i'm just going through the online registration page.. maybe i'm not reading it right.. but the part about coming up with the 60 bucks in pledges.. do they expect you to make up the difference if the only people you can find for pledges are a bunch of skinflints??!

no you only need to get the pledges if you want to do the early start. Go for the regular start time and 50km route....no pledges needed, just the registration fee.

I think it might be the TBN members.

well, I'm going over on my own, but I'll be travelling around for most of june with a friend of mine. I'm spending the first week in paris at school while staying at my parents place, and then most of july I will be at school in Grenoble (right during the tour de france too... should be a riot!). The girl (not girlfriend) I'm travelling with however is not a cyclist, but I'm sure I could get her on some wheels every now and then

Shiznaz,
I live on Davisville, and I always take Mount Pleasant to go downtown or to go to the Lakeside trail, and it gives me the adrenalin rush and going back home is also a good way to have some workout, I also used Avenue Road going north start from Bloor its a nice easy uphill climb

If there weren't any cars it would be wicked sweet, but if theres even one its going to be shaving a thin layer of skin off of your left side. Also riding fast along queen between spadina and university is a fun obstacle course of peds, doors, taxis and street car tracks

You are insane Oscar. I used to do Mt Pleasant on my 52/16 (up and down) and I would still spin out...I swear my heart rate would be faster on the way down mt pleasant than it was going up! I would poop my pants out of fear of death every time!!! But it did give me a good rush!

I am now riding brakeless and 52/17 so I am a little more hesitant to ride that road at all.

If you can get yourself to Queen Street East and George Street, it is two doors from the corner store. George Street is one street East of Jarvis. What do you need from there? I was there today and there were some decent used frames for sale. Nice guy, he told me about another powder-coating place called Chameleon that I am going to try out for my next project.

I can't climb Mt.Pleasant at 53/17, I would be able to climb it on my 39/19, how about going down and climbing Scarborough Bluffs,whenI used to live in Scarborough, that.s howI start my weekend ride, ride down/up Scarborough Bluffs and then end it also that way, I get my bike riding really good exercise

i've signed up but haven't forked over the cash yet. hey bike O'phile, were you planning to have a fixie group ride together? i'm trying to get some other people signed up at work and i kinda feel bad if i don't ride with them... and they're looking for a "sunday drive"-type of ride if you know what i mean.
.... or maybe i can ditch em!

I'll check tonight. I think it may have come off a 56 cm road frame. What do you need?

Well I would love it if the fixies could ride together, but I totally understand the "having to ride with the coworkers", or at least "START" with the coworkers.

I have some coworkers and ex coworkers who are riding likely too (mostly NON fixie). I will start with them, but definitely not staying with them for the whole ride..

We're planning on going to C'EST WHAT (at Church and Front) afterwards for drinks and chow, so feel free to bring your coworkers. If they are interested, let me know (I am planning on making some reservations).

So for those others who have signed up...Speak up!!
