Sunday, March 8 - Blacktail, Hazlitt, Corry Redux

Post by Rolf »

I'm going to try this route tomorrow.

It's a variation on this ride from last November which was super rainy and early, but hit some interesting new terrain, including the fun, flowy Hazlitt Creek Park trail. I'd expect our pace and time (3:20) to be similar—ie. not slow, but all-abilities-friendly.*

Cookbucks at 7:30, caesars and chai lattes by 11:00?

*May nonetheless disrupt coiffured hair-dos.

If the -1C forecast comes true, I may ride later with Jill et al. - so don't wait for me, or ride by and piss on my bushes.

Piss on your bushes?

No, never, immature, juvenile, childish, amateur...

Darn, I missed this ride last time too but I'm on dad driving duty in the morning. I will go on a 10:45ish ride instead; solo or with company if there are any takers (JT, TXT me if you get stood up by Jill again). Have fun!

Figbug says it’s only minus on the far side of Thetis, Johnny; and the sun will be coming up when we get over there...

Or is it the hair thing?

Rolf, the ultrastrong magnetic that is hanging with you, Alan, Ron and the others, was weaker this morning than was the drive to go into the office and work through an interesting science/math puzzle. And, it's freaking cold and my hair is tragic this a.m.

Love and kisses,

I'll play second fiddle to a science/math puzzle any day! Glad you came for coffee.

What a nutty ride. When it flowed, it was fiiine. I look forward to returning to Hazlitt Creek—Alan's roots notwithstanding.

But you know it's late winter when bikes break down that much (and there are that many new pointy rocks exposed after the waters recede!) I came out from coffee to a slow-leak, making it 5 for 5 riders, and a total of 11 mechanicals. :shock:
