I had a blast riding around today. I was going through queen's park for a while testing out my winter fixie in the snow for the first time. I was doing full out 2 wheels skids across the fresh snow and skids where I would actually be able to pedal backwards for reverse traction and all kinds of fun stuff. On the road I had to be a little careful because my disc brake locks up the front wheel into a skid if I'm not very light handed.

It makes riding much more interesting to say the least.

I had no choice but to sit on the bus. I left my road bike downtown when I went home late on transit last night. Thought about taking my mtb then realized that it was a 30km hike to school which I really didn't want to do.

The 1.25" tires on my road bike doesn't handle ice very well.

Oh yeah, it took the bus 3 hours to go the 15.7k from my house to finch station, my ass started hurting. At least no one farted.

you guys are a joke. clog up the forum with your nonsense and get dropped on a ride before it starts. its just a tempo ride until 7 and keele, that was not a sprint it was just ramping up to speed for the rest of the ride to the bake shop. you jokers did not even get to the hills.

No one is forcing you to read it. As for your elitist attitude, you can shove it. Arrogant ****** like you get their bikes trashed by my $25 steel road bike. You better hope you never meet me on that ride.

From reading your other posts it seemed that you've been molested one too many times as a kid. It sounds like you didn't even read any of the posts.

pinerider,
as you have suggested, I visited the Canadian cyclist forum, I can't find anything that will enhance my cycling ability, the things that I have read in that forum are all trash talks, I was ready to sign up, but the people who are posting there, I think doesn't have anything better to do, but talk trash. I like the classified ads, in fact I have posted some time ago about a wheelset that I am trying to sell, everything else in the site except for the forums are good.

Oscar, my reply was directed to ewitz. The tone of his posts is much more suited to what you'd see on the Canadian Cyclist forum where the main purpose seems to be for posters to cut each other up, not like the friendly people you meet here!

No rollers for me, I'm planning on commuting all winter. I've got a VeloSport touring bike for my main ride, and an old Norco MTB with rack and fenders for the messy stuff and studded tires for the icey stuff. I'm keeping the road bike handy, plan to get out on the nice days. Managed to get a lot of roadrides in last year between Christmas and New Year's, doubt if the weather will be as nice this year!

I almost didn't go out riding yesterday because of the weather, but then I realized I was making a terrible mistake and hopped on the bike and got totally soaked. It was fun though!

Well said, my last good road ride about 3 weeks ago was a triple escarpment climb - up 3 different access roads and down 3 different access roads. Some of the fan paint on the road from the World Championships is still there at the top of the Claremont Access, but it's getting faded now.

Commuting is good in Hamilton, most of the drivers are reasonable and the bus drivers usually go out of their way to give you some room when they can. Commuting seems to be getting more popular, too, I saw 3 brave souls out in the rain/wet snow this morning when I drove my wife to work.

-23 with windchill, I know what you mean about uncoiling your bike lock cable. I was trying to pick up last minute gifts on Sunday, when I brought my bike back into my apartment my gloves stuck to the steel frame from the sudden build up of frost due to the indoor tempurature change. unreal....

hey does anyone know of stores in Toronto that carry those UnderArmour balaclava's ?

http://www.underarmour.com/ua2/ua/de...=0503&mscssid=

The SportChek in the eaton center only has the shirts and pants... non of the other stuff....

go to velotique on Queen street East/corner Coswell/ or go to European bound right infront of MEC, or try visiting a fishing Gear store, I am sure they will have this Bug Repellant. Or maybe you can go to MEC on Line store, they may have the bug Repellant online
