Re: 30th December - Bikes n' brunch ride

The few clips I took are up here, Norm. You can find the embedded video at the tail-end of the 2019 section. :P

I didn’t have time to join you guys for brunch. :( But if others took photos, I’d be pleased to throw up a gallery...

Re: Tuesday or Wednesday or both?

Tuesday for me, at least!

Maybe a classic UVic/Haro/Oak Bay to close out 2019?

TS Photos - New Galleries: Ride Videos and Flats

Whether you're back at work today, or still eating Christmas cookies at home—you're not riding your bike right now. (Or if you are checking the forum while riding, please put your phone back in your jersey... :shock: ) So why not enjoy a few new additions to the TS Photos site? (Reminder: viewing pa...

Re: Bueller?

Hey Fozz! Circumstances have me dropping a truck off early at a friends’ place out near Elk Lake and riding from there. Sorry I can’t contribute to the group ride options this week...

Re: Silly Solstice Ride

Here's a raw, largely unedited three minute video of group pans from when the cross crew briefly joined the road train on Tuesday. (Because you know it's fun to pick yourself out of the line!) Still working on the off-road edit... https://photos.smugmug.com/Public-Photos/i-xqJ4vnM/0/2f9ed436/L/D317A...

Are you quite done, Greta? So ridiculous. Especially after all that ENSOpprobrium the other day.

Johnny Tyre must work on his Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill JT, Chill!!

In!

Is that a flagpole on my chin? Or just an infected zit?

Someone in our group is already prepared:

Re: Friday, December 20 - Earlier, Zippier, ENSO-ier, Royal Oak Golf Course

Thanks all for a fun (and very wet) rip this morning! No mechanicals or crashes, consistently fun pace, very few foot-downs, new terrain, an unexpected river, and we made Shoal Point for 7:25—five minutes early! Much gratitude to Claire for learning every turn perfectly and leading a separate group....

Re: Friday, December 20 - Earlier, Zippier, ENSO-ier, Royal Oak Golf Course

I count 15 signed up. Weather and those-who-don't-"forum" will adjust the numbers up and down a bit. But we're still likely to be too big for one crew (15 was way too much last Wednesday!) So, thanks for agreeing to lead a second group as needed, Claire! 8) Leaving very close to 6, avoiding foot-dow...

Wednesday, December 18 - Billie Eilish Gets to Drive Past 11

To celebrate Billie Eilish getting to drive her car past 11 p.m. tomorrow, is there going to be a FarmCross bicycle ride from the Church at 6?

But where will we go, and what will we see? It's up to you!

Post ideas here...

Re: Friday, December 20 - Earlier, Zippier, Royal Oak Golf Course

Looks like we might end up oversubscribed; but there's plenty of time for someone else to learn the route in advance. WTF. This is a silly. It penalizes those who don't have their schedules in order 6 weeks before the ride. Assuming I get my tire problem sorted, I will be leaving ALONE at 5:55 am f...
