    There's got to be a way to write-off part of that ... somehow, some way.

    Hummer H2 fuel capacity: 32 gallons (32 US gallons = 121.133178 litres)
    Lowest price of diesel in Toronto: 92.9 cents per litre
    Cost to fill up: $112.53
    Laughing at the ****** driving it: priceless.


    That's right, I'm trying REALLY hard not to get any work done today.

    oh hummer drivers aren't that bad: i had one the other day (with a license plate - GOLIATH) that told me i was "too pretty to argue with". well, at least he was paying attention!
    "Never do anything that you wouldn't want to have to explain to the paramedics."

    "His first words were 'did you bike today?' I hesitated before admitting that I had, thinking I was going to get a lecture on how bad the roads were and how I shouldn't try to bike home. Instead he said 'man, you're lucky! I've been sitting in traffic for over 1/2 hr, and I've only gone about 2 miles. Some guy on a bike passed me about 20 minutes ago and I'm sure he's home by now'."

    There were times when I was in California where I had to ride on the highways. They weren't bike lanes so much, but they were plenty wide, clean and separated by a rumble strip. I thought it was pretty safe, regardless of the crazy speeds people were passing at.

    Manitoba is another story. Take the same highway, put loose dirt to your right, and allow yourself 3 inches from the painted line to ride. Oh, don't forget the constant pot hole right down the line, as if the paint had destroyed the pavement. Beautiful.

    yep.. I still see a decent of cheap shows (not that $18.50 is too bad, but I've gone to a bunch of local stuff lately), but touring ain't cheap for an indie band so I'm willing to suck it up for a good show. Ditto for buying merch at shows. 100% funds straight to the band which is always nice on the road.

    See whoever at Cavern. I'm audi 5k.

    Weird bike... Looks fun suspension fork and all! Great description too. Maybe overpriced? It has mostly shimano 4400/4500 components (I checked cinelli website):

    I always hear about the show Fugazi did in Guelph @ the trash, way back a fan sent Ian a letter to come play & they did for like 5 bux a ticket or something like that. Crazy stuff. Minor Threat best H/C ever.

    I also must say I like bikes. That is all.
    Cheers

    yup, that's a limited edition cinelli cross bike. they used to have them in the window at la bicicletta when they were still on bloor street. cinelli released a mountain bike and a city bike in that same line. pretty slick but not easy to find or cheap.

    Long time lurker (to the Toronto fixed thread), first time poster - unfortunately, it's a bit off (fixed) topic.

    I was looking into doing a cycling trip from Vancouver->Whistler so I tried to find info on the "Sea to Sky Highway".. they've been doing improvements for the last little while in preparation for the Olympics. On their FAQ, I found the following info:

    6. Will I be able to cycle on the Sea-to-Sky Highway? What about cycling during construction?

    When complete, improved cycling access along the corridor will be provided by 1.5 metre shoulders protected by shoulder rumble strips through those sections of the corridor where improvements are being carried out.
    So - it sounds like such a thing does exist, and in a place I dream of riding..

    Mode of transmission varies enormously with location. Africa is primarily hetero sexual contact with large increases in intravenous drug use transmission in Easter Europe and Asia. A good recent summart is http://tinyurl.com/2gshg9. I can get the full article for you if you're interested.

    The big issues is that we don't have enough cyclists on the road. Bike safety increases with the number of cyclists. Bike lanes encourage cyclists to ride on the appropriate side of the road and help driver safety by making it easier to judge passing distances. We just don't have enough cyclists in the lanes to prevent them from being used as parking or alternate driving routes.

    As an aside, MEC has rain gear on sale (check they're site). I'm also debating a new pair of shoes, Dominators or Genius'. Apart from the weight, is there that much difference for stiffness. I do some long distance stuff, but mtb shoes seem more practical in general.
