    yeah $5 buy in, just enough so people care without really caring. Its more of an excuse to get together drink, smoke, eat and talk bikes without feeling like bike nerds.

    Ya, I hope so. I'm looking forward to riding down Harbord every day. That seems like a nice street to commute on. Plus, I'll get to do one of my favourite little bits in the city: the downhill University Avenue time trial to Queen Street.

Either way, welcome to the neighborhood. Now in the same little area we have myself, shiznaz, dom and you. If only Keith hadn't abandoned us.. :'(

    ps. thank goodness for rain gear! What a fun ride in this morning.

    Hahaha Oh man am I wet.

    Rain gear is great and all, but when you ride through a puddle that goes up above your ankle, you're gettin' a soaker. Watch out for a lake forming on the west side of shaw at the intersection of dundas! I don't think any kind of booties would have kept my feet dry this time!

    I had at least 8 people from work call me crazy so far, and one called me idiotic, but he's always kind of a jerk.

    Still it was fun!

    In other news: Keeping a fresh, clean, brand new pair of socks at work is a good idea. My feet are toasty!

    The only thing better than commuting in the rain in full rain gear (I'm totally dry except my hair) is mountain biking in a downpour (assuming you don't have peanut butter mud to contend with).

    I hear that Shizy, at one point I had visibility of about 6 feet near Jarvis when it opened up gor a couple minutes. I can't find my booties....so only my feet were wet, extra socks as well...baby. People are looking at my helmet and just shaking their heads as they head to their desks. Odd because they are all late, having driven, safe and dry from the rain. Hmmmm

    oh, also I have to put my love of cycling hats out there again. I was converted after wearing one the whole way to Montreal, and now I can't imagine riding in the rain without one. Without a helmet cover my head still gets soaked, but the brim keeps the rain out of my eyes nicely, especially in heavy rain like this morning.

    I need to get mini-windscreen wipers for my shades. When I wipe the water off with my hands it just gets dirty and streaky.

    Booties rock my world in a big, bad, hairy-assed way. My socks are actually still dry, and I don't even have a front fender.

    The old Gore-Tex aint as waterproof as it once was but still kept my body reasonably dry on the ride in. feet I dont even worry about until the cold weather starts, then its flat pedals and Sorels ftw. On a sad note the assclown who hammered thru the massive puddle next to me, not only soaked me thoroughly, but killed the AC/DC cranking from the radio. I hope it dries out

    You were shading in today? You're my hero. I've simply learned to stop wiping my glasses, nothing helps. Some of those moto style gloves have goggle squeegees on the thumbs. Killed your tunes?....of course you know...this means war. My booties were/are nylon and I love them, awesome in the winter as well. As long as my riding wasn't too too long I didn't need winter shoes/boots.

    Has anyone tried these? I may just go back to MEC and get another set of what I had before but wouldn't mind something a bit warmer. I felt like I was going to lose little piggies at the Ice Races last winter. I don't think they are water proof, I'm wondering how the fabric might hold up to daily slushing/salting.
