Re: Thursday TTT pedestrian safety

It would be foolish to disagree with anything Martin wrote, ...but......that's the most dangerous crosswalk on campus. I have never crossed there (15 years) without some concern about being hit. Buses never slow down and basically dare anyone to step out. Certainly, from the perspective of the pedes...

iTT_Thurs

Just a thought...

Masters Nationals Course: Meet at Clover Pt. at 6 am and leave at 30 sec intervals? Maybe someone can run a list of depart and arrival times? Coffee at PV with the TTT people.

Carbon_Wheels

On the sufferfest ride this morning I did a pull, rolled to the back, and then from the back, looked behind me to see where we were as far as following cars were concerned. Bad timing. The group slowed and I ran into the back of James, I think it was James (I'll edit this if I am wrong). My wheel ca...

Re: VCL#6

Despite a less that perfect forecast, we had the largest turn out so far last night, 76 racers. Big thank you to David Hill and Mark Ford for their hard work at the registration 'desk'. The C race finish was a little confusing, sorry to those who weren't sure what was going on. A group of seven lapp...

VCL#6

Thanks for all of the nice comments (VCL#5 thread). I am back here (the TS Racing forum) for the first time since last week and only just noticed. Great that this is working out for lots of people. Tomorrow is the third of four Speedway races. It looks like the forecast has improved a little. My adv...

Re: VCL#5

Excellent evening of racing. Lots of racers in each category. There was a crash in the B race that resulted in some look-the-other-way road rash, which will going to hurt like hell in the shower, but not stop anyone from racing next week ;-). Great A-race with a 3-man breakaway - launched by Andrew ...

VCL#5

The Speedway races this evening start at 6 pm. Sign-up at 5:30 pm. C race is first. B race at 6:30 pm and A race at about 7:10 pm. Note, we reduced the entry fee last week (from $15 to $10) to reduce the impact of the $8 (one-time) charge for numbers and racing chips. It's $15 this week (and an addi...

Re: VCL_2&3

Huge thank you to Roxanne Stedman and Joe Barrett. Quite a few first-timers, which is always fun. About 60 participants altogether. Great racing - very close finishes in all three races. Some more volunteers next week would be helpful.

Re: VCL_2&3

Speedway Races (April 25th) 5:30 pm: sign-in open EDIT: I missed the important point that there is an additional $8.00 (one time fee for number and chip). To offset that expense, for tonight only, the Tripleshot portion of the fee will be REDUCED from $10 to $5. So, $5.00 (Tripleshot) + $5.00 (Timin...

Second race of the series is tomorrow at 10 am (Caleb Pike) and the third is Wednesday at the Speedway, the race we host. I have a list of people who offered to help out.... I'll be contacting you shortly. Keep in mind that the Speedway is a great venue for spectating as well. I believe the forecast...

They can be printed and signed at home... parents/guardians do not have to sign on site. I suffered a slight ankle sprain today and probably won't race tom...

VCL_launch_party_tonight

Sorry, should have posted this sooner. There's a 'wrap-up' (2017) and VCL (Victoria Cycling League) launch party this evening at Oak Bay Rec Centre (7pm). Come out and learn about local racing for almost all levels of skill/fitness (A, B and C races).

Re: Wednesday Hills

Hi Claire et al., Wednesday Hills is still a thing, but as mentioned above, the numbers vary. I usually ride straight to Caddy Bay and start at around 6:05 am. Sometimes there are people already on their first climb, sometimes a few show up later, sometimes I've completed the set alone. I'll add tha...

Re: VCL_Speedway_2018

A few notes from this evenings VCL meeting (Mar 12): Racing will be a little more expensive this year due to a once/yr fee ($5) for a timing chip plus a $5 fee per race for managing the timing data (new total = $15/race). Disk brakes allowed for VCL races, but note, they are not allowed in UCI sanct...
