Your MIVA president went to Java Expressions Saturday at  8.45am to see how many turned up for the regular club ride. By 9am, no sign of life but, just afterwards, Kyle Waring rolled up on his new Trek Madone and then treasurer Phil Birrer joined the madding throng. By 9.15am, no-one else had shown, so the duo headed off against the wind to Parksville via Departure Bay Road and Aulds Rd. Anyone out there with suggestions re. how we can arrange club ride times, days, etc. to better serve the membership, please contact us with your ideas.
