Re: Sundy May 26 Cross Ride

Looks like we are down to just me now (Mike has no bike). I'll skip waiting at Fairbucks or switch bridge unless someone posts.

Happy Sunday!

Re: Sundy May 26 Cross Ride

I think Mike and I have agreed to a 7:00am start from Fairbucks with a likely 7:20 pickup at the switch bridge (I believe Mark was referring to his Saturday ride). Weather forecast is amazing: dry with freash mud!!

Bring your mud guards.

Re: Sundy May 26 Cross Ride

Mike, do you have the ability to start a little earlier? It's a 50km ride and given the technical terrain and depending on group size we might want to budget 3.5 hours. Starting at 7:00 should help us wrap up for a 10:30 coffee or even breakfast...

Re: Sundy May 26 Cross Ride

You betcha. Unless someone has a specific ride in mind, I'm game for a tweaked version of the Canada Cup ride I never got to do:

I've updated the Strava Route. Again nothing fancy, but we can improvise.

Crap, I'm doing this while allegedly paying attention to a band performance. Will fix ASAP.

Friday, May 24 - Cross Ride

6:00am at Oak Bay High. I have an easier back of the pocket ride I've been meaning to try but I'm open to other more ambitious rides:

Re: Monday, May 20th Cross Ride - Victoria Day Edition

Not that I have heard. Lots of people away for the long weekend I think.

Thanks for understanding. I try to be more reliable than this.

Re: Monday, May 20th Cross Ride - Victoria Day Edition

I'm so sorry Mark, but I will not be able to make the ride. There's been a mix-up with my son's soccer tournament and I have to stay another night in Vancouver 😩

Re: Monday, May 20th Cross Ride - Victoria Day Edition

The queen requested it as close to 7:30am at Fairbucks as possible but will bump up earlier depending on participant needs :D

Re: Monday, May 20th Cross Ride - Victoria Day Edition

Thanks for the suggestions, Rolf! I've carved out a new route with the primary goal of getting into Bear Mountain without grinding excessive tarmac to get there. Routing up through Highlands Rd and connecting to the Scafe Hill Loop Trail to get to Electric Avenue (or Electric Light - whim will decid...

Monday, May 20th Cross Ride - Victoria Day Edition

Queen Victoria was a bonnie lass and to celebrate her birth it seems only fitting to cover ourselves in mud https://media.giphy.com/media/ApQamXuFa9hHq/giphy.gif and make baristas mop their floors. https://img.buzzfeed.com/buzzfeed-static/static/2015-04/5/20/enhanced/webdr11/anigif_enhanced-5255-142...

Re: Mothers Day Cross Ride- Fun in the Forest!

Thanks for the fantastic ride today folks. Lessons learned: 1) Skip Trillium and the silly hike-a-bike to Bellamy (although the descent to Thetis North was nice) 2) Electric Avenue is a hoot! 3) Millhouse is super fun I'll rework the route so we can hit the good stuff sooner and still have time for ...

Re: Mothers Day Cross Ride- Fun in the Forest!

I reworked the route and reversed the flow so we go through Thetis first, then the way Old Man Warburton recommend on Electric Avenue and into Bear Mountain. Something funky happened to the way points so ignore the lines that don't make sense (Strava really does mean BETA for the Route Planner) :D 7...
