Remembrance Day Ride - GG/RR/LL/GG

Post by JTyre » Sat Nov 10, 2018 8:36 am

Any interest in repeating this highly memorable ride from 11 months ago: https://www.strava.com/activities/1309650764?

Leaving from Fairbucks at 7:35 am would put us at the legislature cenotaph around 10:30 am to pay our respects, followed by coffee and usual bullshit.

Notes:
1. This would be an uno amigo ride. Santiago and Diego claim to have better things to do.
2. Conditions will be cold and dry with manageable terrain for those nursing shoulder or hip injuries.
3. Pickups at the Switch Bridge around 7:55 am.
4. To help jog your memory consider this archival footage: https://vimeo.com/246893287.

Gee, those people look like they’re having a lot of fun. And they look so young.

I’ll miss y’all tomorrow, but I’m thinking of a fun ride on stat Monday if anyone’s keen…

I will be there tomorrow, although i will have to leave after Royal Roads. Somehow cycling kit isn't good enough for a Remembrance day ceremony.

I'll be there monday as well

Just to clarify, JT's ride is TMRW - Sunday? For some reason I assumed it was Monday, maybe b/c the actual stat holiday is on Monday.

Well, you know these imprecise climate scientists, throwing around completely unmeasurable words like “warm” and “hot” and “catastrophic”—just so they can foment conspiracy theories and indulge in self-importance.

JT’s talking Remembrance Day, Sunday, November 11.

Because it's your birthday, Rolf, and because you've seemingly forgotten that lawyer jokes enjoy their own wikipedia entry, I'm working hard not to return the insult,
