Next CM I'm busting out the handlebar tripod. That should be good for some mayhem.

I'll bet we passed each other in the market without realizing. I'll be there again today, supposed to be even nicer. Then I'm gonna try and track down an adapter. Neither Active Surplus nor that place on Bloor & Butt Rash have one with the specs I need. If Radio Shack doesn't have it I guess I'm out of luck.

I wonder about a lot of the commuters questioned in that survey.. Unless they magically only chose the most hardcore riders or something. The majority of people on road bikes? I don't know about that. The vast majority ride every day? Maybe they do, but only weather permitting. If it's raining or Winter I see FAR less people out there. etc, etc, etc. But I guess at least it's a sign that some major media outlets are paying some attention to cyclists for a change.

I saw a guy yesterday on harbord. Looked like he was maybe in his 50s (grey hair, etc). Dirty clothes. Big "construction worker" boots on platforms (with the standard "heels on pedals, toes pointed out" stance). And he was riding a Look framed (or at least a frame with large Look logos) fixie (potentially a single speed I guess). Is it wrong that I automatically assume it's stolen?

Anyone riding today?

its the same as riding your bike through a beach.

and I finally found a good route to get downtown quick. my time today was around an hour and a 1/2. I'm aiming for around hour or so by summer vacation.
It's been like that since last spring when the Don crik overflowed. You should have seen the washed out bridge and all the deadwood piled up. Must have been quite a sight in flood. There is some sand in spots but it's a reasonably easy pick through. I generally just use the south end and climb out of Willket to Leslie (i.e. pothole boulevard).

I may be heading out to the Westend for a bit so if anyone wants to hook up downtownish, post.

I thought that area was just camera stores and pawn shops? I'll explore if nothing turns up at the Shack.

...don't remember a skull helmet, but I'll be sure to say hello. I'm usually on a black Puch.

Anyone know what the hell is going on with Toronto's trail networks?! The waterfront trail is still shut down past the CNE and now the enterence to the Don MUT (my favourite when it's quiet) is shut down until May '07. Looks like I now have to use the road all the time...

This is likely the reason behind the Don closure:

Not sure what's up adjacent to the CNE. Sort of looked like reconstruction the last time I was by there.

Just got the May/June issue of Canadian Geographic in the mail, and Toronto's Critical Mass was featured in the back pages. Anybody recognize anyone in the pictures?

Well, there's this link, but unfortunately it's only an excerpt from the magazine. I could scan the rest of the pictures in, I guess?

I gave up on scanning the Canadian Geographic article, software doesn't want to cooperate anymore; check any Chapters/Indigo, they'd probably have the May/June issue on the stands by now.

About my avatar - yes, it's my leg. I think I took the pic a couple week's after my bike/car collision in October, so my thigh was probably bruised slightly. A more recent pic, a few months after the third (in a span of three months!) car/bike collision (no stiches for the first two collisions, then about five on the underside of my right knee for the last in December). Yes, I'm very accident-prone.
