    I finished at the back end of the pack but not last. Got some good helmet cam footage, unfortunately it turned off due to jostling but live and learn. Were going to tape again for the poker ride.

    Keith I heard about your flat. That blows hard. I wish I had gone to the CNE first. I had a tube on me that would have had your name on it. My route sucked but again live and learn. Colin I called you Craig 'cause I'm stupid. Apologies. Props to all who were there, especially those faster then me. I'll have youtube vidz up and some dvds if anyone cares in a couple of days.

    well, if it makes you feel any better i was shivering from standing waiting so long. would have liked to have seen the start, but the finish was amusing. should have done a couple laps to stay warm or played tech support and run down to the cne with my patch kit...

    "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'."

    Whoa! Check out this chain ring. It's like an exaggerated biopace. Super weird. Spotted at Spadina and Sussex.

    Wow, that's oval. MDT, Osymetric and highpath make oval rings, but that looks interesting. What brand of bike was it?

    it was good to see some faces that are getting more and more familiar! i'm still tasting the shot of bacardi 151 from the first checkpoint(nasty). sorry to hear about your flat, Keith, especially coming out of retirement and all! girls that ride bikes make me drool. last and definitely least, for some reason every bike related party i go to there is a near fist fight close to the end. why? i left high school a long time ago. other than that, good times!

    Couldn't tell (or didn't notice). It was a pretty rough beater as you can see.

    Stoked I didn't finish dead last - dead middle suited me just fine. Great to meet you Offhoff - can't wait to see the video - and good seeing Colin again. Lame about the flat Keith. I totally had spare gear. Way too much fun and I'm definitely in Saturday and again in... April (I forget the date now)? Everyone was impressively fast. Must sleep now.

    Sounds like y'alls had fun at the race.. I'm sorry I missed it. I ran late running errands/eating supper/etc so I couldn't make it out.

    Keith: what's the word for mtn biking on sunday? I have band #2 practice on Sunday at 2pm as we have a show coming up during the Images Festival. If we don't do mtn biking I'm gonna go do a road ride with Dave (but I'd prefer mtn biking!).

    *cough* scotch night *cough*

    Nothing cures the rainy day blues better!

    I also think we should get a gang together and hit Ematei sometime and pretend we're Japanese salary slaves.

    Ematai is on the upper tier of japanese in the city IMO. Nowhere near as good as Sushi Marche though.

    Indeed, only got the first bit on video then the jostling hit the record button unfortunately but live and learn. With what we shot on HD we should get a nice 3 minute video.

    Music suggestions are welcome if anyone has an opinion
