Mid-Week Motivator

We'll decide where to go when we meet. This will be held every Wednesday as long as there is any interest and the weather isn't too horrible. I'll send out an email by 10 am of the ride day if there is any change of plans. Count on at least 2 hours, perhaps as many as 4 or 5 in the summer, again depending on the weather and how we feel.

Standard Stuff - PLEASE VISIT THE LINKS!

CHANGE TO PROCEDURES! Victoria Cycling Adventures Club (VCAC) has been created as an umbrella society for this meetup group in order that we be able to provide you with ride insurance. You are covered by this insurance on your first ride with us, but for subsequent rides, you must join the VCAC. The annual fee is $5, payable at your next ride. Visit the new VCAC website to find out all about it and to become a member: VCAC.net.

JOINING THE VCAC IS DONE ONLINE ONLY. CLICK TO JOIN THE VCAC.

In case of bad weather, we will reschedule this ride and substitute an Embrace The Rain Ride in its place. Hey - we live in a rain forest, its gonna rain! Let's learn to enjoy it. This will be a short ride in town with a stop to warm up and dry out.

    Great as always! Saw a redwing blackbird, a black rabbit, went down some trails I had never seen and looked at bogs, bottoms and flats with some friendly people! Thanks Simon!

    There is a saying that goes along the lines of: a camel is a horse designed by a committee. There are some rare times when a committee can design a thing of beauuuty. Today's ride was a beauuuty!!! We got to check out the new Craigflower Bridge, rode Prospect Lake Rd. from Burnside West to West Saanich and the "piece de resistance" so to speak was a climb up to the Dominion Observatory. A sincere thanks to Brent for this suggestion. The view from the top was worth the climb. The descent was reminiscent of the Stelvio from the Giro d'Italia!

    Thanks Sam - and everyone - for the great ride today. I finally made it up to the observatory after living in Victoria since 1991! Magnificent view...

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
