TNR 2018-2

Tuesday Night Ride

January 9, 2018

6:15 pm Start Time

Leaving from DQ on Caribou St W between 4th and 5th Avenue.

The nice thing about TNR in the winter months is that it is never the same ride twice.

The bad thing about TNR in the winter months is that it is never the same ride twice.

Tonight’s ride may feature rain. Yes, that’s right, rain in January in Moose Jaw.

Winter rain is basically kryptonite to cyclists. It will freeze on your clothes and make you cold.

It will freeze on your bike and make things like braking or shifting gears impossible.

We only need an hour-and-a-half, so we may get lucky. If not, the ride may have to be shortened, re-routed, or cancelled.

You be the judge, pay close attention to the forecast and the radar.

Dress your lower body for the temperature, dress your upper body for the Windchill.

Cover exposed skin.

See you at DQ,

Bob

Winter Riding

Hey Pavers,

Letting you know that conditions on the Moose Jaw River are optimal for riding.

Enough snow that you don’t slip, but not too much that it slows you down.

Out of the wind and away from traffic.

There are bare patches of ice on Plaxtons Lake and underneath some of the bridges, but these are easily navigated.

Since I was the only bicycle track I could find from the 4th avenue suspension bridge to the 4th avenue viaduct, I thought I better share this "best kept secret" with you.

Cheers,

Bob

Leaving from DQ on Caribou St W between 4th and 5th Avenue.

Last ride of the year and one of the coldest rides of the year.

Cover everything, more than one layer.

I will be trying out new -35C socks I got for Christmas.

Ride may be shorter than usual due to risk of freezing to death.

Thanks to everyone who came out this year:

Frank, Mark, Eric, Rob, Blasia, Jeremy, Stu, Jennifer, Tim, Mike, Dave, Rob, Warren, Marlon, Chris, David, Josh, and Brian.

Hope to see you all again in 2018.

And I hope you invite new people so we can share the great trails of the Moose Jaw river valley.

See you at DQ,

Bob
