2. AN ACTUAL EVENT REPORT! RLCT 2018
 Ben Basu   (General Comments)

Hmmm? Maybe an old fashioned event report is needed on TriRudy once in awhile. It seems nobody ever posts about races or rides anymore, but only post when they want to sell/buy/advertise something. TriRudy certainly has changed over the years. But I digress. Rideau Lakes 2018 was another fantastic weekend of high mileage cycling. On the Saturday I rode a hybrid classic/century to K-town with great weather and logistics by the OBC. Sunday I rode the 210K challenge route home which seemed a bit easier this year given that it was not 35C (2017) nor 30km/h headwinds (2016). As I have posted before, the Challenge route is really a nice change from the classic route and adds about 70 to 90 minutes of riding for the day. Again this year, I saw no other riders on the extra loop through Lanark and Almonte. The "Big Jim" salami sandwich, salt and vinegar chips and lots of coke proved to be the perfect nutritional plan over the day. I felt great pulling into Ashton with 35K to go. Thanks to the OBC, the OPP and all the volunteers who make this event a success year after year!

4. DOES "METABOLIC EFFICIENCY TRAINING" WORK?
 Pat B   (General Comments)

Has there been any discussion on this site of "Metabolic Efficiency Training" http://www.metabolicefficiency.org/ and the book "Metabolic Efficiency Training" by Bob Seebohar. It all sounds like another way to beat the bonk by changing one's lifestyle to eat more fruit and less candy. I know very little so far. I plan on getting the book and looking this over. Actually, many years ago, I started eating less candy and started eating more fruit a couple of years ago, so maybe this is in line with my personal approach, too?

8. TRIRUDY BACKEND AND COLDFUSION

Regarding the fact that Rogers web hosting will no longer support ColdFusion, the technology used to create Trirudy.

This has probably been a long time coming and we should have seen it coming. Technologies change.

There are surely enough techies in Ottawa and enough highly driven people in the tri community, that we can find a small number of people capable of re-architecting Trirudy.

A website, an race calendar, an events calendar, and a mailing list with daily digest. (I have a feeling that believe it or not the calendars would be the one thing hardest to replace well, not crappily, with an open source replacement.)

One person to lead the endeavour. A small team. We figure out exactly what features are needed. Work is divided up among team and done individually. I think a prototype for a new Trirudy could be hammered out in a week.

I do not have the time to lead such a team, but if we can get a leader, I'd help out with a chunk of the implementation.
