Sunday, Nov 10 - HARTLAND

Fairbucks 7:00am! Lochside trail pick-up 👌 With the rain today and dry weather in the forecast, Sunday looks like an optimal time to get muddy and finish in a nice warm cafe with food and hot coffee!! I'm thinking of a bit of a different route that eventually get's us into Thetis where we can hopefu...

Re: Friday, November 8 – All Hail The Beard

Oh man. Pressures on. I was gonna suggest the ride I did on Wednesday but it wasn't worth repeating...

It'll be a surprise I guess!

I'd love to join but have only etched out Friday mornings for weekday rides. Perhaps we can get an ambassadors ride on Friday... A certain Beach might be amenable...

Re: Sunday, Nov. 3 - Au-Tom Cruise

I would offer to join you too, but in addition to being shagged out, I'll be attending a bike lane improvement thing. Sigh....

Have a great ride!

Re: Saturday, Nov 2nd - Terra Nova: TSCX Strikes Back! (UPDATED DATE)

Have fun volunteering Claire. Terra Nova was a pretty tough technical slog. We didn't get lost but still had a bunch a hike-a-bike and mechanical issues to slow us down and throw a wrench in the plans. I look forward to some tamer routes...

Re: Saturday, Nov 2nd - Terra Nova: TSCX Strikes Back! (UPDATED DATE)

Hi Paul, I would budget 5-6 hrs approx., but be ready for the unexpected. We might encounter treefall and other conditions that slow us down. Some sections of the trail might require a hike but it shouldn't be too bad. I would recommend not having to catch a flight right afterwards. We depart 7:30am...

Re: Nov 3rd - Terra Nova: TSCX Strikes Back!

Darn, I should have realized this sooner but I have a conflict on Sunday morning ( Richardson Corridor Tour) . A big chunk of me wants to skip this and just ride but I think that would be a tad short-sighted. I can ride this Saturday, Nov 2nd instead or Sunday, Nov 10th. Any preferences? Saturday wo...

Re: Nov 3rd - Terra Nova: TSCX Strikes Back!

My bad Markus - you were right. Meeting at Fairbucks at 7:30am means we can't pick you up at 7:25am (duh! - Flux Capacitor is busted). See you at 7:50am-ish at the Switch Bridge (thank you Rolf for pointing that out!). http://giphygifs.s3.amazonaws.com/media/hAogM2NqtbBF6/giphy.gif L3 - Don't worry,...

Rob, 2.5hrs will be tight, but there are spots you can evaluate ride progress and tap out if need be.

Your usual active wear support should suffice JT.
