This bodes well for the less sober snow ride. Wear you some helmets, ya'll!

for place, as long as no one objects, should be the parking lot behind Honest Ed's (Bathurst & Bloor) as per usual a la Critical Vacuum.

For time, 8 or 9 is good for me.

Ooh, ooh, I'm SO down for this! Please keep me informed if you're going to the track. I really want to go. Since we're out-of-towners, I believe they'll combine class #1 and #2 into the same session as long as you book it in advance.

Can you ride conversions there? with clips?

Doesn't matter anyway cuz I don't have a helmet.

you can rent everything there, minus shoes and pedals. Not sure about helmets, though. You might need to bring your own. I guess that means you can only rent track bikes, then.

Anytime after 8 works for me, closer to 8:30 is better, but whatever.

Cam, either fork is yours for the taking.

OK, I'm going out on a limb here, but here it goes:

Toronto Fixed Snow Ride
Meet: Parking lot behind Honest Ed's (Bathurst & Bloor)
Time: 8:45pm (Monday Jan. 15)
We leave at 9pm sharp!


If anyone has a problem with that, we can change...got it?!

P.S. It's called the Toronto Fixed snow ride, but you can ride your SS or geared bike. It's just a title. I'm on my slow SS Mountain Bike. Bring Drink if you wish.

Since your red lettering was so persuasive, I'm down for those arrangements. I'll be there. YEOwww.

Ok cool! Well if this weekend doesn't work out, like if it isn't enough notice to book or if people can't go we can defintely do it another time.

Shamil (did I spell your name right? if not sorry ) if we did another weekend would that be better for you?

Tovi and Lymbzero are you guys going to the snow ride tomorrow? If so we can discuss it more then.

I think a couple of people from work want to go as well, I'll ask tomorrow. I hope you guys don't mind sharing the track with *gasp* messengers.

I hadn't ridden fixed in two weeks (broke the Pake down to cannibalize parts for the gf's Crosscheck). Then today, I finish wrapping the bars on one of our entry-level fg offerings and hop on for a sec. All of a sudden I can no-hands trackstand like it's nothing. What the hell. Never been able to do that before, not even close.

I guess unless it looks like a damn beach party out there. If it doesn't snow, I'll just ride my fixie instead, but I'm still down for an outing.

Yeah, the main roads are slushy, but totally rideable. The side streets are a bit of a menace though. Markham was unbroken crust (just a pain to ride through) and Huron had hidden ice chunks/ruts under the crust/slush (nearly took me out a few times).
