Where does Maury's people find these folks. Maybe if you watch it enough you see the same folks over and over again.

I was on the old raliegh in Kensington Market I stoped at the stop sign at Agusta because there was a umarked police car there first so I stoped and let the cop go first then I went and turned behind the cop car and I see this ******* on a bike blowing the the stop sign comming at me and turning to hit me so I turn my bike so the rear rack will be the first thing he hits and he leans right into it and smashes his brake lever off and some other crap on the rightside of his bar and bonces off his top tube, I said your fault for not stoping ass hole as I slow down at the top off Agusta for the light and here comes happy sack behind me again with the intent of ramming my bike I lean the bike to the left and his front wheel spokes catch my bungy cord metel hooks on the bottom of my rear rack which bends a bunch of his spokes. I tell him < you got a ******** prob , he replies I broke his bike so I give him a hard shove with a warning so he tries to follow me I spin around on collage and cut him off and ask him how about I break your ******** face , that's when I smelled the booze and I think he soiled himself cause he went whiteand a slight oder announced itself . but besides that it was a nice day

Well, my input is to go to the underground parking garage at Huron and College (just around the corner from where we're meeting). Why would you have to lock your bike up during a ride?

was all this under the nose of the cops??! it's crazy that the guy kept coming after you.. i've heard about cars and road rage but sheesh.. i used to blow by the stop signs on the esplanade but way too many cops patrol that area between jarvis and parliament.. a patrol car stopped me once but i got off with a warning.

Cop had proceded through up the street and the guy was drunk and bike rage is common now from what I have seen but if he had ramed my leg or if I had been on the Pinarello I would have slaped him across the face .

Ahhh, betting, bragging rights and ribbing. The Tour is upon us.

I'm in. Valverde in Yellow for me. CSC for team, McEwen/Freire in green (undecided), Moreau in polkadot. The one I've gotta think about is the white jersey.

Does this thing have legs?
