A big shout-out, Strava style, to Tripleshot Cycling Club – recognized in 2014 as BC’s Cycling Club of the Year

63 kilometres of bike-writing from January 8, 2015… 

Shortly after scrawling my Happy 2015 message and muddling through my big Strava selfie, I set about planning my third Strava art and bike-writing project: a shout-out to the club I ride with in Victoria, BC.

In 2014, Cycling BC – the provincial governing body for the sport of cycling in British Columbia – recognized Tripleshot as “Road, Track, Cyclocross Club of the Year.”

With upwards of 200 members, Tripleshot is Victoria’s biggest cycling club, well known for camaraderie, inclusiveness and an enthusiastic spirit of fun.

I hooked up with Tripleshot right after I moved to Victoria three and a half years ago. After hundreds of rides with the Tripleshot gang, I can say unequivocally that the “Club of the Year” honours are well-deserved indeed.

But oh, to be in Phoenix or Baltimore or San Fran – anywhere where the grid of roads offers a vast canvas of “Strava art pixels”! There’s no such thing as “writing on ruled paper” here in Victoria.

See it on Strava
