I've officially geared down my ride for tonight. I'm going straight up 2:1. Hope I'm not the slow kid in class.

ok, I'm coming tonight. I've got this meeting at the Reference Library from 7-9, so I'll just leave a little early, so I can meet you all at 9.

i've kinda made it a policy to not ride the first major snowfall of the season. people are just too unprepared. especially since it's a monday.
so i took transit. a >10 min ride = 30 min on the streetcar. argh.
on the way home i was given a token, but steps out of the building i ran into a friend that is a courier. oh the shame! then i took one look at the sardines packed into the streetcar and opted to walk instead. was very glad for the proper hiking boots, coat etc i wore.

Whew I don't know if I'm up for the ride tonight guys. My knee is kinda sore and after working 8 hours in this stuff I've kind of had my fill of snow riding. I might show up and then just not do the whole thing. I haven't decided yet. Just givin' a heads up.

So far for London I'm assuming these are the people that want to go:

Me, Duppy, Tovi, Lymbzero(?), Dr. Benway, Offhoff

If I got a car, I would be able to fit 4 passengers as long as someone didn't mind sitting in the middle in the back seat.

It doesn't have to be this weekend, actually it might be better for it to be another weekend for me and maybe that might be better for you too Shamil (I probably mispelled your name again sorry). Would the 27th better than the 20th for any of you guys? Anyone else want to go?

Due to unforseen circumstances, I'm bailing on tonight's ride. I had this thing at 7PM tonight, so I went by Bloor/Spadina to pick up my bike lock (I leave it locked to the post-and-rings by itself) en route to the Ref. Lib., but my lock is FROZEN!! I couldn't get it to unlock, so I really had no choice but to ditch the meeting and come back home. F*ck, I'm so annoyed. I really have nothing to do in town b/w 7 and 9, so I'm ditching the ride with you guys, too. Sorry.

On a brighter note, it's a helluva lot of fun out there right now. Find some quiet roads and you'll be sliding all over the place! Wee! And cars are being super patient and careful in passing me, which is nice to see.
Enjoy yourselves out there!!

D'oh I'm such a dork. I go to MEC to buy a portable coffee grinder and a rack for my MTB. I leave the grinder at the store after buying it, and the rack is too small. Awesome!

I'm suiting up. This is going to be awesome. I look like a sugoi model, only lamer.

I've even strapped on my big double halogen front light with the big bottle holder battery.

See you guys at quarter to 9
