Muir West / Kirby Creek -> Tieulie Place 2016/03/19

This was a solo ride, and basically came out great. If you’re following in my footsteps, this is NOT a beginner ride. There is nothing very difficult in it, but it is more difficult than “graded mainline”.

Tugwell E with Bob Jeffs – 2016/03/17

A fairly leisurely ride with Bob through the Tugwell E loop. Meant as an introduction to off-road riding (beyond graded main-lines).

East Muir / Mt Muir – 2016/03/05

Went out for a solo ride. Hadn’t been sure about the weather, or the bike, so didn’t want to make concrete plans.

Cambell River area (and ride back). 2016/02/23

So, one of the great things about going up to buy those panniers from David Williams was getting to meet, talk to, and ride with David Williams :). His posts and pictures on help encourage me get out and “adventure”.

Anderson / Tugwell W. 2016/02/21

Went back to the Tugwell area today. Got there a little after 11am and left about 6 hours later… exhausted. I rode a lot of non-trivial road and trails. Found a number of loops, and the last “road” I explored had lots of trails off of it, but I simply ran out of time.

Map updated.

W Sooke to Shawnigan (loop)… un-planned. 2016/02/08

A Shawnigan loop was definitely NOT the plan. It was on my “TO DO” list, but not the plan. (With Tony and Wyatt.)

Butler again (2016/02/02)

Went out solo on Tuesday. Was supposed to go back out to Tugwell E, but wanted to see if Butler was open. It was, so I went up it to see if the snow had disappeared, and it certainly was gone between the 6 and 8km markers where I got stopped last time. So I kept going…

Tugwell E with Tony. 2016/01/31

A good (wet) ride with company. That might be the best short description of today’s ride.
