Friday cross ride!

Post by Claire » Thu Oct 17, 2019 10:58 am

Ok, I'm in! Who's leading this thing and where do I show up?

(p.s. I'm a bit of a know-it-all when it comes to local trail intel--thanks to a lifetime of running and cycling all over the city... so will gladly take on leadership duties at a future date, once I'm somewhat acquainted with the general comportment of the ride. For now, I happily follow and get acclimated to my new bike!)

As for "comportment":

Rule #1:

Rule #2: When encountering road kill, we go hazmat and get close,

Rule #3: take down all roadies.

Rob/Claire, its sounds like you need a Terra Nova adventure. Let's plan that over coffee sometime.

Gnarl is hard to get on a weekday morning, but Mystic/Haro is usually good for that (especially wet in the dark!). I'll post something soon.

So much for posting later. I cooked up a counter clockwise route through Oak Bay... But I'll take Moony and Padfoot's advice...

Oh, And Mr Maybe better get his priorities straight!
