You'll have to clue me in to the good eats places near U of T. As it turned out, I had to jet and rob had to run up to some store that sold him a 3/32 cog instead of a 1/8 one.

As a ps, I *really* hate street car tracks. And slow moving big ass trucks that hog the right lane necessitating crossing street car tracks at shallow angles at speed. And I hate asphalt.

nope.. combo = level 2+3.

I think a good idea might be this:

-get a group of people together who want to do the combo AND the people who missed track 1
-everyone go out together on a saturday when there's racing
-track combo people do 2+3 in the morning
-track intro people do that in the afternoon
-everyone hang out and watch the races in the evening

I'm not sure who missed out on track 1 that want to go, however. Traffic Jammer + Ronin? Anyone else?

The race calendar is available here: http://www.forestcityvelodrome.ca/racecalendar.html. Looks like there are races every Saturday all through October, and for the first 3 weekends in November (including Worldcup trials on Nov 4).

If there's any interest in this it might be a good idea to start a seperate thread just because this one moves along a little fast to keep track of stuff directly relating to the trip.
