Re: Friday June 11th

Stick around Stephane! You will pick up pretty quick. Our little pace line fell apart shortly after it started. We were going too fast and drop folks quickly. Next time, we do it right!

Re: Pickle Juice on Long Rides

Rolf, one solution that I found works for me is a Cal Mag Potassium supplement, taken preferably at night. According to some, absorption works better at night. But you have to be consistent. I had been experiencing cramping in the calves that ceased and have not returned after taking this stuff. I l...

Re: 3-ways

I do not mind 3 - ways at all! A new single piece tri suite emblazoned with triple shot colors would be great! Easter Bunny watch out!

Re: Wanted: Wheels

You could also try Chain Reaction Cycles http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/ I bought some Ultegra wheels from them for $362. 10 days or so for shipping.

Adam, the saddle at 40 K/Hr is so much more fun than the fence!

Re: Thursday 6:00 am corners

I will be there again Thursday. This is too good to pass up. In just a couple of laps, my confidence was boosted immensly! Simply pressing down on the outside pedal allowed for quicker, more confident cornering, single file at least! Three abreast is a different matter, at least for now. Looking for...

Re: Monday May 24 Sooke Road Race Prep

I am in for the bike ride. I'll be at the coffee shop at 6 and I do need a ride out with someone! I was out there today, camping overnight at China. The 47K point (95 K race distance) is just past Sombrio. There are some pretty good hills along the way!! The road surface is pretty good. They are wor...

Re: Sooke Road Race Prep

I would be very interested in riding the route on the 16th & 24th. 6 AM departure from Victoria sounds perfect.

If I could get a ride out with someone that would be great.

Cheers!

Re: Jumping on the "A" train

Thanks for this Josh. I think the key when jumping on a passing group is to make sure you let the rider who was pulling and is now falling back in line in front of you. Then, jump on their wheel. It is important to not interfere with the rythm of the passing group. Having had 2 groups pass me on thi...

Re: Robert_Cameron_Cycling_Series

I am interested in the road race as well. I just completed my first road race in Mill Bay/Duncan last weekend with the Master's Series. It was a blast! There was some chatter about riding the course before race day. How about Sunday May 23? We could maybe ride out to the turn around as a group then ...
