Crazy day running around with Toby picking up all the prizing for the race tonight. Should be lots of fun. If you're not doing anything, remember:

So what in fact is "the dilly" for tonight? Open race, any other events? The Tosca's back on the road (omfgyay!) so I might head out.

that was a nice vid, I only watched cause I had no idea what a cable shot was. I quickly figured it out though. The log...

If you wanted a ride destination tonught, 850 Dundas West The Press Room 6pm, drawing around 7-8 or so, hope you all came drop in. Tickets on sale online til 4pm or so, on sale at the bar b4 the drawing. I totally skipped a groove on Tobys race, had intended to go down and get a video of the start, maybe roll to the finish, but a CMWC meeting and a beer visit with the landlord put my head in a different space and the next I knew it was midnight.

I'm sorry to hear that. Might as well report it. Couldn't hurt I'd say. Are you okay?

Not reporting is not an option. Glad you're ok

Thanks for use of the pump and thanks to Keith for the tips... I've changed a lot of tires in my day but never even thought of using the schrader / presta adapter as an extender. Sean was happy to be able to continue riding for the night after his spill...

I didn't get many great photos but I uploaded what I did get in the wee hours of the morning HERE

Sounds like a fun time was had! Too bad I missed it...

Today I went riding somewhere I'd never been before- mimico creek valley loop (up the humber and across Eglinton to the 427 and then south and back across to old mill and south on humber again.)

It's a fun ride and the bike path along eg is a superspeedway Kind of a short loop though.

agreed - that section of the city (mimico beach) is really nice. i went riding through there on the way home from mississagua one time and really enjoyed it. isn't there a brewery somewhere along there (perhaps on missisagua road)? sorry, i can't remember where exactly, i'm a bit drunk.

PS - Cam, i hate you a little bit for finding an espresso maker of that quality at a yard sale. i have an ice cream maker my parents bought me in my basement that i'd love to trade for an espresso machine.

We never actually went down all the way to the lake along mimico:

https://www.stridemaps.com/maps/view/97

Mimico beach is where we went for the ride of (no) destruction a while back though (I think? It's where the creek meets the lake though so makes sense), it is definitely nice along there.

Not sure about the brewery... I do remember seeing a brewery while out riding recently, but I think it was way up on king road so obviously not the one you're thinking of) Out at 427/Eg is the big labbats or whatever it is too.

Jeremy or anyone else who has done the hairshirt- what's a nice 80km stretch along the lakeshore? I want to do a century along the lake this week but I'm thinking perhaps taking the GO out a ways before starting. Also, anyone want to join me? Not sure what day it'll be, but it will be during the daytime.

the brewery is rear the lakeshore on missisagua rd. forget the name... if you want to do a nice century i have a nice route archived that runs from mississagua to glen williams. much more interersting terrain that the service road from hamilton...

yes, i've done the hairshirt twice; it doesn't get interesting until you get past vineland.

I'm sure that Curbside has them - you also might want to try La Carerra?
