2017/06/04 – Tugwell E, remap NE end, cross creek, up TW 40, Mt Muir, Down Butler, cross oildrum and back out Tugwell E (Clark)

Interesting ride, met some guys bushwhacking S from Tugwell Lake (should have gone W), took them back to Butler via Tugwell Main and TW40 (Mt Muir via Ranger Lake), split with them at the turnoff for Boulder Lake.

Matt, Tom, Bjoern up on Mt Muir

2017/05/28 – Mike Ryan’s Camping Weekend.

Mike Ryan organized a big gathering for a camping weekend. In theory there were 20 campsites, most with 2 tents, and some tents having more than one occupant. Lots of people, lots of bikes, lots of fun.

2017/05/22 – May long weekend (five day) ride with David Williams, Larry, Richard, Jaki, Chris

David invited a number of folks out for what turned out to be the first camping trip of the year for all (?) of us. I started from Victoria a day early, which led to a nice mix of solo (more technical) and group riding.

2017/04/30 – Big group, out to M-Line

I wanted to check out a connection leading off of K-line to the GPX track that I rode with Gerrit and Luke the day I met them. I figured it should be mostly main-line riding, and fairly easy. So I posted it as an open invite to the local dual sport group on FaceBook. Well… there wasn’t much of a response online, but there were twelve riders at the rendezvous (first lesson, request RSVPs so you have a rough head-count).

Twelve bikes at Duncan Rendezvous. Click for big.

2017/04/23 – Duncan area ride with Josh

I’m trying to “expand my turf” 🙂 And the first thing to learn in riding on Southern Vancouver Island is where the entrances/exits are (since the logging companies tend to block/gate everything).
