  1. Power move, for sure. He just yelled in passing and didn't stop to talk. I have plenty of bike buddies, so maybe I'll try an actual test to compare. Also, 'screw that guy' was my first reaction, but I'm trying to give the benefit of the doubt.
  2. Riding on the Lochside trail last night I had a cyclist complain about how bright my v10f's headlight was for oncoming traffic. I've never really seen another approaching EUC in the dark myself so I don't know what it's like. At first I assumed that it would be like a bike light, but now I'm not so sure. It's low to the ground and pointed somewhat upward, so the guy may have had a good point. I may try using a flashlight only for dark trails with oncoming bike traffic and save the EUC headlight for roads. Any thoughts?
  3. I was out on the goose Friday but not today, so not me.
  4. I like it as a discipline, I hadn't thought of it that way!
  5. @rywokast is the man, but fwiw I'm a 6 month rider and I went with the 'smallest of the big', a v10f. There are plenty of criticisms of it but I'm happy with mine. I wanted something that could do 50 real km on a charge. I'm thinking of treating myself to a bigger wheel in the new year.
  6. I don't have the confidence to ride with hands in pockets though when it's really cold I'll put my hands behind my back to keep them warm.
  7. Awesome news. I was out riding twice today, once on Lochside trail and later at Panama flats. Hope to see you out there some time. I'm not nearly as experienced as @rywokast but if you're looking for pointers or a practice buddy I'd be happy to get together.
  8. I have a helmet mirror and you're right, it's kind of small and does vibrate a little but is still OK for me. My struggle is remembering to check it, but I wouldn't ride without it now.
  9. Dunno, I'd be OK with the same helmet requirements as a bicycle. Not something that the police would waste time enforcing.
  10. Another article on the same subject. Looks like Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps already has a proposal ready to go for us, could be in place by the end of the year: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/b-c-government-looks-to-carve-out-rules-for-e-scooters-1.5314198
  11. I don't want to give the wrong impression, but it's pretty much the only time I wipe out anymore.
  12. I was having breakfast at John's Place on Pandora this morning when somebody rode past on a white wheel. Anybody?
  13. Buddies of mine introduced me to the Fin and Pearl at uptown, good for a quick mid-ride beer on the way home on a Friday.
  14. During the summer I was commuting four days a week from Tillicum up to Keating by goose+lochside. Now that school's back in I have to drive my wife to work so I'm lucky to get out once a week on the weekend.
