Re: Wednesday May 29 Farm Cross

Mashby, I'll join you as long as you navigate. I was going to ride with Johnny Tyre but he's going road and we'll catch up with his bald mug at coffee...

Baldness is so sexy, wouldn't you say?Image

Re: Sundy May 26 Cross Ride

It's true, we run a tight ship here, but we never call out (at least publicly) how crappy some people are at da English
You're a cruel school marm, Professor Johnny Tyre... Cut the dude some slack. Sheesh...

Re: 40K Individual Time Trial or TTT - June 2nd.

I am interested. Let's try to have a practice this coming Thursday with our team.
Do we have a team name? I like to think of musical names, Maybe "Joe's Garage", that classic by Frank Zappa.

Re: 3 FERRIES RIDE MAY 26

I'll meet you guys in Ganges, but I'll be coming from the north, from Foetus Island via Chemainus, Crofton and Vesuvius. So for me, It'll be a four ferries ride, one more ferry than you three ferry dudes. Unless some of you want to ride early, and meet me in Chemainus, then we can backtrack together...

Data geeks, look out.

An interesting article on the potential for problems in the pursuit of health. The article conforms to the aphorism, "those who think they're healthy, haven't had enough tests..." https://quillette.com/2019/05/17/a-contrarian-view-of-digital-health/ Full disclosure: I wrote a book about medical scre...

Re: A question for the doctors: how many Tylenol can I take?

I am not a doctor, though I think George Clooney played one on TV, nor would I ever give prescribing advice but you should know that, like any drug there is a dose-response related to ibuprofen that can influence its toxicity. Health Canada and numerous other drug regulators around the world have is...

Today's B1 ride

Too many Alans on today's ride. Reminding me of Michael Leunig's famous Alan cartoon.
I'm particularly fond of the Blessing of the Alans by the Archbishop.

Re: Friday, April 26 - Hidden Paths

This has nothing to do with recovering these hidden paths but is the kind of thing I would do to Johnny Fyfe if we worked together.

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'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...
