Sunday Earlier Slower Longer!

Post by barton bourassa » Fri Jan 04, 2019 8:40 pm

A new thread for a new year. C pace kind of. Nice and steady, keeping things moving.

Leaving Starbucks at Uptown at 7.

The route for Jan 6: https://www.strava.com/routes/16669801

Not much more distance than last week but more climbing for sure!

The weather for tomorrow morning is looking pretty shitty right now. So unless it changes significantly overnight, I don't think I'll be out.

I know John! The forecast had me concerned also and it was not looking good when I went to the coffee shop nor when Penny and I left the coffee shop shortly after 7. But! the weather turned for the better. Very little rain and only light winds. With all of the elevation it was a challenging ride! Sure glad I had company!

Not sure if I'll be around next week. May be out of town so someone ele will have to post a route!

The weather looks cool but dry for tomorrow morning. Anyone up for a 85-90km counter-clockwise version of the traditional peninsula loop, leaving Uptown Bucky's at 7:00am? C+ pace, as per usual.

As Barton is away this weekend, we will avoid hills wherever possible. :wink:

Careful on Wallace (ice) and up the Peninsula. Lands End was very cold this morning, though--as far as we could tell--not icy. Tomorrow might be different given the 6 degree temperature drop in the Victoria forecast compared with this morning.
