Ciao Patricio, oh...did not know Island Inn will have a farewell... thank you for inviting me! I am away to Texas this weekend and unfortunately wont be able to come. Hope you are well, so are yours. I am busy as always, but will have a break (will play tennis in Dallas - small 3 days tournament). Misha (K) Hi Misha (K)! Sorry we won't see you on the 23rd but Buona Fortuna with tennis in Texas!

Wayne Sutherland shared a memory Patrick James Dunn Happy Mother's Day Flamin'! Look at your baby chicks now! Congratulations on a job more than well done, (with a little help from Sarge, of course)!
Marvelous Mother's Day ride, although quite a bit of high cloud cover. This being the case, it was pretty good weather for a longish ride, not too, too warm, and not too, too cool. Started off with the Olympic Village standby to put me at 24 km when I left Kits Point. Already having logged such distance I knew I'd be in terrific shape for an Iona junket, all of the various stretches falling into place as I ticked them off. Past Crown I encountered a "police incident" on Marine and Dunbar but dipsy-doodled my way out of the flashing light bottle-neck to keep on towards Barnard. Did a couple of lops here, to the Musqueam Marina and back, twice, so that when I hit CSTB, I had logged 50 km. Not much more than autopilot from there until I hit Iona and did that loop to register 70 km by the time I was back on Marine and heading for campus. Smooth sailing from then on, trying to push my AVG, hoping to register 23 kph by the time I was home. Could only achieve 22.9 kph on last stretches where I could make any speed, Point Grey Rd and slight incline past Kits Pool, so decided I'd keep going past Heartbreak Terrace, on Lamey's Mill Road to see if I could break the 23 kph barrier. Did just that by the time I'd reached Olympic Village and turned off my Garmin at the Salt Bldg as I was a'feared that the head wind, on the return stretch home, would cause me to drop below this AVG. Need not have worried, [But how was I to know?], as the AVG for that short stretch was 23.8 kph! Nevertheless, overly chuffed with the day's results, manipulated or not!
