    Another Canuck

    Greetings all, I just wanted to say hi/hello.
    I'm typing this from work and still acheiving 100% performance, cause while nothing is broke, I'm peaking on efficiency.
    You see I monitor internet and TV services here in the (Greater) Toronto Area.
    When I'm not basking in the glow of the 120 TVs :sleep: , I can be found out on one of the many trails that dot the landscape around Toronto.
    I am a mountainbiker. I own 3 steeds... a Blur , a steel reto-fitted singlespeed , and a commuter bike that almost never commutes .

    I can't promise to post offen, as I'm not super chatty; however I do promise to follow the rules and always speak my mind.

    Cheers.

    Well then, not super chatty? A man of few words?

    Just kidding. Welcome to the forums!

    If your a beer lovin , back-bacon eatin, toque wearin, hockey player...then no. Its a term of endearment.
    Its also the name of a hockey team. As in the Vancouver Canucks.
    I have chosen the path of knowledge. To my chagrin, I find it overgrown and disused; difficult to travel. I press ahead anyway…

    hey zzyxzz, welcome. i'm a newbie here too.

    I haven't been on any of the Toronto area trails for over 6 years now (lived in Peterborough for a while and stopped biking for a bit when I moved back to Toronto). Mostly I'm biking now as an alternative form of transportation, but I'm interested in getting back on the trails.

    Where are the good ones these days? I used to ride the Don Valley trails mostly as they're the closest to me. And back when I rode a lot High Park still allowed bikes on trails, though I understand that's no longer the case.
    Where would you recommend I ride?
