Well, I (unlike operator, i heard thunder when I went through Richmond Hill, but no lightning ) managed to make it to the Ride of Silence yesterday and at least met Lll Mitch; but unfortunately didn't get to say hi to steeker or sam houston (so belated hi's to you guys). Damn, I knew I shouldv'e stayed at City Hall for longer, that wouldv'e been cool to see Lll Mitches' tricks.

Oh hey, I started using white lithium grease for my bike chain and it works tonnes better than the wet lube (especially in the rain), anybody have any thoughts?

^Brodie Romax, I was in the yellow windbreaker.

Oh, operator, have you biked on Warden Ave. up North? There's a tonne less hills than Yonge St.; in fact, it doesn't get hilly until Bloomington or so.

irc = internet relay chat. It's like group MSN Messenger (realtime chat vs. posting messages on a forum here).

irc.undernet.org = an irc server (ie. bikeforums.net)
#bikeforums = specific channel on the server (ie. Bike Forums > Singlespeed & Fixed Gear > Toronto Fixed)

I learned how to type because of MIRC. (dbz chat battles.... whoever could type out action moves fastest won the fight... don't laugh, it was years ago)
anyways, I stuck around at urbane till 9 today because they were having a seminar for the toronto/montreal find friends ride. i was mildly heartbroken because sonambulance and eyefloater didn't show up.
but then again, the seminar was on basic bike mechanics haha.

anyways, prom is next week and I wasn't planning to go... but how can you not, if she's paying. so I was wonderin' if anyone has a tandem I can rent/borrow for the night.
