Eyefloater - that was great. I didnt' realize it was you that said that to jerky boy. The other good one was motorist asks "What are you guys doing" Response: "Riding our bicycles". pregnant pause "I can see that."

So what kind of steel was your Lemond again eyefloater?
Ridiculous weight.

P.S The reaction on the drivers face when he turned north and saw the peloton onto that street parallel to st. george was priceless. I'll remember that forever.

Hey,

I have some pictures from the ride coutesy of veteran_youth.

I wasn't there though 'cause I had to work and my leg is messed up anyways.

Hope you don't mind me putting these pictures up Maki.



Looks like it was a lot of fun, I will make sure to get off work early next CM.

So this total ****** in a City T.V. "Live Eye" truck decided to buzz me on Queen this morning. He was in a HUGE hurry to get to the red light 75 meter's up the road. he raced past me with about 6 inches to spare...honking his horn and yelling obscenities out his window at me. I honestlt don't think this is the kind of behavior City wants from their truck drivers...especially after such a tragic week for cyclists in this town. My question....I am going to call City and lodge a complaint against this clown. I know how much of an effect cold calling with a complaint is (I will do it anyway but prolly will result in nothing) I was wondering if anyone out there in B.F. land knows anyone who works at City that could hook me up with the proper person to discuss this arses attitude withÉ Anyone.

Because ... you accidentally set the character encoding in your browser to something wonky?
