Re: CAKE!

Sometimes I hear a sardonic voice in my dreams with a mildly pom accent. It usually says "pedal harder, you bastard!" But it moves me nonetheless. I'm seriously considering becoming a Go Vegan! too -- but one who still eats smoked-bacon burgers, tuna sashimi, duck confit, pork rinds and all 2,963 de...

Thanks again, Ian! It was yummy.

Man, you bake and you can count -- you're quite a catch, you know? :wink:

Re: Cyclocross Season Wrap Up: Shawnigan Lake School

That's great, cyclocrossers! Well done all. Roland: I hope the CX community recognizes you for the one-man booster you are. Lister: I'm less than 3x Liam's age. It would be nice to have some other young people's company early in the morning. :wink: I can't keep up with the other young 'uns (Josh, Ro...

Re: my very own gloating thread :D

Sorry you felt abandoned last week, Josh. I'd think of it more as having been one more chance to train harder than anyone else. 5 Tolmies while sick -- that is either tough, or stupid, or both. I've had glands the size of golf balls since hills last week. Every time I think I'm getting better, a new...

So, Michael... you must have a whole lot of "broken" bikes uselessly cluttering up your garage. Come Spring, let's talk. :)

Re: Tripleshot Xmas Party 2009

Damn -- sounds like a good time. I will be taking the parents and in-law to Butchart's that night. :|

If we did it Sunday night instead then the debauchery would not be restrained by: "Ugh, gotta get up and ride early tomorrow." Just my two bits. :idea:

I need at least 2 of the 5 to be female. Then I'll come. You're a dirty birdie. :wink: The best you can probably hope for is that Alan rides bare-legged, as he did this morning. :shock: Or, if you want to do the hills nice and slow for a change, you could stick with me -- I usually start crying lik...

Re: Remembrance day Ride anyone??

Thanks, Dave. But I've been foregoing the farm team for hills because I'm sick of being back of the bus on the latter. As a wise man once said: to ride hills better, ride more of them. Roland: for hills we appear to have at least Fast Lawless, Fister, Fast Erickson (sorry Jeremy) and me. And I'm pre...

Re: Remembrance day Ride anyone??

I don't want to take anything from TSC convention, :roll: but I find the Sunday ride takes up a lot of the day and the later start upsets circadian rhythms already painfully established by 5:30 wake-ups. Would anyone join me for a regular Wednesday morning hills ride at 6? I don't think I'd drag mys...

Re: Cross in the mud - Slugget Farm

Great stories. Great photos. Great results. Thanks for sharing! :D

I think my fave shot is of Jen going downhill, eyes closed, trying to click her ruby slippers together, saying "There's no place like home."

I already put my vote in for Norm so I'm blocked from adding Pete too. So instead I put Pete down for Coach of the Year: http://www.cyclingbc.net/itoolkit.asp?pg=COACH_OF_THE_YEAR "Volunteer" is probably more accurate generally speaking, but I've benefited from his very subtle and supportive coachin...

Uff! Great crackling, crunching sounds! Hope you're okay.

Looks like it was a beautiful day for racing.

Edit: Ah -- just saw your race report. I guess this crash was the other week.

Re: Ditch Dude Dave

When Alan and I arrived at Emerg. we were sort of relieved and pissed at the same time to see Dave (Spiers, Al) alone and checking himself in with the admin clerk. We stood around for quite a while until he got a room and an intern got him into one of those sexy little blue numbers. I left the hospi...
