    Did you notice I have a small class? Only ~100 students at the upper school division (6th-12th).

    I assumed the class was large and those who decided to do the ride was small. That's cool that they got everyone to participate. Really cool.

    Fixed, i had meant 1200.

    I had read some reviews that said offroad trails would tear these tires up, but that is not the case at all

    I think my iPhone needs to be replaced (it's under warranty). Does anyone see a sort of color vignetting effect? Like it is pinkish in the middle, and green around the edges.

    Here's a picture that demonstrates the color vignetting effect. I copied a section from the center of an image, and moved it to the edge of the image. You can clearly see the issue.

    I see it, but as you probably know, the camera on the iphone and ipod etc. are known to be poor. On mine the video is incredible but the still camera is sh1t. That's why I use my casio mobile for photos.

    In saying that though, your photos are pretty good as is.

    The lock button doesn't work, and my previous iPhones (my iPhone 3GS has been replaced twice) didn't have the vignetting issue. After finals are over, I will be taking it in to the Apple store for a replacement.

    Hehe thank you. I'll have to put up with this piece of **** for another week before I can get it replaced. I really have to put all of my energy into preparing for finals. I have two finals tomorrow (english and hebrew), two finals on monday (honors geometry and world history) and one final on tuesday (biology). I won't be able to bike until then Thursday, June 9 (Tuesday after finals, my entire school goes to the local amusement park and Wednesday is supposed to be rainy)

    I already have my essay outlined for tomorrow's english final. We are allowed to bring in notecards for the final, so I have the essay outlined on notecards. It's an essay on A Separate Peace, and we are also allowed to bring the books into the final, to quote the material.

    The hebrew final is just reading comprehension, fill in the blank, and prefixes/suffixes that change the ownership of certain words.. It's kind of confusing, but I have all most of the material down pat.

    I'll study for math, history, and biology over the weekend.

    Today, I fought bravely to defend the honor of hybrids ... I entered my hybrid in a time trial race
    Obviously I did not intend to win but it was my first race ever and I had a great time.
    It was very windy with a headwind on most of the long stretches and the course was tricky with a lot of 90 degree turns over not too great roads between fields.
    I averaged just over 35km/h (just under 22mph) over 18 kilometers (11,2 miles) and was pretty happy with that result considering the use of a hybrid bike, the hot weather (30 degrees centigrade) and the wind.
    I don't have any pictures yet since they aren't available online yet but will post them as soon as I get 'em.

    This is the usual route that I take on my rides. I usually connect to a different path, but I decided not to do that (time issue).

    Just got back from Ride the Drive and had an absolute blast. I think going there, doing 4 loops, and coming back added up to over 50 miles, my longest ride so far. I got to test ride a Trek Madone 5.2 (Want!) and a Trek FX+, both nice bikes, plus a few other interesting things, like a bike with 36" wheels. Also it was my first ride on my GT after adding a new fancy wheelset, it is starting to turn into a very nice bike.

    I did 24 miles today with my wife on the Chippewa River Trail. Meridean to Durand for lunch at the Corral Bar and then back. Rode my 2009 Giant Cypress DX. Sorry, I gotta remember to take pictures with this fancy smartphone I got. Next time.

    First ride today on my new Trek 7.5 FX (I have a Devinci road bike, though didn't get out much last year) Bought it to commute, gave it a nice 40k test ride through St. Catharines, along the Welland canal trail up the Niagara escarpment next to the canal and locks then around and down the escarpment. Great ride, like the bike, easier on rough pavement or multi-use trail then my road bike (32 tires vs 23's). Never used SPD pedals before - Look cleats on road bike - I like them especially w double sided pedals at intersections.

    lol.... I was hoping for a bit of a "splash effect". From the top of the helmet, they run from one side to the other (randomly) diagonally.
