Re: Feeling Soggy?

From the Times: "The amount of rain recorded at different locations in the region can vary widely. At the Gonzales station [King George Terrace], 98.2 mm of precipitation was recorded in November." Maybe you were not as wet as you thought you were.

Re: Kit Design Ideas - WE NEED YOU!!!!

I like your designs Neil but I think light off white colour on jerseys has been critized as dirt enhancing in the past. Also, predominately black shorts do not show dirt, are slimming and can be worn with non matching jerseys.

Re: Kit Design Ideas - WE NEED YOU!!!!

Hope this works. One more because I like the process so much. Don't worry Peter I won't feel alienated if you don't like it. I do like Neil's argyle designs. Orange is okay. So is pink. Rolf has a lot of alliteration talent.

House Rental

Nancy and I plan to head to California again this winter for a couple of months. If you know someone who might be interested in renting our home at a modest cost while we are away please send me a PM. We are not in need of a house sitter as we know someone who could house sit if we wanted to go that...

5:45 or so is fine Eric, upstairs in the main lobby area. We will meet Andy MacDonald, who is generously providing vehicle support, on the ferry.

Re: 2017 Big Loop Ride - Sunday, July 16th

Hope you folks had a good ride. After Sooke my heart rate was about 20 beats higher than it would ordinarily be at the same level of effort. Hasn't happened since the last time I rode distance with Eric and Heather Simonsen. So I am blaming them. Then it started to rain. Time to turn around. Maybe n...

Paved shoulders should be a bicycle lane in law, otherwise unnecessary collisions, impractical cycling behaviour and questionable legal results occur. In my view, the trial judge who was privvy to all the facts, including I think the fact that this collision occurred on the missing portion of the E ...

With the increasing age of all TS members some of whom are fortunate enough to be no longer working for a living perhaps there is enough desire for the addition of a post dawn post coffee ride?
