Subway or not. It's still 1.5 hours to get home which is quite the annoying. I don't know if you guys have ever tried riding up Yonge st. in the evening. It gets real sketchy north of Lawrence. Especially going under the 401 on ramp.

Got a nice vintage Campagnolo front brake on the Rossin now, to replace the 105 that was on it.

The springs on it are really strong.

I like it.

It feels like it will last forever, which is probably true.

Well, I lived. Did okay too. Lots of fun. One guy brained himself on a pole though ... hopefully he's okay. Other than that ... ya, I'm going to go eat dinner now. Thanks to everyone that showed up and especially Somna for hanging out w/ me for half the race. Joe Bent, his delightful sig.other, Somna and I sat around on the island for a few hours after the race and did some good grass-sittin'/liquor drinking.

definitely. Good times! Now time for food. Next time I'll do the race officially.

Might be up for a lazy ride tomorrow if it's later in the day.

32flavours: you rode right past my partner and I on Bloor yesterday evening just West of Ossington.

I would have loved to join you guys today but i put in a full days work at home around the house. Would like to get out on the bike tomorrow but the wife thinks father’s day will be better spent at the Bowmanville zoo & she’s probably right.?

Oh operator, taking northbound Don Mills north of Eglinton is awesome - it doesn't have as steep inclines/valleys as Yonge, plus it has a HOV lane.
