China Beach / Tansky ORV trails

Hiya; I'm bring bike out to China Beach this weekend. Does anyone have advice on trails in the area or at the Tansky rec site? It's described as both mountain bike and ATV and I'm trying to figure out if its forest trail or motorhead-armageddon.
Thanks!

Re: WTB (borrow/buy): Back-country backpacks

That's awesome Rob! I'll text if I don't see you on Greg's ride am. No pressure if your daughter isn't game. It's a big ask if it's still in play. Easier if it's outgrown and just collecting dust.

Re: WTB (borrow/buy): Back-country backpacks

Sounds awesomely retro Martin. Thank you! Mine (similar era) basically dissolved a few years ago. I haven't had a need to replace it until now... I'll PM my phone number. Please let me know when you have had a chance to dig it out!

WTB (borrow/buy): Back-country backpacks

Testing the waters for a couple of nights on the Juan de Fuca trail with the kiddo in July! Looking for two used backpacks. One adult tall 55-75L. One suitable for 8-10 year old (~30L small). Sell/Rent/Lend. Thanks for reading! Mark

Thank you for the replies. I'll forward to Luiz for follow-up.

Wanted: Family home to rent

My colleague is moving to Victoria from Brazil in June with his family. He's looking for a rental home that is close (reasonable walking distance) from an elementary school. 3 bedrooms and a yard are on his wish list. If you or anyone you know is looking for a responsible, professional family tenant...

Please tell me it's the killer bacon that blew Dolly and Alan's minds and not a previously unreported symptom of one-nine-CX-variant.

Definitely need a herd of angry protesters blocking and grabbing riders and hollering in French at Cross on the Rocks next year! That blew my mind. Great drone footage too!

Re: Dream Ride

No offense Ron, but your "dream" ride sounds like a regular old Sunday in the saddle. Here's mine: I wake up super early and it's soooo dark I can't see anything. I turn on the lights and nothing happens. Must be a black-out from the tornado last night. It's hard to get dressed in the dark and I can...

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. Things are serious; people who know actual stuff keep telling me that and I believe them. These are not normal time...

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...

Re: Sunday, March 22 - sheilds lake coffee

I'm committed to build our hotly-anticipated bike storage facility (garden shed) this weekend and can't do an epic. I'm up for a normal ride...

Just in case you didn't get the memo, I'll be having my coffee on the drive to Bowser while you're all riding this weekend. Have fun!

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...
