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...

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

Okay, let's stay the course for Bear Mountain. Looks like we are on intermediate, single track trails and as far as I can tell only the Bike Park is charged for and only open from 11:00am. Let's be stealthy and perhaps have some cash just in case. I'm super looking forward to Electric Avenue now (If...

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

Thanks for the tips Rolf! Strava Route Builder and Trail Forks made most of the Bear Mountain stuff look like trails. I'll re-examine and revise. Sounds like some better route planning in Thetis is warranted too. More to come.

Yes, I think coffee around 10:30 seems reasonable.

Have a damn good ride folks! Weather looks perfect.

I'm totally not jealous and won't be spending my afternoon in a shopping mall at a school fundraiser.

Re: Friday, April 26 - Hidden Paths

I totally buy into walkable cities with lots of greenways and access routes! It would be so nice to have these reopened.

Re: Friday, April 26 - Hidden Paths

Was it ever open? When I bought my place I was surprised that the homeowners did all maintenance on the path along my house. If those paths never had neighbour support to keep them open and the city ignored them, who's fault is it? Building a fence over the path is a bit cheeky and might have been d...
