Cars seem to be avoiding the curb lane like the plaque. I was centred all the way home....parked cars were a dangerous obstacle though. I am guilty of some sidewalk riding today

Oh man it's getting worse and worse out there...

I just walked to get a tea and cars were having trouble getting up parliment, and it's hardly a hill. hahaa, some other guy and I had to help push him.

I am actually glad that I rode my bike in to work today, getting anywhere on the TTC right now must suck, unless you are right at the subway.

I get off work at 7 so it will be dark, should be a fun ride.

Thanks I had good luck heading home. Except for my bottom bracket which came loose somehow and starting moving so I had to do a pit stop at urbane for a lockring wrenching. Traffic was backed up really badly on beverley and on harbord.

I love them!

Yesterday I saw two people with Deep V's.
Yellow and blue.

Thems' people like to be flashy.
They had matching clothes, bike parts and accessories.
Try hard much?

Yours however are nice.

March Break? I'm moving to China!

method man: tical
ol' dirty bastard: return to the 36 chambers, the dirty version
wu-tang: enter the 36 chambers
madvillain: madvillainy
viktor vaughn: vaudville villain
mobb deep: the infamous (amoung others, but if you only want one album, get this one)
outkast: Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, ATLiens, Aquemini, after that andre went crazy and the music suffered)
Soundbombing part 2
O.G.C.: da storm
heltah skeltah: magnum force
smif-n-wessun: dah shinin
prince paul:a prince amoung thieves

that should at least get you started.

Well. I went up to Avenue and Lawrence then accross to Bayview and back downtown once when it was still dry no problem. Then I went back up, this time to Yonge and Lawrence and accross to Bayview between 3:30 and 5:15 because it actually took that long to get there. It was ****ing nuts! There was a tractor trailer stuck on the hill up Yonge to St. Clair so there were no cars up there for a while! I ended up taking the subway back down because I wanted to get home before 8 (I still had to go back to base first). What a day.

I totally lost it on some guy today too on Yonge. I was riding in front of him in total gridlock so no one was going anywhere fast and he just started honking at me. I had been in a really good mood but by this time it was beginning to deteriorate and this guy seemed like a ******bag. I turned around and said "was that directed at me?? Was that directed at me??!! Because YOU can kiss my ass!" Strangely he apologized. I don't condone this kind of behaviour at all but we all lose it sometimes I guess. It was kind of funny I suppose. I'm just glad he didn't I don't know kill me or something.

Baby...

I ended up walking most of the way home. Cagers hugging the shoulder, gridlocked and driving in the Dundas bike lane. S'okay though cause I was still passing 'em.

Boohoo yeah guys your 15 minute commute must have been SO hard .

edit: just kidding it was ridiculous out there. You know how on the weather reports they always say the roads will be bad but they usually really aren't (well the main roads anyway). Well today was different. It actually was that bad. Crazy stuff.
