Nanaimo tomorrow

As a sequel to Hurricane, I am planning to ride to Nanaimo tomorrow (north side Jingle Pot), via the Mill Bay ferry and the back roads, and after a lunch break to ride most or all of the way back. If you are interested in joining me for all or part of this ride let me know.

Alpine Training Camp - Hurricane Ridge

How does a slow hill climber train for a week long 900 km event with 23,500 metres of climbing? I don't know but I came up with the idea of hosting and participating in an alpine training camp which basically consists of camping at Dungeness spit (altitude would be better) in my Westfalia (site 49 o...

Saturday June 6 - Hilly

I don't know where Barton has gone, perhaps some secret training with Doug. In his absence, Rich T and I are planning to leave Disco on Menzies at 7 a.m. on Saturday for a fun hill ride in Metchosin. The route is https://www.strava.com/routes/2495135 ,133 km with 2200 meters of vertical. Should take...

Re: Public shaming for all you non-volunteers

For others who may be thinking of helping out my plan is to do some early Tolmie repeats, join the Sunday ride and then go to the legislature. If the threat of shaming by Alan does not motivate you either perhaps a cycle of cycling activities will.

Re: Public shaming for all you non-volunteers

Alan, I can do a an 11 until 2 shift. I have to say though that given the facility at which someone like Steve with obvious mental health issues is able to parry your poetic smackdowns my offer of volunteerism has little to do with your threat of public shaming. Nancy may help out as well.

Re: Saturday April 11

Great ride today Barton even though it took an hour for my hands to warm up after I got home. Matheson is a beauty, 246 metres of vertical which to my knowledge is the most in greater Victoria. My Garmin showed 2530 metres overall.

Re: My power metrics on the first group on todays thursday T

Sounds like an interesting experiment. I am willing to try it. Your polar orientation is faulty though as it is the northern portion of the circle that is easier and near the students union building.

Re: Garmin 500

Thanks Roland and Kate. Problem solved and I almost feel faster already. Roland I think I should keep the old one as a back-up unless you or someone else wants to buy it for a modest sum ($40). It still works but is showing its age (4 years).

Sherri, you missed an excellent ride. Trevor graciously towed Mandy, Christian and me around for 15 laps.

Sorry Lister. The Christmas cake may have to wait. I'm in despite the absence of compatibility with Trevor.
