    I did my usual "Hey, take it easy! We're all out here to have fun after all" Then they asked us our names and threatened to kick us out of the FFL main ride. So I said my name was Wesley Hodgson and that I don't care if they kick me off the ride! Anyways, it wasn't a bad ride in the end but holy christ was it hot and sunny. I drank about 6 liters and peed about 125ml. Me and rob both kind of bonked out around the 90-100km mark so it was slow going on the flats and hills after that. I ended up clocking 149km round trip; I didn't have the motivation to turn it into a real century. At one point I thought something had slipped into my bike shorts and was jiggling around but it just turned out to be my junk which had gone almost completely numb. After that point I stopped riding on the aero bars

    Okay, best bike moment ever:

    So today at work it's just me, Phil and Dax still there at close. As we're locking up Dax drags his freeride bike downstairs, which I haven't had a chance to play on for awhile. So I take this thing outside and start ****ing around out in the back lot. There are some random cinder blocks there and about a 3-4' retaining wall held up by railroad ties/more cinder blocks/general rubble. A few minutes pass and then I hear, "OMG Mike that is the coolest bike EVAR!!!" It's of course the neighbourhood kids who are in the shop every single day with their beat to **** SuperCycles. If these guys lived in B.C. they'd probably be sponsored freeriders by now but of course they're stuck in dt toronto with bikes that are horrible. Sooo ... of course we set the 10-13 year olds loose on the 5" travel freeride bike and it's best day evar. Then of course we go back in for supplies: liquor, more bikes.

    Total bike count:

    - 5" travel freeride bike
    - 8" travel downhill bike
    - fixed gear bike w/ pursuit bars
    - 16" bmx bike w/ no brakes
    - 24" bmx bike

    So then two hours fly by and by the end of it half of us are bleeding, everyone's taken the downhill bike up/over/off the retaining wall, learned to bunny hop (1' junior record, 3.5' senior record) and do wheelies (contest called off after "from Queen up to Dundas and back" run). Slap a 12 year-old bike geek on a $6000 downhill bike and his head pretty much explodes with glee. Plus, slapping a little kid on a track bike with just stupid drop is always good for a laugh, "How the hell does your bike just balance like that? Dunno man, I guess it just does - here, you try. Oh God my nuts!"

    *siiigh*

    Plus, the booze helped too. Don't give kids 10% Faxe though.

    - Mike

    PS. Next week ... if you've got a fun bike, show up behind C.T. after close. Bring libations.

    eyefloater: great story. I'm totally into that.. in fact, that's the type of situation that makes me want to down a freeride/urban hardtail or a trials bike or something. Just messing around, hurting myself and drinking.

    So this is a little late...but....my ex wife had her Cramerotti track bike stolen on Wed. Candy apple red...red rims...Campy hubs and cranks....riser bars with streamers...no brakes. As much as she made my life miserable I would like to see her get it back. If anyone spots it I will give you a nice reward for recovery, or follow the guy and give me a call at the shop.

    Hrm, I saw one with a carbon fork parked in front of MEC on Thursday....cannot recall if it had streamers but they could have easily been removed. What size is it? A red Cramerotti track bike will totally stick in people's minds, maybe we can get it back.

    About a 54 or 55 cm. It had old school Campy cranks with the uber thick old style chainring on it.

    I know this probably isn't the place for it but I just want to post it up here first.
    I want to sell off my c-record tubular wheelset because I simply don't have the heart to ride it on the street and I never go to the track. (+ funding for university)
    [/my ad space]

    If a cramerotti shows up in scarborough. I'll be sure to shoot the person riding it. j/k

    That actually sounds like a downright good idea. Anybody else free? It's going to be so hot though that I will probably just want to ride around slowly, complaining about how hot it is. Haha.

    well, apart from starting at the same place, we were barely with the group at all. Some speedy girl kept up with us at the beginning for about 10-15 minutes and then rob got a flat and we were passed by pretty much everyone. Then we we were passing people too slow to ride with and the faster people were ahead of us getting further away. We didn't use the same turnaround point and took a different route back. Once we got onto warden we started to see dozens of non FFL roadies in helmets or not. They were as much a part of the FFL ride as us. Given that the ride to lake simcoe is very straight and simple theres alot of bikes on it so its kind of strange that rob got hassled so much for his helmet; there was no way to tell whether he was on the ride or not and I doubt the FFL riders had been hassling everybody training north of the city...

    hmmm .... well you know that Rob, trouble maker he is. That boy is BADD, stay clear Shizy!!!!! Sounds like a ****** caught your scent. Best just to avoid groups you're not with all together, unless your hunting them.
