First time out to Wycliff (Ever). What a gorgeous ride... err drive... err whatever you want to do. Pretty happy my speed is picking up. Finished it off with a lap around Stanley . Ton's of riders out there today!

Your Reynolds Solitude Clincher wheelset was on Chainlove today, for only $250! Good deal, everywhere else is still $373.50 on sale.

Mighty Riders (W. Broadway)
Speed Theory (W. 4th)
Bike Gallery (W. 10th and also Kerrisdale)
West Point Cycles (W. 10th)
Obsession Bikes (Lonsdale/North Van)

Could be more but that's all I can remember. The ones in bold are places RS members have been to for fittings.

So my boss wants me to ride with him at this sundays Pacific Populaire. It's like a half distance brevet.

Not a race.. more like a ride... i was told by the boss that turn outs are in the hundreds.

The ride distance is 100km.

$25.00 day of registration, or $18 before midnight today.

Info and ride route below.

It's rain or shine.

what is the pacific popualire

I wouldnt worry about getting lost... there will be plenty of ppl to follow

but it is a brevet / randonneur ride... meaning u'll be carrying a card, going to check points and getting it stamped etc.

u then have to hand it in at the end and u get a finishers pin.

If u have anything to worry about, it may be fenders LOL ... because this weekend looks like it may be hellish. 100km w/ no fenders is asking for mud butt

They do both

Their fenders aren't bad. I see a lot of cyclists with their fenders on.

I like the Crud ones from PBK

i find fenders can only do so much if its raining/mudddy. My face was covered in dirt and mud doing the RTCC even when riding behind guys with fenders.
Make sure you have your glasses on...street gunk in the eye is no bueno

If you're so worried about people behind you, crud fenders aren't the best as they shake left and right while you ride and are too thin to cover the spray coming out the back

They do a good job covering the top of the tire so your ass doesn't get wet.

I have these. they're the most attractive out of the bunch but do not help for those behind you

For that, you need something wider, more rigid like sks raceblade long version, and most ppl will also cut a water bottle vertically in half and zip tie it to the back bottom of the fender for full coverage.
