Well, here is to hoping my list of references checks out, and that I spend all summer cooped up indoors at Scotia Plaza doing soul killing logistical work for a bank... !

ps. I was referring to whining about us not going out for a ride, not whining about injuries. Complain all you want about how your joints ache on those cold damp mornings.

75k training ride today on the Pake. I = tired and satisfied. Tomorrow, however-long training ride on the Pake. Maybe not so satisfied after that one. Oh, and I'm totally down w/ CM+beer at the end of this month.

What is the drinking age here, can Operator come play too?
Will your mom kill us if we send you home loaded? Can you get home loaded?
Some tricks just shouldn't be attempted sometimes.

You know while it might be karmic-ally skewed we could all leave it a bit early as well, if we spot the perfect patio.

Hey, I'm actually moving to Toronto at the end of the summer. Unfortunately, it looks like my bike won't be making the trip with me (actually I might need to sell it for some cash to get me through some upcoming time of unemployment), so I will be in the market for a bike/frame. Any suggestions as to shops in the city? or should I secure a frame before hand? Checked out Toronto CL and didn't see much in the way of locals selling frames.

Don't bother with Toronto's CL, you get the usual 70's suicide stem shifter bike being sold for $100/$200. And then the $1000 fuji conversion.

Yes, you can pay me $20 when you meet me. Hell make it $50. I need some cash.

This is the route that's happening, pretty simple: http://www.bikerally.org/trainingmap...LakeWilcox.pdf

I'm going out for a short ride before the swirling mass of death gets here in about 1-2 hours.

I can order pizza with your card and get it delivered to you if thats what you mean I'm pretty sure I'll just be helping them fire cleaning ladies or something; nothing where I'd ever get close to any money

I'm an accountant at the Nigerian Bank, if he gives me a deposit, I'll loan him those 50 dollars.
