FYI - MEC 50 & 100 Ride

  • May 11, 2014 · 8:30 AM

This is not a VCAC ride, it's just an FYI of another event in the city that might be of interest to folks looking for longer ride opportunities.

MEC is hosting 50 & 100km Victoria rides.  The 100km is a nice route and I'm looking forward to trying it with my new-to-me road bike.  The registration fee is $35 and here is the link for more information.

    Now that was a picturesque ride. I felt challenged and when it was over I really felt good. Mainly cuz my are was off that seat ;-)

    It was a BEAUTIFUL day for a ride, I hope everyone had fun!!! My big learning for the day was "technology makes a difference". I was over 30 minutes faster with a lighter bike with more gears on this 100 vs one on my old bike a month ago. Now my new-to-me bike is nothing special but wow did it make a difference. The even bigger news was HOLY COW what a difference a seat can make. First pain free long distance ride ever! Cudos to the boys at Russ Hayes who measure ma butt and recommended a seat. I could not believe I was not sore at the end of the ride. Congrats to Tyler on his first 100. Congrats to Catherine on her 100, oppps no it was only a 50, weenie :-) (this is a dig based on a conversation earlier today) Eldon cruised around a 50 and Roy was just pulling in from his 100 looking like he'd done some work as Tyler and I were driving out so we didn't get to speak. Sorry I didn't manage to connect with Brent or Reagan, there were a lot of folks there.

      I was a weenie too. Although I took a scenic route because I was distracted by such a neat Mother's day sign. If Mama's not happy no-one's happy. So I road 9.4 km longer on West Saanich . . .thankfully the sweep VW was casing up as I was purchasing gummi bears and drove me back to where I was supposed to be. It was a beautiful day. Thank-you so much for posting this.

    Sorry to back out. This looked like a fun challenge but I got too much sun today and have a heck of a headache. Going to try to sleep in tomorrow. Enjoy the ride everyone.

      It is at the cider barn. I've worked out with Ian a ride. Thanks for the offer though!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
