  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: British Columbia BCSB Stolen Bike registry

    I thought I'd start a sticky for people to list their stolen bikes. This can be an easy reference point if you see something fishy on the market. To help with detailing the theft, report the date and location of theft, make, model, VIN, colour, location etc. Anything that could assist with...

    Well the day has finally arrived when WSDOT have issued the start day of the clearing of the Cascades.

  10. Anyone here use helmet/tank mounted cameras daily?

    I know lots of people use cameras to capture cool/scenic/group rides. Do any of you use cameras every-time you ride? Mainly thinking of two benefits of this (1) always tend to see lots of cool stuff when out riding (maybe because I'm more "in-tune" with my surroundings when riding vs when driving)...
