Sunday: Take a kid mountain biking-cobble hill

One sure way to turn kids on to cycling is doing it with other kids. (Surely this is the founding philosophy of Tripleshot?).

This is organized by super volunteer Yvonne Mendel of Topaz bike Park, SIMBS and GVCC.

Re: For sale giant tcx slr2 cross bike.

Rob, thanks for listing. Can I put dibs on that for a youth rider? I can see about bringing him tonight after our practice.

Thanks Ann! Hmm, Bruno is closer to 5'9" and shorter legs than you, but it might work. I'll pm you.

Wanted to borrow, 2 cross bikes for 2 weeks

Hi all: The youth program has two new riders looking to try 'cross, but not quite ready to buy a bike until they try it. Approx 52 and 54cm sizes needed. Ideally I'd like to pick up the bikes tonight or tomorrow night for Tuesday-Friday practices. I will wash, lube and tune the bikes to your satisfa...

Re: Looking for a gate installer for crossfondo fences

Thanks Norm. I'll try Wayne.

I like stiles too, but these fences are 6 footer deer fences, and the owners aren't accepting regular public access. But a lockable chain link gate would do the trick.

Cheers

Re: TRIPLESHOT KIT * STORE IS OPEN & Kit try-on*

Thanks Mary. I know from doing this it’s a huge number of steps that’s not really visible from the outside. Thank you.

Looks like some folks are looking for this in the gear order forum. Maybe post there too, or direct them here?

Looking for a gate installer for crossfondo fences

The route this year crosses some high fences, and rather than ask the owners to cut them, I thought it might be better to offer to install a lockable neighbour gate. Anyone know a fence supplier/installer who might be interested in helping out? Each point would be accessible by vehicle.

Re: Small loaner cross bikes for youth program?

Thanks all for the offers. We seem to have 49 cm sized kids covered, at least for now.

I'm still looking for a bike for 4'9" girl, (46-7 cm?, 650 wheels?) and for 5' 10" Spanish exchange student with tons of road racing experience, looking to try cross. 54 cm?

Small loaner cross bikes for youth program?

We had our first youth cross practice yesterday and were a bit overrun with new riders, so our loaner bikes are all spoken for, and more kids asking. Cross for kids is like crack for addicts, so I expect loaners will be short term, and parents will buy as soon as they’re sure their kids like it enou...
