edit: TJ, yes to the gears. No need to have two extremely similar rides, and the Gardin build-up was meant to be more of a learning experience than anything else. Now to learn about "dee-rale-errs".

WOW several peeps back to school tomorrow. But if you’re a working stiff riding through school zones like me (Cosburn & Coxwell) watch out for all the doors.

Frosh week try not to get painted blue or something crazy like that!
Cheers

So....in light of possibly moving to Rochester in a year, is there a reliable and fairly painless way of getting to and from Toronto from Rochester? I understand the ferry service got culled a couple years ago...

The ferry service has been an on again, off again thing. I thought they were giving it another try this year but I could be wrong. Maybe get chummy with the local cigarette runners? Driving is a *****....thats a perpetually busy stretch of highway.

Global Gutz is scheduled to happen Sat at 5 p.m. I have recieved some criticism and grief from some locals about the organization and am seriously reconsidering my involvement. I just love to put in my scarce spare time and effort to throw a race for people who don't seem to appreciate it. I am gonna talk with a few folks about it and we will see. As of this second I am out but that could change.

Oy. I had totally forgotten until I left my house. Kids everywhere! But you know what? Dodging them on my bike beats having to get crammed onto a subway car with them any day.

Race drama = lame. Don't sweat the soap opera, C.Mech.

PS. I just realized I'm going to be out of town this weekend anyway ("camping" trip).

You had a freewheel on it last Winter, didn't you? I seem to remember you having one on there with a set of riser bars too.

Yeah, that was when I was healing from broken ribs. I set my bike up old man style....that was kind of fun too. Now I have no excuse (except that I'm an old man?). I took the SS IRO on the donut ride 52x16, and it was fine, no problem. Kind of amazing how little all those gears help.

dude.. you're a damn machine. seriously. I really need to give the donut a try. If you can do it on a 52x16 SS, then I should be able to manage on my road bike (I hope).
