I live in Oshawa and the riding just east of you is great. Check it out. What kind of riding road/mountain?

Just dress in less clothes than you think you need when you go out the door (you will heat up, alot!), and a water bottle. Other than that you don't really need anything. Maybe some trail mix?

I'm tempted not to bring my kit with me, (spare tube + wrench + mini pump). I have panniers so it isn't a big issue, but yeah what Shiz said, water bottle, wallet. And cell if you got one. But yeah finch is only around 10km from where you are, I can meet you at the country style on the SW corner of Yonge + 16th.

Yeah, Sunday looks great. It may rain a little, but it'll be the best weather we're going to have for a long, long time.

a little rain is nothing to worry about. As long as its not thunderstorming, you'd have to be a girlyman to cancel a ride before its even happened.

I'll come just to spank you Shiz. If everyone is alright with rain, i'm game. Everytime i've been on a ride with the TBN, it started raining they were like oh no we hate rain!

I'll make a new thread.

Sound off on this or the other thread if you are coming or not if you do happen to see this before (if) you leave for the ride tomorrow.

My cell is 555-screwyou, in case anyone needs to reach me, 12 noon time includes the daylight savings switch!

good ride everybody. I was feeling good so I ended up riding out to York Mills and bayview and then back home. I hope everyone feels good (feel better Kelly) and you should all stretch.

peace.

Yeah, good ride guys. It turned out to be a beautiful day in the end, which is also lucky for all the trick or treaters. Hope you're not infected Kelly! I'll keep my eye out for a bargain on a decent bike for you. As per request, here are the pictures; there are more but these were the best shots:

P.S. Door to door my odometer said 38.5km, so the official ride distance was probably around 35 or so.

Did you guys go up Bathurst this morning around 830ish-9ish? And see a cyclist on the other side with a purple jacket, black tights, blue helmet and a Camelbak on a yellowish-orange Devinci MTB?

Nope not us. Great pictures Shiznaz, #8 is a broken link though.
