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...

Re: Cycling laws

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 ...

Re: Friday Post Dawn Post Coffee Ride

Redux #3 tommorow. If the attendance pattern continues its progression from 7 to 3 to ? there might be -1 persons tommorow or 1.2857142 persons (depending on whether one assumes a linear or parabolic progression). Either way, barring a downpour, I should be there, to at least earn some Rolfeoffian c...

Friday Post Dawn Post Coffee Ride

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? My thinking is a Friday ride commencing with coffee with the regular crew at Shoal Point at 7:30. Roll out...

Re: Yes there IS a ride on Thurdays

Love the Thursday ride but retirement is getting in the way these dark days. I don't know how Mark F gets up for 6 a.m. rides in the winter which to me is more challenging than riding 300 kms. If anyone is looking for company on a daytime ride please send me a pm.

Re: Tuesday B1 crash

Ouch. It is good to hear that those involved seem to be recovering well. Kudos also to Julie for posting a deer friendly perspective. I realize deer (not to mention racoons, pot holes and black ice) can be a nuisance or dangerous but many motorists say the same thing about cyclists and we don't have...

Hey Mark, I think you might need to set your route map setting to public.
