Re: B1 = A2

Agreed, that if all are in agreement about whether it is a drop or no drop ride is key. As it is important not to drop people on a no drop ride, it is also important to seed yourself with the group that is best suited to your riding ability on that day.. as best you can. Although on a B ride there s...

Re: Discounts at Local Bike Shops

I believe Oak Bay Bikes and Russ Hayes, Trek-Pro-City,… maybe Broadstreet. You might want to call them first and ask.

Good question… El presidente, do you have an answer to this question?

Re: Recommendations for awesome women's road/race bike

I love my specialized Ruby elite. I got both of mine off used Victoria. Buying secondhand is the way too go!! a bike fitting with Dave and Barb is a worthwhile investment too!

Thanks!

I felt some trepidation about riding back with the group after experiencing a crash, and seeing how long it takes my old body to heal! I started to wonder why I do this and why I don't just ride on my own or with a few friends. Friday's ride reminded me of why I love riding with you tripleshotters. ...

calling new Michael in the fluorescent kit - footage of the

HI Michael, You told me at the xmas party that you had my crash on video… I'd like to see it… and I also hear that you were talking about it on the farm team ride and it was 'out of the blue' with no one else around…YES, that is why I was so shocked when it happened and call human (and glove) error ...

Re: Thanks for all the help with the Christmas party

It's all about location, location, location, John. Yours were the first meatballs, thus why they were finished first. Sorry to burst your bubble. If you bring some to my place, I will test them for you and give my honest opinion. Chris will be away a chunk of this week, and any leftovers he's made w...

Thanks for all the help with the Christmas party

Thank you to everyone who lent a hand at the Christmas party, and there were a lot of you! I hate to mention names when I thank people, as I might miss someone. So, I will state all the tasks that were done (and hope I don't miss any) and send out a general thanks to all those who helped. I apprecia...

Crash helmet replacement program

If you get in a crash on your bike and you need to replace your helmet, see if your helmet manufacturer has a crash helmet replacement program. When I had to replace my Giro MIPS helmet, I closed them got a reference number and sent it in and in a few days they sent me back a new helmet for over 40%...

Xmas truck parade route and schedule and Xmas party

Hi All, We had this issue a few years ago, the Xmas truck parade is the same time as our Xmas party. Asides from the obvious sadness that you can't stand for hours waiting to see the trucks AND get your share of yummy potluck food and Hoyne beer, there is the challenge of getting into James Bay.

Re: Morning road conditions of late?

On the farm team there are some weather guys, professionals, and this is what I have learned. The site that Barton mentioned measures the temperature up higher and the temperature we are most concerned with is on the ground. When the nights are clear, cold and calm the ground temeperature drops sign...
