Re: Victoria to Nanaimo before Nanaimo2Victoria

I think we should have each other's cell phone numbers, just in case. If each person on tomorrow's ride wants to send me their cell numbers email me at: cassels@uvic.ca" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false I'll compile them into a document and make copies to hand out at the switch bridge, o...

Re: Victoria to Nanaimo before Nanaimo2Victoria

I'm in. Advice to the team? Bring extra tubes to deal with the flat-inducing shoulder of the road.

They concluded: "A low thigh circumference seems to be associated with an increased risk of developing heart disease or premature death. The adverse effects of smal...

I'd be happy to 'lead' a B-ride on Friday--for the sole reason that I am familiar with the planned route and can tell people where to go (which I like). The 'old Friday Ride' is also what we typically do on Wednesdays with the TS farm team leaving from in front of St. Matthias Anglican Church (600 R...

Riding to Parksville

I'm planning on riding to Parksville on Thursday morning to spend a week with the family up there. There's no room in the car due to all the kid/ beach stuff so I'm pedaling. Anyone care to join me for the ride, or at least part of it? I'll plan to leave Victoria around 7am. From past trips it's abo...

Whassup Mike? Do you need a cool-down ride after your self-transcendant triathalon today?
Dave Spears and I are in for the ride tomorrow. See you at Starbucks.

For the newbies, you should also know we have a Wednesday Triple Shot "Farm Team" ride, which is just a more civilized, less testosterone-driven pace ending with a small sprint at the end for coffee at the Cook Street Mocha house. We leave from the corner of Richardson and Richmond at 6:00am on Wedn...

Something to work towards. As my first race (to finish) it was a ton of fun. A big "Bravo Zulu" (Navy term fo...

It's a pretty cool ride. I did it on Canada day a few years back and it took about 2.5 hours to get up and 45 minutes to get down. It'll take longer if you're riding a unicycle or a tandem. Glad to see Windsor Park is canceled so Pete is left without a weasley excuse to get out of it.... Be sure to ...

I'm totally into this. We took the family to Ireland two summers ago and it's a great place to pedal your butt off. Very civilized, in fact--Tea for breakfast, Guinesss for dinner, and whatever pub fare you can pack in in-between. Gotta like that. Here's a bit of trivia: What ethnic group--after the...

Dolly told me today she has given Eric permission, so he has no valid excuse not to be in. Besides, I'm only in because there are a few other willing souls to haul my ...

This link will take you to the Oak Bay News, and the latest news on community efforts to make Oak Bay more cycle friendly.

Will you take a "painting" from me too? I was there on that ride but was not, repeat, was not involved in any way, shape or form. I'll kick in some to help take the sting out of the insurance bill.
