Re: Tuesday AM Paceline

On the modifications for winter, I was wondering the same thing. For now, the C group seems to be progressing rapidly on the technique/timing side on the sprint days with a jam at the end, and in power benefits from hills. I think they could still use those. C riders, thoughts? The B and A groups m...

Re: Winter Riding Etiquette

Re: picking glass out of tires - I carry a pair of fine-tipped forceps in my repair kit. If I flat during a ride, I use them to probe for glass shards before installing/inflating/exploding a new tube. I also inspect my tires for shards at least once a week. Gimme a break....I derive a certain Zen fe...

Sunday's 200k Rando ride

Did today's 200km Rando ride: out to Sooke, back to Victoria, out to Sidney, around the peninsula, back downtown via the waterfront. Nine showed up, six finished.

Reasons not to cycle in southern Alberta

Let's just say that they now owe me....BIG TIME! Having grown up in Newfoundland, I'm no stranger to wind. But, SGJ, 4hrs of bucking 50km/h headw...

Tuesday's "B" ride

Still new to the TS scene, but having read the official info on the Tuesday "speed ride", I figured the B ride option sounded viable...two laps of the box, two laps of Beacon Hill. How hard could that be, right? Wrong. Things panned out as expected until Norm joined in and all of a sudden I was left...

Re: V2N and back

Hi all; As a relatively new club member, I just wanted to thank the TSers on the N2V for all the encouragement and camaraderie that helped get me through the day. It was a great feeling rolling in together at the end as a group. Cheers, John P.S. Some of you may have noticed the red bandana I was we...

Hi Roland....

I'm a new TS club member. Would you happen to have any large jerseys left?
