when is a ride a "group ride"?

Things are changing really fast on the Covid front. Sad (but not bad) to see Tripleshot aligning with the majority of organizers in suspending activities with the word "group" in them.

Re: March 22 - Snoozfest

Thank you Ron, for the inspiring ideas! Since I wasn't able to join Sunday's ride last week, it'll make good inspiration for this week. I can see an argument for skipping coffee (and might supply that argument), but I'm not seeing a plague risk to tearing around on a bicycle in the woods. Seems much...

WTB (borrow) - small women's road bike

This is a request for the women of tripleshot of smaller stature. Please read below and reply, pm, or text me at 604-720-7955 if you can help. My wife, Ting, has expressed cautious interest in joining the tripleshot women's clinic this spring. I have been encouraging this, against my better judgemen...

Re: Non-Bike Question about Kids Summer Programs and English Learning

Have a look at the Victoria summer activity guide. There are many activity based summer camps that are age appropriate and would give her social time with peers. She'd probably make some friends.

Re: coffee. I have a stainless French press and espresso maker for when I car camp. It doesn’t take long to boil water so both can be brought if so desired.
