Re: Friday, June 7 - (Pearl) Jam to UVic

That bests me spotting Mike Gillis in Demitasse the other day. See you Friday, 6:00am @ OBH.

Re: Sunday, June 30 MAGA Cross Ride

Well, this is better than crickets. I was beginning to think everyone R U N N O F T'd.

I also have permission to go July 7th if that works better for folks. Ideally we would have a posse greater than three for this adventure. Please post if that works for you.

Re: Sunday, June 2 Willis Pt Slogfest

Rolf, I hope that A, they talked you of that, or B you did it and have a hell of a story to tell.

Greg, you were right about the Ironman. A few times I waited for the wall of carbon to pass. At one time I cycled with some of them and had photos taken of me. 😂

Re: Sunday, June 2 Willis Pt Slogfest

Looks like the collisions should be minimal, since the Ironman starts at 10:00am. But I'll shove off at 6:30am as this is a longer ride too. Post if you wanna come!

Re: Sunday, June 2 Willis Pt Slogfest

Thanks for the tip Greg. I have a "finely crafted" ride planned:

I'll check it against the Ironman course (I had no idea!!)

Sunday, June 2 Willis Pt Slogfest

After all this fun technical single track I plan on tracking Willis Pt and heading all the way down Mckenzie Bight trail just to come back up. I'll post a more detailed ride plan soon if anyone wants to suffer with me. Alternative plans welcome.

Friday, May 31 - Tolmie, Haro, Mystic Ditty

Rolf and I did this little ditty last week but deviated from a bunch of it in order to explore 10 mile point (fun!). So it warrants another crack!

Other suggestions welcome!

Leaving Oak Bay High at 6:00am. Any takers?

Re: Wednesday May 29 Farm Cross

Wednesday mornings are close to impossible for me to get out.

I like the route though. I'll be out Friday and would be up for take 2.

Re: Sundy May 26 Cross Ride

Sounds good Rolf. Nothing better than an invigorating ride in the woods to make you feel right as rain.

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.

Re: Friday, May 24 - Cross Ride

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