Mostly nonsense. Also riding bicycles inappropriate for off road terrain, off road; GIFs

Friday, October 12 - Taper ride?

Post by Ann » Thu Oct 11, 2018 12:04 pm

Is anyone interested in another "relaxed social ride through the neighbourhood ending for coffee and treats at Shoal Point" tomorrow? I need to test my tire setup for the CrossFondo and I don't want to get injured or lost, both of which seem to be the themes of this week. :(

We can meet at 6 a.m. at OBH parking lot.

I’m down if it’s mellow and Jonny tire or rolling Rolf are there to be navigators since I get hopelessly lost on those routes.

I'm pretty sure Rolling Rolf will be absent tomorrow. I'm not sure about Johnny Tyre. However, I know a lot of the neighbourhood trails and can refresh my memory from Strava tonight.

I'm in. Between Ann and I I'm sure we'll get to where we need to go.

If Alan comes out he can tell us a "very nice story about a Dork he knows from Saskatchewan who was out cross riding on Tuesday and was taken down by a big piece of Bull Kelp". Swear to God, it jumped about 200 meters from the shoreline to right in front of my wheel - 10 feet long, 6 inches in diameter, fangs gnashing. We'll avoid that area, K?

Yes, 6 am OBH.

This thread needs a giphy. This is the best I could come up with under pressure:

I too am in, and spent just a little time looking for the right gif.
It's hard enough keeping up to Rolf and John on the bike, also competing with them and the Uber-Giffer Greg?

I often just give up....

Sorry, SteelBuns. But you sound super foreign and weird. I like that and find it interesting. But we only ride with people wot speak English good. (At least, that’s what Johnny Tyre told me.)

I will be there for a taper ride in the morning. The sad thing is that I am tapering down from zero.

Thanks for the visit this morning, guys. I'm glad Alan wiped out. :twisted:

It's always good to wake up feeling like Clint!

This was us, discussing whether to circumnavigate Rolf's front yard...

It's possible we spooked Rolf's cat.

Clint Eastwood! Don't flatter yourself, Rolf. This is how the rest of us saw it,

Are we talking about the same Rolf? He’s usually such a helpful, polite lad...
