Re: This Mornings Crash

Any more update on Jim? I just called the VGH and he is still there. Anyone seen him lately? How's he doing and have you heard when he will be headed home?

Advice needed on lights!

With all the discussion of late about how to help avoid accidents, one suggestion was lights. My light is good but I want a better one so I can do my part. I went to MEC today and got a Light Motion 650 for $129. http://www.mec.ca/product/5038-789/light-motion-urban-650-light/[url][/url] The brighte...

Re: This Mornings Crash

That is such a bummer for Jim! I'm glad his head is okay!! I was at the front on Mandy's wheel. So I too am wondering what lessons we could learn from this. Asides from the need for the city to have more Cougars and less deer!! How often do you hear about an accident with a cougar?! What I recall is...

Re: Budding into someone else's sprint

Thanks for bringing this issue up on the forum Alan. I know in the grand scheme of things it is a super minor issue, so not to make too much of a deal about it.. but it could also be a safety and comfort issue. I brought it up the other day after being pushed out of our sprint by incoming riders (wh...

Re: Support TS Youth Rider at National Championships!

Great fundraiser with Oregano's; you get some of their yummy food and get to give money towards local baseball and help out a young tripleshot rider (even if I can't score against her in team handball!) We love getting their pizza dough and it's a great place to go when you are on the fly and need t...

Looking for a bike for a guy 5 foot 9

My stepson's 18 year old friend is looking for a used bike since his was stolen (lock and all). He is about 5 foot 9, so a 54 inch or 56 inch frame maybe. He is looking for either a fixed gear, an old road bike or a cross bike. He has max $800 to spend. Let me know if you have anything or know of an...

Wanted - old school mountain bike for someone 6 foot 2.

Another bike stolen! The lock was cut and my partner's old steel frame mountain bike was stolen from downtown. He is looking for a replacement. Just an old school mountain bike, no shocks needed or disc brakes or any of that fancy stuff (I've already spent most of the family's bike budget :). If you...

From the folks at the Observatory

HI All, I try to avoid it as much as I can, but some of you love to ride it. SO here is a note from the site operator at the Observatory, pointing out that it is not a right to ride there, but a privilege (weird privilege in my books) so obey the rules or you won't have that privilege anymore. Hello...

The other day I was wearing your Tibco kit and some asked if I rode with you… haha. The second time someone thought I rode for Tibco. I'm such a poseur! If you c...

Hey, you are giving these cute little critters a bad wrap. I've pet them and eaten them and no leprosy for me. Are you offended by their cute little fuzzy legs, a no-no for you hard core cyclist types?

The no drop ride is going really well. The women who are a bit stronger are pulling a bit longer and those who are just start...

Re: B 2, Dropping Riders

I have noticed on rides lately that we haven't been passing the word up the line be it "car back", "steady up?" etc. When the person being dropped calls out 'STEEDY UP' (and call it early) all the people up the line need to pass it up. Same with car back etc. Just some more reminding… maybe we all a...

Your rat must have been out clubbing…he's a little out of his range. The rat exterminator who came to our house a few years back said in the business "Oak Bay" is "RAT Bay".
