What is your plan for the ride back.
Arrgh, more like guidelines, really...

The idea is to take East Beach Rd back part of the way and then join the trail we started on. I thought the road might provide some welcome respite; unless other possibilities present themselves.

Re: Sunday, June 30 MAGA Cross Ride

Well, friend, I don't hate you and I wish the suppositories were available that day (ahem, underwhelming support) but if I change my mind on the dates one more time I'll be facing a mutany at home.

Think of this as reconnaissance!

Re: Sunday, June 30 MAGA Cross Ride

This ride is a go! But the route has been altered considerably. Instead of risking life and limb on black diamond trails in an unknown Mountain Biking park, while far away from our wonderful medical system, we've opted to do the West Central section of the Olympic Discovery Trail from Port Angeles t...

Sunday, June 16th - Cross Fathers Ride

Any takers for a Cross Father's Day Ride on Sunday? Weather forecast looks good! Here's the route I was thinking of doing: https://www.strava.com/routes/19535303 It is similar to last weeks grand loop fail but skips Testament (that's tricky riding), includes Partridge Hill (a bit unknown to me), ski...

That looks like a fun little sufferfest. I would join you if I wasn't allergic to Wednesday mornings. Enjoy!!

Re: Sunday, June 9 - Testament, Partridge Hills and some speed trails

Well Rolf, you'll be pleased to know we followed in your footsteps and aborted the plan to ride Partridge Hill in favour of Hartland! (which was a hoot). I think I'll try this ride again but cut out Testament in order to save some energy. Coming down around Hartland on Ross/Durance Rd is nice and I ...

Re: Sunday, June 9 - Testament, Partridge Hills and some speed trails

Thx for the tips Rolf. It will be hard to reverse the flow of testament with this ride but we might cut out Partridge to keep the time reasonable...

Re: Sunday, June 9 - Testament, Partridge Hills and some speed trails

Roger that L3.

We can also adapt the ride to join you on some Hartland Trail and then tuck into Thetis. I cut that out of the route due to time constraints however. All depends on time...

Re: Sunday, June 9 - Testament, Partridge Hills and some speed trails

7:00 probably...? Once we are past the Partridge Hills leg the ride will pick up some pace. I'll be packing the R.O.L.F. 3000 which has cut down on the navigation time drain.

Hi L3! No switch bridge this time. Even better though, we could meet you near Blenkinsop and Mt Doug X Rd.

Re: Sunday, June 9 - Testament, Partridge Hills and some speed trails

Most excellent mashby! Shall we meet up at 6:30? That will give us a good cushion in case of intensive hike-a-bike.

Re: Sunday, June 9 - Testament, Partridge Hills and some speed trails

Enjoy the fundon't training JT. The centragas trail was steap but rideable last week. A nice change to help remind me that the ridge route is easier 😉 I think I road testament last week too. It was mostly rideable but I agree it has the most chance of cycloportage connecting in to partridge (I haven...

Sunday, June 9 - Testament, Partridge Hills and some speed trails

Hey Folks, I put together this fun ride. A little meandering into Commonwealth which eventually gets us to Durance Lake (Testament) and into the Partridge Hills. I've routed us around some of the trails in the North end of Hartland (for expedience sake) but eventually dip in through Corey Access Roa...

Re: Friday, June 7 - (Pearl) Jam to UVic

JT, as an afficianado of music from the eighties and nineties, I feel compelled to correct you on your Beastie Boys reference. Fight For Your Right was released in 1986. Although the Beastie Boys definitely enjoyed a 90s revitalization with Check Your Head and Ill Communication. https://media.giphy....
