I have a feeling that only you, Rolf and I appreciate and enjoy the Forum these days :( :( I will try to make i...

Re: Free items

Hi Polly, this is very generous of you. If club members are not interested in the locks I can promise to take and distribute the locks at the next Tripleshot Bike Repair Session at Our Place on February 8.

Re: Cycling BC License Prices

Dear all, I think that this is a very important discussion. While the cost is important, more important in my mind is the original question: what do members and the club get for this payment? In an earlier life, I requested and received a copy of the CBC insurance policy but I was instructed not to ...

The lights are on a timed sequence, they are NOT ON A SENSOR. This means you will have to WAIT till the light turns green. The sequence is 20 seconds green lig...

Re: Should the Tripleshot forum be taken private?

Thank you Management for continuing to think constructively about efficient communication among members. My vote is to keep the forum as is. I don't think the quality of our communication will improve by requiring registration to "read." Rather, I think there is some evidence to show that ...

Thank you for posting these Mike. I am a little embarrassed to admit how exciting it is to ride with you and your group in my mind. My heart rate goes up and I get exhausted sitting on the couch. Good idea to filter out all the chatting too!
