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.

I'm in too. Meet-up at Oak Bay High? Do you think we can squeeze in some Haro woods?

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

Eddy Grant and I discussed it and he strongly recommends we Rock Down to Electric Avenue . After which, we can take it higher...

I've already cleared Sunday morning for a ride. I'll post a ride idea to the correct thread this afternoon.

Re: Saturday, May 4 - Great Trail Adventure 2019!

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...

Re: Friday, April 26 - Hidden Paths

Since I can't go on this Sunday's ride, I'll endeavour to drag my butt out of bed at this ungodly hour. I give myself a 50% chance of making it.

What time and where?

Re: Sunday, April 21st Cross Ride - EASTER BRUNCH EDITION

Yes, the cycling philosopher seems a little off kilter. Nothing a little cram won't sort out.

P.S. the ride was fantastic. Thanks for the Hartland tour!

Most excellent Louise! I've put together a neat little route to get to the Hartland Parking Lot: https://www.strava.com/routes/18280964 (Plotting routes is a strangely addictive activity- and now I really want a Garmin for turn-by-turn navigation assist) Once there, we can use your know-how and a Tr...

Re: Sunday, April 21st Cross Ride

I'm clear for either morning or afternoon as we are doing our egg hunt on Saturday now.

L3, I would budget about 3-4 hours for the ride depending on pace. Does a 1:00pm start work for you?

Sunday, April 21st Cross Ride - EASTER BRUNCH EDITION

Well, it's the end of the week so that means I'm getting really excited about a Cross Ride AND the weather forecast looks good for Sunday!! I'd like to take a another crack at Hartland if there are any takers, Last week went fairly well but we missed the Thetis connection. If we keep along the West ...
