We could all meet up at the Princes Gates and ride in together and then head off on the route...whatcha think?

    You do the 75 k route? I'd be up for that. We could get the folks on the board and the Toronto Fixed Group out for it...

    i usually just do the 50km route. The 75km route is just plain boring (just doing half the same loop again) We should totally get as many fixies together as possible, and maybe hit a bar/retaraunt for munchies afterwards!

    I'll come out to the stouffville rambler on Sunday if you're coming.

    So did you guys do the Sunday ride? I went out for the donut run-it was pretty hardcore. I ended up with the fast group sort of by accident. Huge group. Doing that ride with a fixed gear would have been very difficult, I don't think I would have been able to do it. Over all it was fun, but some of those guys take themselves a little too seriously-serious attitude. My legs were too wasted on Sunday to do another road ride, so I just did some trails and called it a day.

    Yeah, wasted_weasel and I did the TBN ride on Sunday. I crashed out somewhere midway. Won't be getting anywhere until I can replace the front fork/front rim.

    I passed by the Donut ride on the way to the start point at 401/Bayview. Seemed to be quite a few people.

    What size do you need? I've got a couple of steel 700C forks kicking around. You can have one if it helps. Wheels-not so good.

    ya it was a long friggen ride, I've never done that kind of distance before while trying to maintain that kind of speed.
    My legs were as tight as a drum by the end of the day....gotta remember to post stretch and keep moving rather than just flop down onto the couch and pass out.
    There was this one guy (wearing the green pull-over).... man he had endless energy, made me sad for myself considering he was easily twice my age, grey haired and probably close to retirement.

    I have 3 bikes. All 3 are broken. I have had no real mechanical problems for about 6 months and then BAM all 3 bikes break within about 5 days. Anyways, I need a new rear wheel (threads stripped right off my suzue basic), 2 new chainrings (the one you guys have seen, plus my new campy chainring which lost 2 teeth when my wheel shat out), and 2 new sets of cranks. So I have been riding my housemates 87 pound canadian tire girtl's mountain bike. Its like pulling teeth. Anyways... on the bright side, my grey bike is going to be ridiculously hot once the new parts come in.
    I'm biking across North America on the Internet!

    ahhh, le supercycle....



    I can't believe how much these bikes suck, they don't seem to last more than a few hundred km before they cease up and fall apart.

    That sucks. You must have pissed someone off in a past life or something. What are you going to build it up with this time?

Also riding fast along queen between spadina and university is a fun obstacle course of peds, doors, taxis and street car tracks
    Yes I did that run a few times and went so fast I could'nt see from my eyee's tearing it is fun to pass some of the cars

    So, how many of you have signed up for the Ride of Heart yet? I am going to sign up this weekend for the 50km route. Anyone up for maybe hitting East Side Marios or Jack Astors (both right around Front/York street) afterwards for lunch?

    i am a temporary ex-pat, living in the countryside of japan...am i allowed to post?? it's nice to read all about the joys of cycling back home...racing down mt. p, peds, navigating uni, autos, potholes, snow...oh joy! for now, i enjoy cherry blossoms, riding in the mountains and watching the ocean as i roll along the coast.

    oh yeah, i cannot forget to sent a shout to samhouston (you still riding with the mess or just doing undertheweather??)...you may guess, it's 323 that went to teach english in the land of the rising sun.

    everyone, take it easy and keep the rubberside down!

    I just have to confirm with my SO, but I should be registered by the weekend. I'm more of a C'est What kind of person, but I could probably stick around for eats and brews afterwards...
