Re: Sunday Feb 7 LSD Alternative

Thanks Tim! That was the kind of ride that makes me SO thankful that I've dragged us all back to Victoria. The scenery was almost distracting from the ride - the pinkish glow of the sunrise over the Olympics, the little waterfalls glimpsed in the rainforest here and there, the gorgeous coves out in ...

Re: Savannah, Georgia

Enjoyed reading your trip highlights Rolf! Travel is balm for the soul, eh? Even if it involves plenaries and conference air conditioning (I'm guessing....) Your post has made my feet itchy. Thanks. Greg will have to chime in but he lived in Florida/Georgia for quite a time and I did hear about the ...

Re: Ideal Winter Bike?

Andrew, Technically I do meet the minimum of 3 :D - although that includes my multi-season road ride, my mountain bike and my beach cruiser. Now that we have an official bike room, I guess we should start trying to fill it up. We used to have more but....thieves. As for my sunlight flap, cycling was...

Re: ISO: As-thermal-as-possible winter booties

John - Thank you for the giggle. I needed that. Its been a long week(end). Claire - your description of your booties and your circulatory shortcomings (glad you at least have some ) ;-) , matches my own. I just switched over to a pair of pearl izumi booties with I don't know how thick, but pretty th...

Re: Thursday am ride?

Thanks everyone. So it sounds like this isn't exactly a come one and come all ride? Given that the groups have been small lately and I have been on my bike a total of 3 times since Dec. 24 and am nursing a minor skiing injury, maybe I won't be able to find that critical mass to make up a team with m...

Thursday am ride?

Wondering if the Thursday morning ride is still happening? If so, can someone provide details? Where and when does it typically wrap up?

Just to clarify: the "fair game if you fail to show" thing isn't an indiscriminate, anything-goes slag-a-rama. It's not simply about "if you don't show up"; it's about "if you should show up, but don't."

This has me wondering, what happens if you do show up, but you shouldn't?

Re: Sunday, Longer

Greg and I are going to arm wrestle to see who gets to go on this ride. After also being off the bike, it sounds GREAT and the change of scenery is also inspiring!

What time do you think you'd be passing by the switch bridge? Whoever wins will likely be meeting you there.

Re: One last ride in 2015 • Thursday 12:30 pm

Still frickin' sicker than sick. But maybe the hubby will be interested....will pass it on when he gets home from some silly space movie.

Love the gentlemanly start time.

Re: Confirm Christmas Eve Route?

Thanks, I did read that post but wasn't sure if Bleinkinsop would be included (I know it sometimes isn't on Fridays in bad weather) and it will affect my timing to meet up enroute. Also wondering about the Uvic/box portion, since that is another option for me to join up.

Re: Festive 500: a Plan

Still trying to work out ride-joining locations from our new location (near the ferndale popper). I'm hoping to do the Xmas Eve ride and wondering what time y'all expect to make it to the top of Ash Hill?

Think I'll sleep in a bit and meet up there.

TIA

Re: Lights!

Hi Andrew,

I think the short battery life of mine might have been operator error since it worked fine the next two times Greg or I used it. But the strap that holds the battery to the frame did break after two usages. Tried it in a bento box the other day and it seemed to work.

Re: It's icy out there, folks

Went out for a run at 730 and was slippin' and slidin' and thinking of you guys. I'm sorry to hear about the crashes! Now that I have a) 2 functional wheels, and b) family in town to watch kids in the early morning hours, this weather better not persist and ruin my cycling plans! Unless, that is, it...
