    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!

    I agree. I can't wait for the snow to melt.

    Wonder if there will be any more river riding?

    The island music helps a little bit.

    Trails here are sucky right now. 1 cm of loose snow on top of an inch of ice. Yikes!

    Motorists were having meltdowns at the gas pumps last evening and this morning!

    I'm lucky to drive a Prius. The alternative for me is not so convenient (Go bus, bike, etc)

    One of my favourite things about riding along the Han (aside from the amazing bike paths) is the small "bike shops in a truck" that park under bridges. Tons of people hang out there and they sell everything from service to sweat pants!

    FYI, not that I can confirm, but if there is something more homoerotic than a sausage suit, it's probably a sausage suit with gems allover it!

    The only way it could get better is if he flew off the stage.

    I suggest we all strongly consider putting all this trail riding crap to rest. Too complicated. This is way better.

    I was thinking about these vids while I was on the trainer this afternoon.

    I thought maybe attempting some of those 'stunts' would make riding the trainer a little more bearable but i don't think I'd ever forgive myself....and if my gf ever walked in on me trying I'd NEVER live it down.

    Don't do it.. you've got too much to live for. At least bolt your trainer to the floor and lock that door! Maybe you should just get a rainjacket, fenders and head outside before you do something stupid.
