Re: Friday, April 26 - Hidden Paths

I should have added that taking back our land from the land barons of Oak Bay won't be easy.
Plus, there are some big-assed animals living in them overgrown footpaths...

Re: Friday, April 26 - Hidden Paths

I would tend to side with Julie on this one and say that if there is any cost involved in returning these public paths to public use, that cost should be borne by the homeowners. It might be just one of my peccadillos, but there is something about the private usurpation of public goods that irks me....

Re: Friday, April 26 - Hidden Paths

I went and got my cross bike back from the shop. So I will be able to join you on this adventure.
Will have to get a raincheck on massaging John's scalp...

Re: Friday, April 26 - Hidden Paths

I'd like to join you but do you think it's doable on my road bike? My cyclocross rig is in the shop for repairs. I'll be sure to wear my Hotel Z outfit, in case there is a chance of naughty behaviour. If not, I'll just ride with Johnny Tyre, and massage his head for fun https://media.giphy.com/media...

What we're saying is that we don't mind if we have a 'small' group together for this ride, and that we will follow Rolf wherever he leads us...

Re: Holiday Ride?

Louise --I see no one has posted and it's nearly 11pm but I'll meet you at the Oak Bay High school and do the usual Friday ride with you and whatever other lurkers show up. It's raining right now, so the roads will be wet tomorrow and I'll be on my winter bike (fenders) Rolf will likely be there too...

Re: April 7th - Big Ride to Harbour View

Rolf, how about we meet up to drink coffee 6:45ish and gossip about John at Starbucks--leave there by 7 and then join up with the others at the Switchbridge by 7:30. Then when your menopausal hot-flashes kick in, you can turn around and go home, maybe take part in some kind of ancient baseball cerem...

All Ages & Abilities Cycling Network

As part of the City of Victoria's Active Transportation Advisory Committee, I've just become aware of a few things coming up that might be of interest to cycling commuters. This is news to me as much as it is to you, (and please don't blame me if you think these plans are really stoopid!) but there ...

Re: Big Ride to Harbour View

Rolf, if you haven't been to big "Little League opening ceremony day" it's as boring as watching paint dry, with dull speeches, special thanks to our sponsors, yada, yada, yada. Just saying I'm with John here. Your kids may appreciate you being there on opening day, but ultimately they will grow up ...

Re: Helmets

There's actually been a Cochrane Review on the subject, and while this is somewhat dated, I don't believe the guy in the video who asserted that there is definitive proof that helmet laws reduce cycling. It's never been properly studied. https://www.cochrane.org/CD005401/INJ_bicycle-helmet-legislati...
