Re: Cross Group Size

I agree that tagging along the back of the B-train is problematic, especially with a large cross contingent, and is pretty easy to solve. However, splitting the crossers up into 2 groups is easier said than done. Option 1: Stick to set routes that people can learn and repeat. Then split the crossers...

Re: Sep 20 - Ambassadors Ride Hillside Quadra & Gordon Head

That was a huge success! Thank you everyone for your efforts and participation. Some takeaways:

2 neighbourhoods is probably good
Need to budget no more than 45 minutes per hood
Ending at a new cafe near the last hood works well

'Til next time!!

Sounds good Louise. If we don't see you at OBH we'll meet you at at 6:15.

Sep 20 - Ambassadors Ride Hillside Quadra & Gordon Head

I have it on good authority that Wayne & Jess are up for a tour of Hillside/Quadra and that a plan was brewing to combine this with Gordon Head (greg/L3?)... Most excellent!! https://media.giphy.com/media/3ov9jSmllAIKuthAe4/giphy.gif This requires route planners to agree on a start and finish point....

Re: Funday Sunday 15 Sep

I'm out. Flipping flap jacks for the daughter's birthday party. I might head out for an afternoon ride if there are others with late inclinations...

Have fun!

Re: Friday, Sep 13 - Ambassadors Ride

Indeed, the crickets are deafening!! 6:00am meet-up at OBH sounds good. See you then.

P.S. I found some neat little trails around little Johnny Tyres new office. Worth a check if we are around Haro woods...

Re: Friday, Sep 13 - Ambassadors Ride

Alert! Greg and L3 are not available this Friday. Need to change neighbourhoods...

Maybe best to have people post if they are riding and then we can pick neighbourhoods based on that. Post away!

Re: Friday, Sep 13 - Ambassadors Ride

Rolf, I love that you love this idea. :D

Assuming the route of UVic -> Gordon Head -> Cordova Bay -> Red Barn Coffee Project can be done in 1.5hrs, shall we meet in front of Misto Cafe on Foul Bay at 6:00am? L3/Greg, since y'all are also in the hot seat with Rolf, does this work for you?

Friday, Sep 13 - Ambassadors Ride

Hey Folks, let's get this ride going!! I propose we string the following three neighborhoods together and end up in a centrally located coffee shop that isn't too far from most people's work. UVic - Rolf Gordon Head - L3/Greg Cordova Bay/Broadmead/cemetary - L3 If different neighbourhoods make sense...

See you Wednesday!!!

I missed the final Cross Clinic. I imagine you covered riding / bunny-hopping over barriers, Perhaps some will be kind enough to give me a "crash" course in this...

Sounds good Rob. See you 7:30 at Fairbucks. I'll make sure the Garmin has a few routes to pick from (helps if I am navigating!).

Hopefully there are some Crossers that are not in Cumberland that still want to ride. I'm just getting over a bad cold and feel like I can definitely dog it for a 7:30am ride. Please post if you are interested and if you have a ride suggestion/request.

I'd love to join you but I will be participating in the time honoured tradition of being sick while taking care of sick kids during the first week of school.

I'm in, Thanks!
And with a new toy to boot!

I'll head to starbucks early for a quick coffee and bite to eat (low on groceries) if any others are inclined. Probably there at 7:00.
