    Boo ... it's all about the Moonbeam Cafe (3 doors east of Kensington & St. Andrew). I'm a big fan of their somosas and borekas.

    Edit: I'm working on Saturday - which blows because it would have been nice to meet some of you jackasses. Ahh well, my better half will be there with her shopping list as well as mine.

    I can't make it, I'm out of town doing a blacksmith course. Moonbean gets my vote too.

    yeah, if none of you yahoos are interested in meeting I'm getting my butt to clafouti for some croissants!

    The offer still stands though if anyone wants to meet up on bike or foot, before OR after. I've got zero plans during the day on Saturday so I'm trying to find something to do. Can you tell?

    edit: I'll also have to check out Moonbeam sometime soon by the sounds of it. And Faema is potentially on my way to work (not on my usual route, but that could change).

    and now for something completely different: have any of you guys been to the Velodrome in London? Anyone interested? It's a bit of a hike, but it might be fun once in a while.

    fixedude, where are you now? good croissants? brick street bakery in the distillery has my vote for best in TO. balzac's has decent coffee too. the weekend crowds are a riot to look at too.

    hmmm.... Looks like weekend is calling for poor weather, which means I'm not going camping (camping is 90% weather). So that means I'll be able to hit up the bike show AND the ski and snowboard show! Thanks for the kind offer Gokiburi, but I guess I'll see you there. I'm up for coffee beforehand or whatever, but I'm not a morning person so I may be a little out of it.

    So you guys are riding? 9:00-9:15 is fine I would think.. Just need enough time to have a coffee and get down to the Ex.

    shiznaz: Where's the ski/board show? I didn't realize that was this weekend.

    it's on st.andrew at kensington. st.andrew is the first street north of dundas on the west side of spadina. look for the big yellow building (it's on the corner of spadina/st.andrew). walk all the way down and moonbeam is a bit before the corner. i'm pretty sure we biked by it on the way to parts unknown.

    i can make it for 9-915am saturday morning.. so it's the moonbeam then?

    Haha, sweet. I live literally at Kensington and St. Andrew. I have to work at 11am, so I'll be able to stumble downstairs and say hello before I head to work. There's a nice patio at the Moonbeam out back and of course the tables out front. I'll see you guys then.

    And Somnabulant, I'm be interested in heading to the Forest velodrome. I don't have anything worthy of riding there right now, but I'd still be up for just getting there and renting a bike. I'm guessing if we did go we'd all have to do "Velodrome 101" or whatever their ultra-beginners course is before they set us loose.

    You will definitely have to do the track 101 before you are allowed to ride the track. They usually run these on Sat mornings starting at 9 but also often have a second one in the aft. The rental bikes are getting a little beat up from all the "101" use but better to beat up a rental than yer own learning. Buy the crash insurance in case you do go down so you dont have to pay for damage. A bunch of us are heading down in a couple of weeks.....maybe everyone who wants to go can get together and do a little car pooling?

    Cool, I might be up for that depending on what weekend it is. I have a car also, so I'd be willing to help with car-pooling. I don't have a bike rack right now though, so it'll have to be rentals. My bike has brakes anyway, so it'd be a pain to make it trackable.

    Yes, I'm still very interested in doing this and the Track Clinic thing. I don't have a car though but am willing to pitch in for gas money.

    I'll probably just take the exhibition street car down... not 100% sure though. I don't think I'll be able to meet up for coffee before anymore. Also, cavernmech: was that your blue rossin with cavern cycle stickered on it outside the ski/board show?
