Didn't we all talk about this weeks ago? How come you have to work now? We'll be at the track until at least 4:00 or 4:30, and the drive is probably around 2.5 hours.

Can everyone who's coming out on Saturday email me to confirm? Just to make sure we have an idea of numbers when we're leaving on Saturday morning. wes at somnambulant dot net

And the invite is totally open to new folks as well. If you didn't chime in when I originally came up with the list, feel free to send me an email. I can't guarantee space, but I think we'll likely have room for another couple people.

okay so for those who expressed interest in riding this sunday: start point is balzac's roastery, in the distillery district (building no. 60, entrance off mill st - e of parliament, s of front st), 10am sunday morning. the plan is to go for 100km or so going north out of the city up to about newmarket, west to jane street and the infamous rolling hills and south again to the city. if needed there are rest stops, some nice bakeries along the route. moderate pace, good company, good climbing. lemme know if i left anything out.

You could always go for one of them kinesis straight blade forks. They come in the 1" threaded flavours.

Is it just me or does this fork look pooched. http://toronto.craigslist.org/bik/169378069.html

On another note, does anyone know what's up with Parts Unknown. There's some mouthbreather selling jewelry in the alleyway and it looks like access is blocked. This makes me sad.
