Re: March 4th - Farm Cross

Rolf's a tough son of a bit*h. After we stapled him up, he road home, bathed, and was at work by 9 am.

Re: March 4th - Farm Cross

Been working too much, Ron. Hope to make it out, but can't commit... With Rolf sleeping in the rest of us were able to gossip about him on this morning's ride. Including on Hannibal Hill (as Alan calls it) where Rolf scratched his knee a couple of years ago. How can we forget this lovely image: htt...

However it was decidedly lacking in off-colour jokes.
Yes, short on off-colour jokes, Rob, but that sassy flip* of your babushka certainly drew Rolf's attention.

Don't forget Ronald!
No slight on Ron, he's the man - with maps, on the trails, at coffee, and of course when it comes to man scents ..

Friday, February 28: Please read on ...

Would someone please present a route idea for tomorrow, or at least a poem? And please make it good because I've been stuck in science nerdsville for the past month and need a good brain enema.

Re: Thurs TTT

The construction is right outside the building that I (and John D.) work in. I recommend staying away tomorrow and probably many Thursdays to come.

Re: March 14 - Big Terra Nova Clockwise Loop

Jonny tyre if all it takes is cinnamon to get you to join us and take a break from saving the planet then consider it done. I'll even mix a new batch of patchouli for your riding pleasure... Oh Ronny and Robby, you sure know how to get a gal aroused. http://media.giphy.com/media/e39tpB7xOf6h2/giphy...

Re: Fairfield Starbucks

For the reasons that Rob and Rolf outline, I agree that F&F Starbucks works better than the Marina. Sad to give up on the "sublime”, Louise, but happy that F&F Starbucks will still give you a break on getting to the start from GH.

Re: Fairfield Starbucks

The challenge with the marina is that the gravel folks regularly head the other way so it would be a big detour to start at the marina... Demitasse is pretty spot on. Rob, your point but about gravel rides is well taken, however the area around Demitasse is smaller than you think. And, as an Oak Ba...

Re: Fairfield Starbucks

I agree with Alan on all but his last point. The problem with Moka House is that it doesn’t offer space enough for cyclists to congregate - for that we really need a parking lot. My suggestion is the coffee shop at the Marina. The coffee shop opens at 7:00 am, has plenty of space, and outside there ...
