    ps. if anyone is interested in doing some fairly easy going rides, I was told that anyone is welcome on the training rides for the Toronto->Montreal charity ride I'm doing. There's one every weekend and the distances increase every week. This week was 50km. The next ride is next Saturday morning, starting at Finch station and totalling 54km. Here's the schedules /w maps: http://www.bikerally.org/trainingrides.html

    pps. My gf and I went to Dos Amigos at Bathurst & Dupont for dinner. Pretty good stuff! I've never been that impressed with any Mexican food in the city, but this place was pretty tasty and reasonably priced. Plus we got a shot of tequilla and a chaser of sangria on the house for Cinco de Mayo... My gf doesn't drink much so I had both. PLUS a fine margaritta. GoodTimes!

    ppps. I think I have to get those On-One Mary bars.

    Road ride Tomorrow (Sunday) at 9am @ Curbside Cycle. Meet outside. I'll be on my raodie, but I'm sure going fixed would be cool too if you have the legs. It's not a hammer-fest.

    man... why do your training rides have to be on saturday
    maby I should play hookie from work.

    [venting]
    actually, today before work I went into eaton centre to line up at that new apple/ipod shop to pick up a free apple t-shirt. (I've been wearing the same t-shirts from gr. 8 and the only way I get new ones are birthdays and freebies)
    anyways, I ended up being late for work and also ending up w/ an awful t-shirt that said EATON CENTRE w/ the apple logo.

    I should went training ride grr...

    That's like. 5km up and a nice 5% 1.3km hill just before hitting it up to teh lake. My favourite short baseline TT ride destination.

    But then 30km to finch station and back + about 12 extra for the lake wilcox. Probably around 42km unless you do some roundabout ways... and stuff.

    I'm too^H^H^H good for 54km.

    PS The notes on the ride maps is jokes. (e.g. NOTE: There are very few variety stores in
    the countryside – ensure that you are stocked
    up on food and fluids before leaving the city.)
    PPS I own Lake Wilcox.

    How many people and what's the pace like usually somnambulant?

    anyone still interested in riding tomorrow? i was going to stop at jet fuel first to round up any potential riders but i think i'm going to hang around the house a bit with the wife and the dog and just do it solo later in the morning. enjoy your day all.

    how was the jet fuel show? who won that bag? since no one called me i know who it wasn't...

    PS - i have pink bike all built up but it need tweaking, perhaps a new headset.

    Some dave.. guy I think. He wasn't at teh show. Man that bag was sweet. $235!! The show was cool with some snacks. Two homeless dudes just strolled in took some food and left (hilarious).

    As mentioned before the UTW crew was there.

    There's usually around maybe 50 people (I'm guessing) and the pace is anywhere between "as slow as they come" and "we out-gear the fixie guy".. The pack stretches out and breaks into little groups almost immediately.

    ps. quitcherbi7chen.

    Thanks for coming guys! It was fun! That's the largest number of people from the interweb I ever met! We were afraid that it would be a lot of people and I'd be serving all night while Anais would be talking all night (she reclusive like me), but since I totally didn't do a flyer it was a small friendly crowd. Hey Ben you still over there in the Japan? lucky dude!

    Anything on the menu is what the certificate is good for at the Jet Fuel and if you won a t-shirt tell us which one you want from the site, or goto American Apparel site and pick a style/size/colour/print/print colour and email it to us.

    btw speaking of charity rides & training rides for the T.O. - Montreal ride, here's one that's both;
    GIRO T.O.

    Looks like it'll be a lot of fun, rest stops every 7-10k & a short loop if you don't have all day. I'ma be ride marshall, I guess they have a need for slow ass crippled ride marshalls to shepherd the children & such. I may wimp out and serve food at a checkpoint, have to ask my knee closer to the day.

    I was just wondering about locking up my bike in a secure area. I have an Ultegra equipped Specialized Roubaix and love riding it but don't feel comfortable locking it up anywhere. Are there any secure bike lockup areas downtown? I know many of the hospitals have them with video surveillance for their staff but what about a public one? I think that some of the Green P parking lots have bike lockups by the booths where you pay but that is the only place I can think of and even that isn't secure because I don't think there are any cameras. Does such a thing exist?

    edit: Paul, thanks for the CL link, waiting for a response. IM isn't working for me right now, cheers.

    No they do not. Especially for any length of time greater than 30 minutes where you cannot check on the bike or see it.

    Edit: They demo'ed these big bike boxes which you can put your entire bike in at the bike show, but I have no idea if they're even thinking of implementing that.

    Yes from what ARC said the City is going to Implement bike lockers and there is a bike lock up near downtown but I forget where it is

    This as of October 2005 off the city's website

    5) NEW Bike locker project

    Transportation Services, in partnership with the TTC, will be initiating a long-awaited Bike Locker Pilot Project over the next several months. Lockers provide secure individual bicycle parking that is especially appreciated by commuters who may be reluctant to leave their bike locked in the open all day. Bicycle lockers will be installed at several locations across the city, and will be available for rent on a four-month term, for $10 per month. The new lockers will be installed and available for rent by early spring 2006. Proposed sites for this first phase of the pilot project include the new "Mobility Hub" at Exhibition Place, as well as Finch, Lawrence, Victoria Park, and Royal York TTC subway stations, and Toronto City Hall. We are also looking for other potential bicycle locker locations for the second round of installation later in 2006. If you are interested in renting a locker, contact David Tomlinson by e-mail, at dtomlin@toronto.ca or by telephone, at 416-392-8400. Please indicate your preferred locker location -- either from those mentioned above, or any other suitable spot.

    I don't get why they chose subway stations for the bike lockers. You can't bring the bikes on during rush hour (when you'd want to) anyways...?
