    thanks to everyone who showed up for the impromptu chinatown bun ride.. not even getting split up 1 minute into the ride could keep us from our destination: the heavenly kim moon bakery on dundas. damn, we bought a lot of buns.
    bikeophile, you still have my buns!!!

    Nice meeting you all too. I'm still full from all the buns. Nice bike shop crawl too... I think we freaked George out a bit by all coming in there at once.

    bikeophile, you still have my buns!!!
    i...uh....well...your buns were good too...sooo full....
    Thats the best part of being the only dude with a bag and a bad memory.....buns galore!!!! ooph!
    Hopefully Chris made it home safe and sound!

    I bumped into a messenger buddy of mine and we rode around for a bit...he is working for 2 messenger companies at once right now....too funny...when he gets enough calls, he turns off his radio until he catches up!!

    I have a little road trip to take you guys on next time...west end...kind of an exploration...if we find the place I think we will....it wil be like a pot of gold...don't bring wallets though...otherwise we'll do something silly and impulsive....I'll tell you about it more later...

    Not sure about this weekend...but I might be riding this Friday again...was thinking of a nice quick spin up the Don Valley trail (up to Eglinton and back) and then maybe hitting...oh I don't know...KIM MOON?

    by the way...im off to the post office to see if my levels showed up....Cam, there might be some black ones in there

    Hopefully my tax refund will be here this week. I'm working Friday, so I'm not on.

    I work full time so I'll never be able to make it out to these middle of the day rides. Sometimes I'll work late (like till 8 or 9pm) that's when I find downtown is a deadzone, sometimes despite working the previous 12 hours I'll just end up rolling around the city for a couple of hours longer. Night rides are great in the middle of the week nary a car to be seen on most side streets.

    no problemo...we'll make it another time then
    Cam, the hubs are even nicer than we thought they'd be...I am going to post pics of the black ones later tonight...

    I have only been able to make the afternoon rides because I've been stuck on midnights..and Fridays I try to stay up after my shift...I should be switching back to days within the next few weeks though...

    What about the friday nights TBN rides? 6:30pm on Fridays.

    And Kim Moon sounds good. MMM. What do you guys think of these shorts at MEC?

    the days are getting longer but nothing like a nice ride in the city when the lights have gone down. i finish work at around 8pm and nothing relieves stress more than getting out and riding.

    rob, i had no idea the levels hubs were so beefy. the one you have on your rear wheel looks like a fookin artillery shell. quite the contrast with the miche you're running up front.

    i'll be making a kim moon run but without the don-valley-trail detour unfortunately...people at work have expressed interest in bbq pork buns.

    those look alright..right price too.
    wrong colour for me though....
    actually, i haven't worn bike shorts in ages.. my butt doesn't get sore and the ol' groin pit doesn't get chaffed so i don't bother.
