    What were those electronic tones... power-ups ?

    Conditions were tricky Friday, flooding and got smoked in the head by a flying pop-can! Wind was blowing hard enough for my loose helmet strap ends to lash me in the face but good(96km/h gusts)! Should cut those things. Plus I was on a wagon-wheel 700c... giant sails... 26" much better in wind!

    btw, studded tires FTW... haha, you should see what a skating rink the local trail is!!

    Yes, there are a few areas of foot-path here where people trudged through slush, now frozen solid ice.. barely rideable on studs, probably not even very walkable!

    I would love to do the Bolton to Albion Hills river ride again. Its been 2 years since the last epic ride with BMBC. This requires perfect conditions and cold temps to set the ice.

    Yesterday's ride was quite a challenge... thrills and spills!

    Pardon my ignorance, but are there trails in place to do that ride in the summer if you wanted to? I'd bet it would be a pretty amazing ride, if possible.

    they will never allow bikes on that trail, i've done a little bit of chainsaw work for them anyway when they ask for help since i'm the only local qualified person (otherwise they have to get the trca/caledon/bta members/or pay someone)

    the ccc is trying with a seperate trail but there are many challenges like bridges/funding.

    Cycling culture (if that video can be considered part of it) in South Korea is a whole other world. Each kind of folding bike has it's own club in Seoul and Sevens are as common as Treks here. It is unique to say the least...
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    Yes, I do find that Asians often take mundane activities to another level. Can be funny, can be ridiculous, can be outrageous ... but never boring! Better than sitting on the couch getting fat!
