The event is CBN but the Goldsprints themselves are probably Navid @ http://www.goldsprints.com/ &
http://www.r-evolution.cc/site/index.php I only learned about it this morning, I ain't on the mailing list anymore, can't remember which address I' used anyway.

Re: Gold Sprints @ Gladstone

I saw that advertised, but it sounded more like "reps" would be there for the event. I hope people will actually be racing. I'm gonna swing by later.

Did anyone else form up in an impromptu mini-peloton today during their commute? I had a great time joining up with groups of riders and taking over the road. Seeing so many cyclists out on the streets was pretty awesome (it seems like the best days in Toronto frequently coincide w/ "disasters" ... ie. blackout/transit strike).

pps. if anyone sees flyers for goldsprints/alleycats/whatever, post it in here, huh? I rarely pay attention to flyers anymore, so I never notice when stuff is happening.

Seeing so many cyclists out on the streets was pretty awesome (it seems like the best days in Toronto frequently coincide w/ "disasters" ... ie. blackout/transit strike).
I hated the strike today... it was absolute chaos in the financial district... so many cars out in gridlock idling, I was hacking my lungs out, and there was barely any room to get down the road so I was riding in between lanes and jumping up onto teh sidewalk and people were opening their doors everywhere. Some idiot got himself stranded right in the pedestrian crossing at bay and front and I accidentally hit his car with my bike as I walked it by. He yells crazy profanities at me, so I yell some back and tell him he is an idiot for blocking the intersection. Then he tells me to come over to his car and I tell him to get out of his car and come to me. He doesn't so I yell some final profanities and ride home in the haze of posion dodging all the more angry and inexperienced auto commuters.

as i heard them called on CBC yesterday: "stationary bike sprints" (it sounded funny *at the time*...or, more likely, i am just easily amused).

traffic dodging today was pretty damn fun.

the only thing I hate is when you ride through a cars exhaust and it suddenly gets 30 degrees hotter for that split second
