Well, a nice ride a couple of days ago seems to have been my "swan song" for this year here in Toronto...I hope you guys in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and all points directly south are having better luck on this crappy Saturday.

Weather is dryer today than yesterday but still cold.

If you look closely at your pic, you can see clear patches of asphalt. (Where cages were parked) If you were to limit your riding distance to...

Dean,

Yea Toronto is DEPRESSING today.
Where in town are you, sometimes a beer and bike talk can help.

We don't have any snow but have had some nights in the 20 degree range. It was up in the 40ies yesterday and I was able to get in a good ride once I got out of my driveway.
They are putting in a 6 foot water line in front of my house and have spread that good old carolina red clay all over my yard and driveway. Then it rained so getting out of driveway in bike was not fun or neat. Hope they get it done soon. They are calling for more rain Wen. (my next day off) but the temperature should be in the high 50ies.

Hi Gord:

Toronto was depressing yesterday, and it is today. It's always tempting to get on the bike; go for a ride; and spray the salt off...but is it really worth the momentary rush that you get either riding where it has been salted, or, in Stretrod48's case, braving the beautiful red clay for a quick adrenalin flow...incidentally, my apartment can be seen from 17 miles up (compliments of Google Earth) on what was probably a sunnier day than this.

No question A.T.G.A.T.T. (Even when it's stinking hot!!)
And if it's too stinking hot to gear up, it's too stinking hot to ride.

If your not man enough to take the lead, stop complaining from behind.
