    Haha! Yup. That’s pretty much the WNHL (Wednesday Night Hockey League) in Ontario. Also funny how the WNHL is such an escape from the wife for one precious day a week.

    Bicycles? What are those? It’s been over 2 months since I rode MTB and it’s been less than 10 miles all year to date. BUT in other news, I played my 3rd hockey game of the year, well, since 2013 actually, and I still suck! The game got chippy due to a tight score line, but we won in OT 5 to 4! 1 Apple and a +1 for the night.

    Whenever I start thinking I'm awesome on my rides, I see this pop up from one of the folks I follow on Strava:

    Then I just shake my head and am glad I can ride a bike at all.

    A fairly good friend of mine is a near pro and has ~ 5 National MTB Championships for his age group. A few different lengths of races .I have been in probably 200 races between CX and XC with him.
    My goal is always to be at least half as fast as he is. I'm about 50/50 on that. I do have about 15 years and 60 lbs on him.

    Sorry folks, Nature is CLOSED!

    https://www.pe.com/2019/03/17/crowd...mpt-lake-elsinore-to-shut-down-poppy-viewing/

    Lake Elsinore officials, with roads and staff overtaxed by tens of thousands of people arriving daily to view the giant California poppy bloom north of the city, ended the city’s shuttle service and closed the viewing area Sunday.

    “The situation has escalated beyond our available resources. No additional shuttles or visitors will be allowed into Walker Canyon. Lake Street and Nichols ramps completely closed. We have to get traffic moving. This weekend has been unbearable,” officials wrote on the city’s Instagram account.



    It was unclear when or if the area would reopen to vehicle and pedestrian traffic.

    “We will evaluate all options next week including ways to shut this down. Thank you for your understanding. We know it has been miserable and has caused unnecessary hardships for our entire community,” the post said.

    Mayor Steve Manos posted several videos on his Facebook page Sunday. One showed Riverside County sheriff’s deputies ticketing illegally parked cars. Another showed the blanket of orange poppies, the crowd of visitors and the portable toilets that he said have not been cleaned fast enough because crews keep getting stuck in traffic.

    Saturday, the city made an urgent plea for visitors to reschedule their trips for another day. They compared the size of the crowds to those seen at Disneyland and called the shortage of staff and the clogged roads a public safety crisis.


    Authorities are looking to ease traffic congestion in Walker Canyon and discourage illegal parking on the freeway, amid Southern California’s most prolific wildflower bloom in years. Police and the California Highway Patrol stepped up traffic enforcement Saturday and Sunday and issued citations for illegal parking, officials said.

    There were no reports of other poppy viewing areas being closed.

    That's awesome......I love it.

    Now if they could only do the same for Blackstar.....between the "poppy people" and the "falls people", I could imagine it was just as bad over the weekend.

    How do you think it isn't worth pursuing? How can you say faking a hate crime, and smearing half the country in the process doesn't deserve punishment???

    Though it may add to the backlog of other cases, it does set a bad precedent that faking a hate crime isn't a big deal. That or celebrities aren't subject to the same legal process as the rest of the population.
