    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.
    Sweet!! Hov lane? How far does it go?

    ... leftover beer makes Mike not-so-good in MS Paint.

    Ferry was fine. We ended up not finishing there (it was way too packed w/ kids). That was just the initial after party/screwing around on bikes location.

    Ya, most useless map EVAR (never use a map w/out an index/grid system). We even called Somna's gf for some google maps help, but to no avail. That was the liquour store checkpoint, so in the end I just said **** it and went somewhere else (had to insure beer availability for later on). That got me a DQ since I hit up the wrong liquor store, but even after all the wasted time trying to find the place and going to a completely different one, I think I ended rolling in third overall?

    No too bad if you ask me for the first time out.

    I think it started just north of Eglinton and continued to at least Steeles if I remember correctly (probably further). Oh, and it's not like the narrow one on Yonge - it's a lot wider to fit both bikes and buses.

    Glad you had fun EyeFloater..... sounds fun. Third overall? Super!!!!! Some of the check point clues can be completely weird. and even the most local messer can be all WTF? Helps even things out. Sounds like they did a pretty good job. Any more word on the crasher? Happy Fathers' Day to all the Daddys out there. I'm heading up to New Market for the fourth time in two days about lunch time. My wife is doing an artisan festival thingy up there. Have a great day all.

    Round trips there and back x3....urgh, least this time I'll stay for the afternoon. hmmm BBQ
    Kaibot...the springs in those Campy's are flippin' awesome. Mine was 15 years old before it finally broke and I was still gettnig great response from it. Overall my fav brake, though I've got a designers' eye soft spot for Campy Delta's (haven't heard great things about them though).

    There ain't going to be no damn T-Storms. The weather people have no idea what the **** they're forecasting.
