Re: overheard on Saturdays march 7 ride

Re: Sunday Ride Report - Bookends!

Very nice commentary Marcel and thanks for the kind remarks about the ride. I think it's pretty unique in Victoria. I love the Sunday ride and I love helping people new to group riding and I love seeing newer riders progress. Thanks again!!!

Good ones Ian. Too bad so many cyclists don't have any common sense. Too bad so many drivers don't have any common sense too.

Re: Single File

Another section is going through Mt. Doug Parkway. There is a shoulder and a lane. Technically we are allowed to ride one in the shoulder and one in the lane. But what's the point??? It only annoys drivers and they take it out on us. I know the law says we cannot ride 2 abreast on the road but commo...

Fairly chill ride out to Sidney...except when it started raining I stopped right around the corner on Sayward after Mattick's to put my rain vest on. Th...
