2018/03/20 – back out Jacob Creek way with Bob Jeffs

Bob wanted to get out for a ride, and the forecast looks to get worse for the rest of the week, and I have a new bike I’d like to ride, and there was a new track I wanted to explore, etc.

2018/03/11 – Muir again with some new friends, new track by Jacob Creek.

After running into snow in a couple places with Daya yesterday, it seemed fairly clear that the only longish straight line ride in the Muir area would be west along the power-lines toward Fishboat Bay. Rob H and some of his friends (Trevor, Roger, Shawn (sp?)) had setup a ride for today, and invited me.

2018/03/10 2-UP with Daya, Muir

Weather forecast was great, bike was together, got up early and got breakfast out of the way … but none of the usual culprits were making noises about riding. Looked after some odds and ends, and when she finally appeared, I asked the youngest if she wanted to go for a ride…

2018/03/03 – West Sooke with Geoff (lotsa logging :( )

Geoff wanted to get out for a “trail ride”, wasn’t an ideal day for me, but it was sunny and I skipped last weekend due to a newly cracked rib.

2018/02/20 – Ride to Chemainus and back.

Rode up to Chemainus to pick up some “soft bag racks”… for a DR650, hoping they would make a good starting point for DRZ racks. I’m not sure that idea is going to work, the plastics on the DRZ seem to swell out more… but the length is darn close… all mind games until I actually get a reasonable welder.

2018/02/15 – Cowichan Area ride with Daniel

In theory this was a ride to get some drone footage. More pavement than most of my rides.

2018/02/10 – Hard ride through Oliphant area, with James and Mike

Mike set the meeting for 9am. I thought it was early, but we’d have run out of daylight if we had started much later. A solid day of technical riding.

2018/02/04 – Longish ride up to Tugwell Lake, then Alligator Lake, with Gerry, Luke, Scott.

Honestly, we had no business taking Gerry’s F800GS up to Tugwell. I knew it would be hard, but I have a hard time figuring out what Gerry can and can not do on that bike. (I’m not sure he can either. :)  Exited Tugwell Lake to Butler (hard), up Butler to East Main, down that to the Alligator Lake turn off where we split with Gerry (due to accumulated injuries). Luke, Scott and I up to the Lake… where we stopped to wait out some of the rain in the cabin. Then basically bee-lined it to the start of Muir Main. Muir gate bypass seems to be functioning normally.
