Actually I love the dogs... They look so happy and care-free.

Jeremy, it's a bianchi logo. You can get stickers or T-shirts at Bianchi's site

Nice pic, I have a Canon SD400 and I can never take shots like this, what settings do you use? I saw the same thing and thought how nice it looked but I can never take a decent photo.

I was thinking of riding around the beaches/donlands area. Maybe check out the spit on my new fat tires. I'll probably head out in about 45mins to an hour (gotta prepare my safety accessories)

you should have gone yesterday when I went . I can't today but if your going to the leslie street spit look to the left of the second gate , it is just after the weigh in station, on the left hand side after the gate you'll see a very narrow trail you can take that trail with your bike and follow it through the bush and tree's, it is nothing wild but it tests your balance and eyesite in alot of area's , the trail turns into other ones that will take you along the big rocks and beach area's.. also when you get to the light house facing south look to the left facing east and you'll see another old service road that you can really bomb along the edge of the water,, the light house has some steep drops too if you want to try them

There's lots of "secret" trails out near the end on the East side too. Some nice overlooks on the lake. I might head out to the spit today too but I'll be staying on the pavement 'cause I want to get some last time in on my road bike before the snow gets here

What time were you out last night Steeker? I almost went out to the spit last night ~11:30 but decided I wanted some hills instead so I headed North and West.

I was out in the afternoon yesterday ,,,,,,,,your right about the east side of the spit trails too , next time I am going to ride the west trails out to the light house and use the old service road to connect to the east trails,, there is another set of small trails that connect from uwinstreet by the hydro bridge

alright.. I'm gonna go for a spin and maybe grab a coffee someplace. If anyone wants to join me just give me a call at 5349862. I'm either going to hit ideal or Balzac's most likely. Depends on where I go and how cold I am.
