    5 hours notice ain' enough...?! hmmm, I understand completely.

    Well, here's 28 hours notice;

    Jet Fuel Alleycat, 20th yadda yadda yadda. Meet at Jet Fuel 519 Parliament, race begins 8pm, racers should arrive 7pm to be certain of registration etc.

    Checkpoint people are wanted, needed, loved, abused and discarded but not necessarily in that order. There are 20 checkpoints! So if the thought of 20 (complex) checkpoints takes the race right out of you come be a checkpoint person! Experienced get thier own checkpoint, inexperienced get to team up as needed/wanted. Fun gauranteed, standing in the wind & possibly snow! For hours maybe! Yeah baby. Then back to Jet Fuel for a rippin helloween party.

    Checkpoint people need to arrive 6pmish at Jet Fuel. Desina is volunteer coordinator, if you don't know Desina conact via UTW news page. Showing up counts as perfect, no previous contact really required.

    Speaking of races, though I'm not sure it's been announced officially yet I can't seem to care, it's official, Toronto will be hosting the 2008 CMWC! We're going to make it the biggest, baddest, funnest CMWC yet, & that's sayin something!

    Uh-oh. go train service suspended this afternoon. That means I lane split between stationary cars from Bay almost all the way to Bathurst. Going north on Bay would probably be just as bad.

    Whats university like heading north during rush hour? I figure maybe university north, and then harbord west would be the best option on days like today.

    University is brutal, do beverly to harbord and harbord across, even with the construction on beverly its fast. Huron is good too, smooth pavement.

    I want to be able to walk to many places and be out and about, I was looking at Queen's Park or Old Toronto? I am not sure, as this is from a Fodor's guide.

    If you suggest any hotels please let me know, many Thanks ...
    not sure what's considered "Old Toronto"? Queens park is very central, not very neighbourhood-y. i'd say the suggestion of kensington is very apt, very cool place, lots of indy coffee shops, great cheap places to eat etc. i live in parkdale; it's in the west end but walk to everything from wherever you stay. if you feel like ponying up some dough the drake is a great hotel experience. other than that a hostel is a great idea.

    PS - Cam, nice seeing you this aft.

    Yes, good seeing you too, i wish I had more time to get out and ride with you guys. It was also nice to see Audrey Tautou vacuuming the coffee roaster. The alleycat looks like fun too, but I'm a workin'.

    Times like this I wish I had a nice geared rig, maybe a 52 up front and a good 8 speed cassette in the back. I'd love to race tomorrow but with just my fixed whip I don't stand a chance.

    Maybe its time to think about a bike with gears again.

    dang, you guys are having FUN! I still check up on the toronto thread when I have time.
    oh man, I got completely crushed by my midterms which means I gotta study harder.

    My biking goal is to ride through the winter on the gt.
    I checked and I def. don't have enough clearance to put on some knobbies.

    anyone have experience on riding throughout winter on road slicks?
    physics hertz.

    toronto streets aren't too bad, mostly just slush so thin tires cut through the nasty stuff. if you can fit 700 x 27 or 28 then vittoria makes a cross tire that's a knobby that works well in the winter.

    Good ****ing game. I get home and THEN shiznaz tells me there's delays from GO. I almost had a free trip to Georgetown instead of home. Luckily I was drunk enough to ask the lady next to me where the **** this train was going before the doors closed.

    ****ing go transti.

    I also got sidewswiped going across Front st. by some asshat in some motor vehicle. Luckily I was not hurt, hopefully I scratched the hell out of their 2 doors and broke their side mirror.

    I know that Cinelli capped face.
    A representative from both fixed gear wannabe messenger camps is indeed needed.

    The guy with the blond hair and glasses, wearing a blue Campagnolo cap in one pic is Tristan, he works at Urbane. Super nice guy. He's helped me with lots of stuff, especially when I was a total noob asking lots of annoying questions. The other guys don't really look familiar to me.
