Stink, I knew I should work less and surf bf more. Too late for me to get there.

Sad about the cyclist, looks like another vigil...

Now kids... If you're going to behave like this, it's the last time I won't not drink with you.

Don't forget about the CBN bike swap Sunday morning. I volunteered for the first slot helping to set up so I can scoop the goods, nyah hah hah.

Other than that, an odd day riding. Some goombah on a mountain bike drafted me from O'Connor down to the Danforth. I wish people would learn to share the lead. I thought my chain was about to fall off until I noticed him behind me. I was then waiting to turn left onto Dundas and some woman turning left yelled at me. Hey! You were speeding! That's great.

Almost the weekend.

For those of you who've been to the bike swap before, what kind of goods can I expect? Decently priced frames or completes? I ask because I'll be there with a few friends who are looking for bikes, not just components and accessories.

that's me...I'm Tom... what's going on again?

been at work past 10pm every day this week, I'm looking to ride eveings again though next week? CV? works best when it's mentioned a day in advance or so too...

oh and there was another bike fatality sadly... somewhere up on a Steeles a women was hit... just saw it on the 11 o'clock news.
lots of people pulling out they're bikes for the first time this year... what a difference riding all winter vs. seasonlly makes on your traffic awareness...[I think]. I'm seeing lots of riders out (which is good).... seeing lots of stupid cyclist moves in traffic too (bad)

CBN Bike Swap? What... Where? and what does CBN stand for?

And why oh why is it the same day as the MEC gear swap. My only hope is that it starts before 11 and I can send my dad to line up for the MEC swap.

The bike swap is actually happening in the MEC parking garage, so you'll be set.

Edit: keep safe out there, folks.

yeah, I meant Dom(inique).

Mental note: going for a ride, then drinking pints, and THEN eating is the wrong order. Now I have a mini-hangover. gah, I'm turning into an old man.
