Sorry to disappoint Steve, but rather than another Metchosin Hillfest, I have decided to join the OBB ride tomorrow morning at 9. I have a bunch of work tonight so a 6am Sufferfest isn't too appealing, and Sunday looks rainy so I'm going to go into lemming mode and join the masses to Lands End and back. If you don't do the Sufferfest, join us at 9! Andrew

I rarely miss wheelers Saturday but I like the idea of doing some hills. Especially after getting dropped on ash today.

See you there.

AJ, I'll also be on the OBB 9:00am ride in the morning, and like you I'm up to my neck in work tonight. See you on the ride tomorrow.

Note to Rob: Unless I'm mistaken, Steve, Andy, and Damian ( welcome! ) are intending to do the Tripleshot Sufferfest, which is basically the OBB ride starting at 6:00. So there are no hills to speak of ..... unless you count Panorama! ;)

Andrew is correct about the sufferfest ride (similar route as OBB ride). But will be adding a trip up the observatory this time. Hope to see you there

I have to be back in town by 9:30-45am so cannot add on the extra km this wkd. Still looking for 100km, Usual route, observatory, time permitting. A2 pace. See you out there.

Ryley Rohan and I will be doing a big hill ride on Saturday morning too (100k/2000m+ elevation). Maybe we could roll out together.

Sounds like a good idea Stephan. Are you thinking of meeting us at cook st. 6am, or link up along the way? Let me know. 250-650-7373. Or post here. Dave, Andy you two ok with the hills route, or do you want to stick with the usual..? My ride window is 6am-9:45am.
