It's been pretty interesting monitoring the segments this week - both QOMs and KOMs changed hands several times! I couldn't keep up with giving out congratulations! 😂 #1stWorldProblems
This coming week is the Rest Week as promised, but I won't be handing over the points... There's a whopping 50pts for each segment for each person who rides them, but you'll have a bit of a trip for at least one of them. But it'll be worth it!
I had a fun ride on Saturday with several of our Segment regulars, doing part of the 'Gravel Triple Crown' route, so fun to get out on the bike with people in the group!
It was a hoot watching a bunch of the races at the BC Provincial Crit Champs around the Legislature today! Lots of familiar names out there racing, and even a few new (and past) Provincial Champs in our midst! Thanks for putting on a show!
Also of note, I've teamed up with local QOM collector and coach Holly Henry to put on a Road Climbing Clinic. We're planning it for Saturday, July 29th at the Observatory, and is geared for anyone who wants to enjoy climbs more, and/or climb faster. It's $25, and if interested, hit reply to reserve a spot! (Will be posting more info soon, but feel free to take advantage of this early alert if interested!)
And for the cyclocross fans, there's a memorial race coming up July 27th at Driver Lake in Nanaimo, save the date, and here's the Facebook post.
Notes for the week:
Paging Christine Neal! It's great to have you back, but I don't believe you've signed up on the website form, please do so, I'm assuming you still want to be in the C field, but please confirm!
Other than that, welcome to our new riders!

This week's Premium Sponsor is Twitter. From their advertising department:
Thank goodness for these cheap places to advertise!
Please come back to Twitter! We're sorry for Elon's bonkers antics, racism, sexism, and all the other ism's he'll do. (Well, unless you're into those things!) He's an out-of-touch billionaire, but if you ignore him the platform is sometimes really great!
It's like Threads, but with a few more bugs. Okay, literally nothing has gotten better since Elon took over, but that doesn't mean it'll keep going that way! Use #NotBitterAboutTwitter for 20% off!
Alt rock? Blues? Shoegazer? Is shoegazer even still a thing? Well, whatever the Eels are, that's what jamming out of my speakers at the moment!
Quirky lyrics and an eclectic mix of styles, typically catchy and surprisingly touching and emotive, if looking for some new music check out their Essentials album. 🎶
