Ride 090820

Happy Birthday Megan, good dad goes for a ride on his daughters birthday (has his priorities straight) actually shed rather go out with her friends.
Stuart,Steve, Colin, Pikey and myself Rode cypress today we did the powerlines down to Shore Play I haven't rode this trail before it was very nice lots of rock and loose dirt + steeps need to hit this one a few more times before it will flow. Good to get out for a ride it had been 2 weeks, far too long.

This shot is from the power lines looking off to Vancouver Island across Georgia Straight

Heat Wave Thursday eve Ride 090730

Turns out that Thursday broke the previous days record at the airport it was 34 Celsius on Wednesday, Thursday was 34.4 this is the hottest day ever recorded in Vancouver. We did are Thursday ride all my pics didn't turn out, we had a great ride, lots of riders on the trails. If this weather keeps up we might be facing a trail closure keep our fingers crossed.

Steve McCabe and I rode with Tony from Philadelphia He tagged along on Thurs. and on Friday morning we did a lap on G out of Blair Range I forgot my camera must have been the heat.
