall, get hurt, and ruin a fantastic Sunday ride
B) My bicycle will be entering an awkward Chrysalis phase on Wednesday...

And here's a bizarre, somewhat related GIF...

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

I'll leave from Fairbucks at 7:30 and snake up through CHGC. I think 8:15 at the Blenkinsop Greenway and Lochside is most likely.

JT, I'll give it you straight. Yes you are. It's a good thing you are riding with L3 tomorrow. She'll straighten you out in a jiffy.

L3, 7:50 is optimistic...

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

Geoff, that might make a good route for nasty weather too. Whatever we decide we just need a clear meetup time and place for L3. I think JTs proposal meets L3s thetis requirements better though... Just sayin'

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

Okay, given the weather forecast I'm all for aborting the Skirt climbs. I'll be at Fairbucks at 7:30 and do whatever.

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

That sounds good L3. I'm pretty easy going about where we go and don't have my mind set on anywhere in particular. I've been toying around with eventually doing this ride: https://www.strava.com/routes/23351560 And it could be adapted by cutting out the Millhouse exodus to Skirt Climbs (x2) and just...

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

Just to be clear (So I am not perceived as the irresponsible villain), I see nothing wrong with biking down a sanctioned muddy trail and enjoying the already churned up and muddy ground (Thetis!). Not that I would aim to ride only muddy trails, but they come up. Needlessely destroying flower beds ai...
