Friday Cross

We should ride tomorrow, I think. Especially after you eat all of that candy you're stealing from your kids. OBH at 06:00, thinking maybe Camosun-UVic-Haro-Gordon Point-MtDoug-BowPark-Summit-Topaz and spin down to Shoal Point. Anyone?

Friday Cross

Two options:

North West: Cedar Hill - Lochside - Royal Oak - Colquitz, coffee at Shoal Point

North East: Oak Bay - UVic - Ten Mile - Haro - UVic, coffee at Pure Vanilla

Pick one by show of hands in the parking lot, or maybe do both pending turnout?

Aiming for 75-90 minutes either way. Who's in?

Re: Bike Policy for CRD Parks

Over 100 letters received in favour of the policy, 35 speakers scheduled for the meeting today and almost 100 people in attendance to show their support for the motion. It was very inspiring to see so many take time out of their day to bolster the work SIMBS and others have done. Thanks to everyone ...

Re: Traveling with a carbon frame bike

I always use that soft foam used for insulating plumbing and wrap it around all the different tubes to protect as much as possible. Probably the most important thing is to take the derailleur off the frame so it or the hanger doesn't get bent. But then, don't have a few drinks at your destination an...

I'm gonna head out for a rip tomorrow. I would like to keep it brisk and steady, thinking Oak Bay-Willows-Uplands-UVic-Haro-Ten Mile-Uvic ending at kit pick-up at Pure Vanilla no later than 7:30. Would love to have company...

Re: Tuesday, October 8 - WTF !?$#@

I would say that I would love to join you, but that doesn't sound like any fun at all JT. Mandy and I are planning to head out from the school at 6 if anyone wants to do a trail ride.

Re: Olympic Discovery Trail - September 28-29

Dudettes and Dudes - hate to say it but we are out. The twelve year old's birthday party had to be rescheduled so it takes priority. If anyone wants to take over the reservation I have for an A frame with two doubles ($193.38 US), please let me know today, if possible.
