Tickets have been bought and will be distributed by BARTON in the morning. Arriving at the terminal at 5:45 should be about right.

There will be a light hot "brunch" served at the top parking lot so don't be afraid to bring a small appetite as well as big legs.

Looks like it was a fun time climbing a mile up a foreign mountain today.

Just a reminder that I've set up a gallery for Club members to share photos (PM me for the viewing/access password): https://tripleshotcyclingphotos.smugmug ... -August-12

Thanks to those who have already chucked a few up there!

If you're on wifi or safely back on your Canadian cell data network and reading this on your phone, here's a link directly to the upload page—from which it's a cinch to dump the photos right off your phone: https://tripleshotcyclingphotos.smugmug ... geAugust12

You can also always email me shots for sharing, if that’s easier: Tripleshot.cycling.photos@gmail.com.

27 members up and down Hurricane . A+ to B- riders. No mechanicals, flats ...or clear sunshine.
We did have fog, hot dogs, chocolate milk, good snacks and alot of club camaraderie.

Thanks to Marcus and Nancy for van, food and moral support. Barton for getting tickets and for just being Barton. And to our V.P. and Acting President... Fossy for pre organisation and. announcments.

Huge thanks to the organizers and support crew, and of course the riders. I look forward to doing this on a clear day sometime.

The dream support team once again wowed and spoiled our group today with everything from water to chips and hotdogs (which were actually european wieners). Everyone certainly appreciated being able to haul up their warm clothes for the chilly, foggy and slightly wet descent. Thanks to the collective group (Neil, Barton et al.) for coordinating things behind the scene to make for a fantastic day on the bike. Also great work to the club riders who pushed themselves all the way to the top.

Edit: forgot to mention that Marcus and Nancy volunteered on their wedding anniversary (29th!). Hard to imagine a more dedicated couple to support our silly adventures.

It was a great day! It was awesome to see so many people doing this climb (or any climb like it) for their first time. Congratulations to everyone!

And thank you sooooo much to Marcus and Nancy for taking care of us and cheering for us as we slowly ascended the mountain.

We sure have a fantastic club. :)

Hey, sorry it took so long, but here is the video of Garth and I's speedy descent. 32km's in 38 minutes...Next time more participants in the downhill portion would be fun...
