back to school ride report

well, today's ride was lots o' fun. just over 20 people (only a handful on minis but lots of clettes) came out for a ride which started with a few songs from the Creaking Planks (thanks guys), and then went along the seawall to english bay for food and then to stanley park where we played kickball (good times). a tie game (13-13) made us all feel like winners when we rode out back along the seawall to Victory Square for a block party where we watched the Choir Practice. then off to Maitland/Lee's for some food and beers (more beers). the rain held off for the first few hours and didn't really start coming down until Victory Square so we got really lucky today.

hopefully everyone that came out today will also come out to the Chris Mass this friday... details at


Labour Day Back to School Special and B:C:Clettes Welcome Home Ride

Monday September 3, 2007 it's the Back to School Special and the Welcome Home B:C:Clettes Mini Bike Army Ride. It may be a long title but that's half the fun.

Mini Bike Army invites you to ride mini bikes (or whatever bike you have) on a holiday Monday afternoon ride. Meet at noon at the Science World Gazebo, ride at 12:30 to downtown, to the beaches, down Robson for some exposure, probably for food since mini bike riding takes a bit of energy... and perhaps some other special treat? Yes, it's probably the last opportunity for a mini bike Monday with nice weather. Don't hesitate, just ride.

Welcome home the B:C:Clettes from their westcoast tour with some bike love. Depending on how tired/busy the B:C:Clettes are, could they surprise us with a special performance? Doubtful, but if we entice them with beer, perhaps? We'll see who shows up I suppose.

Also, note on September 7th it's the Chris Mass. More details at for that ride.
