Yes indeedy right by the messer hangout/stand by spot. It's changed names so many times I don;t know what it's called anymore. It's a cool little park, and a good spot to create a little cloud of smoke, but I don't think that's why it's called that.

Is that still the messenger hangout? I'm never in that neighborhood during the day anymore. Stupid employment preventing me from going for rides/walks during the day with my camera in hand.

yes it will always be one I think.....location location location. I'm imaging it becoming an HR block with all the messers still hangin outside. I'm reluctant to alleycat , I don't know the addys, nor the messers short cuts or codenames for buildings. Sometimes these things are not for the unfamiliar, and being alley cats nor should they be. A testament to the insanity that is messing.

Besides I don't think I'd wanna race the bunch of you. Things can pretty hairy and dicey, and I would hate like hell to have to decide between my line and a bud.

cept in misjudging Shiznaz's MASSIVE wingspan he grabs my back wheel and splats me.
I don't mind racing around with friend's but racing friends' gives me the heebie geebies. I don;t like some of the choises one might have to make. Winning isn't everything but losing sucks, and there literally is only so much room on the street. If one of you guys went down in sight of me, I'd HAVE to stop....it's an alley cat not the TDF.

How small is this Sr20det person anyhow?

All kidding aside I prefer to leave the road alleycats to the messers.
I WISH i'd ridden that track we had here when it was Dunhill sponsoring.
One year my buddy's band was playin'...and friends were racing ...that track looked like an absolute hoot.

I heard it was for sale from a friend of the guy that was storing it. I wonder if it was boughtfinally.

OMG funny!!!!! I'm in for next year. I may do a couple local rides though. I'll either use my MTB, my "new" road bike, or maybe borrow. Isn't eyefloater doing the FFL to montreal this summer?

Check down the page for "Biking on a velodrome". Its a discovery channel daily planet segment they aired last night about the new Forest City Velodrome in London, Ontario. It features beginners and goes over their 'learn to ride' program. Its interesting but its no Lucas Brunelle! Makes me want to get out to the velodrome even more!
argh.. missing a "windows media player butt-plugin" for my mac... i really wanted to click on the "furriest lobster in the world" link too.

it sounds like a lot of fun and should be a hoot just to finish as the cavern-animal stated. shiznaz expressed interest in it too. i'd love to go but i'll need some good excuses to cancel prior engagements. hell, "sorry, but gonna go for a bike ride" should be good enough.

Google cache to build your own cell phone jammer. I took a look at the specs and I think you'd need an EE to build this thing.

The links work, they're just rather slow.
