Thanksgiving Sunday ride on a Monday?

Post by rduncan » Mon Oct 07, 2019 8:10 pm

Hey crossers and single track lovers.

I have family coming to town next weekend for thanksgiving and since they are running the good life race on Sunday, we want to to a cross ride on Monday morning. Same gig as Sunday, just on Monday. Anyone else up for that? My navigation is still beginner level so I’m hoping some of the usual crew also wants to have some fun on the holiday morning.


If its just the 3 of us that’s fine but I’d love some route suggestions. Rolf, Ron, JT?
I was thinking great trail just for ease of navigation and to get a nice ride in but would love to have a better option with more speedy downhills.

Rob: with all due respect to the awesomeness that is COTR, I assume your family aren’t here to hit Nanaimo and enjoy “a large grass area with tight turns ... a long stair run up and two sand sections” EVEN IF they get to ride it 6-9 times in a row!

I’m on Quadra Island this weekend, so can’t do any tour-guiding. But I’m guessing Ron will be out; and his trail-divining rod is damn strong!

If all else fails, there are plenty of ideas on my plot-a-route page. Just pick one and set aside a half hour the night before to visualize the map, check Google Streetview when necessary/available, and memorize turns. It’s easy!

Rob, it looks pretty flexible so far. I am thinking 1:00pm at this point.

Hi Rob, I also have family here on the weekend, and for this reason need to get my ride in on Sunday morning. If you fail to connect with Ron, then I'd suggest Rolf's plot-a-route ride titled "Thetis CX lap". It's reasonably straightforward to navigate, and has some nice downhills.

Ron,

We're going to do a morning ride afterall. I'll see you next week for the usual cross shenanigans.
