Have they posted the course already? Or do you just mean 21 flat kilometres with 5 checkpoints and no way to take shortcuts?

I'd never get off the thing. It looks like it creates a symbiotic relationship with your nervous system. Catching that fairing would suck large.

The idea behind laying the course out is that it's virtually impossible to shortcut it. I think Keith slapped down a nice course after speaking with him last night. More... I cannot tell you. It wouldn't be fair. Looking forward to some nice shots hopefully. I can see me getting into this photography thing since getting this camera from my father-in-law..... i'm likin' it

The course distance is done in such a way that shortcuts per say are out. The shortest way is not always the fastest way tho.

Though a flash for it and powerpack might be in order

Oh yeah....there will be no posting of the course. Alleycat races are a think on the go type thing. You will find out each new destination as you go. That being said there will be no trickery or hard to find spots.

Still probably around 6:30-ish. However long it takes me to ride home then drive to etobicoke and ride back during rush hour.

edit: assuming I can even still fit my fixie in the trunk since I can't get the seatpost down/out still. heheheh.

yeah, it fits if I take off both wheels, but it's annoying to have to re-tension the back wheel (especially since I just cleaned/lubed my chain and had the back wheel off just last night).

That situation could be cleared up so easily! You can get totally screwed on maortgages though...

Oh yeah, I got my defrauded money back and it seems like they gave me an extra 200 bucks (but I may just be wrong). Plus I'm moved in and had a great camping trip. Unfortunately today was spent entirely in the board room... So tiring but you totally cannot take a nap. I've got a 9:15er tomorrow morning and my coworker is afraid I'm going to be late for it because I usually get into work between 9:00 and 9:15. Shes probably right but I'm pretty sure I can show up 10 minutes earlier.

You won't be able to buy them....but your laminator friend might have them.
Top and bottom laminate....turn it on add the cards one at a time... trim and all set.
Call your laminator friend, depends on the machine. I used to use a machine with 72 inch wide rolls of laminate.
