Capital City Cycles

Malahat mash

Two weekends ago Clay, Parker and I went on a nice little ride.

We rode to Shawnigan Lake via Brentwood Bay and Mill Bay and then back through Shawnigan and down the Malahat to Victoria. The ride was about 90km and we took our sweet time doing it.

This is only the  first in a series of long rides we intend to do somewhat informally through the shop. These rides are all about fun. There will be beer stops and good food along the way. Hammer if you want to ride alone. So start putting some km’s in and join us on the next one.

The equipment was low tech this time as we were all riding brakeless fixed gears. The photos nicely compliment that style since they were all shot on cellphones.

So much fun

I had a beer in here somewnere…

Clay Ulrich (likes the drops)


Parker climbs like a goat…he pisses you off when he tiptoes up the hills firmly seated in the saddle while you wrestle the bars and mash the pedals standing up and tasting blood

There is a barista beauty in this establishment, we’ll make a point of going there again…

Shady pub for shady people…love it

Artois / Artios who cares some European snob beer…Okenagan/Okenagen well, basically get a Budweiser you sissy

 

Nixon trail/Langford lake, Clay thought it would be fun to take a little cross side trail…he was right
