ahh.. cool. I was wondering if it was someone we knew or not!

I rode for the first time in over 3 weeks this morning. I figured I'd give myself nearly 3 weeks of healing since I broke my rib before I got back on again. Didn't bother me much (except for my lunch jabbing me right there from my bag), but man I feel like a sack of **** in the saddle after being away even for only a few weeks!

Hey, where do you guys get your buns? I was looking for this restaurant I heard about on the CBC a few months back, I believe it is called Mothers, or something like that-but I can't find it. I think it is around kensington mkt. somewhere. I've tried the place across from Swatow on spadina, what else is good?

somnambulant, is that your urbanite?
Mother's Dumplings is pretty damn cheap, pretty much the same prices for all hong kong styled cafe's. 5-6 bucks for a full meal and drink.
If your real stinge try going to most chinese bakeries and pick up 6 buns for 3 bucks.
also, you guys should try Korean BBQ if your not vegetarian.
I live in scarborough so I am absolutely CLUELESS about dt.

In the spring you guys should take me on a sightseeing tour of downtown.

See, there's some days you post something... look at it and think, "there's an easy lob, but who would be lowbrow enough to take it"....

DM - we often get our buns at Kim Moon bakery on Dundas.

i haven't been so regular myself lately.. as for snow, it's been really bad in parts of northern japan (we're talking about 2 meters of snow) like akita and niigata. lot of older houses collapsing under the weight and killing people, mostly seniors. a lot of train service disruptions too. but it hasn't been too bad in the rest of japan (tokyo, osaka, kyushu region). it's been chilly with only a few patches of sun. it was really warm in shizuoka (smack dab between osaka and tokyo) the other day though. they've got a nice keirin track there but everything has been closed the last 2 days for a national holiday.

Side note: I'm watching the debate (streamed off the CBC site) right now and if I hear "accountability" one more time I'm going to ****ing scream. It's Canada's "Now, more than ever ..."

They were on the board for a bit and had a website with some of their group rides before, apparently, one of them bought a smart car. His handle was Aerofix and the group used to do monthly fixed rides. I was going to go to one and decided to sleep in instead.

Some of the names that I recall were Jeremy Whitehorn, Alan Thwaits and I think Phil Piltch.

yes shiznaz did ride with us once i think last year but i think i scared him off with a crazy pace; we should take 2 on that one...

you can get buns in the buns/bakery shop on spadina between queen st and dundas/college.

also a very good buns/dimsum place, all they do is takeout/standing room only, on baldwin st. east of beverley, just south of u of toronto.
