Team rides are under way! We have decided on Sunday mornings at 9am at Our Town (Kingsway and Broadway) as a meet place. Anyone that wants to be involved in the "where the hell are we gonna go!?" discussion be there at 9. If you don't care, sleep in, get lost on the way, or are naturally fashionably late (like me), be there by 9:30 to roll out. Captain Shane has veto power on all stupid route suggestions, but also reserves the right to call a bluff and agree to lead the crew to Mount Baker and back by way of Kamloops if he so desires, so don't test him! Rides will hover between 60 and 120 km, with the first handful taking place in sunny Richmond, until the frost lifts. These are no-drop rides, unless your drive train has mice in it or your fenders are perforated, in which case you'll be asked to wear Bill Yearwoods home made TT helmet and asked to ride .5 km's behind us!
In an effort to keep the weekly discussion surrounding each weeks ride out of everyone's email in boxes it has been suggested we use the comments feature of this blog entry to discuss routing and themes. Feel like doing a run to Baker? Climbing all three North Shore Mountains? Field trip to the Richmond oval? Fixed gear valley run? Call it here. I also intend to update the blog on a "frequent basis", so bookmark this damn thing! See you on Sunday!
