    Creek ride with veteran_youth

    Finally met up with veteran_youth and one of his friends today and took them on a tour of my local creek trails. I can't believe they rode all the way here from downtown and then all the way back after the ride. I was tired by the time I got home and I live 5 minutes from the trails. Anyway, a few photos from the ride.


    Downhill into a rock garden. Unfortunately I couldn't show the rock garden part unless I stood on the trail and got run over.





    This one's not from today's ride but it's the same trail, gotta get myself in the mix



    And it's hereby proven that neither platform pedals, lowered seats, nor full suspension are required for getting airtime and riding TTFs



    We had a great ride, no trees were killed, and we're still not entirely sure what a giant hogweed looks like.

    Thanks again for the tour Aerius! I just awoke from a 3 hour nap.....my garmin read almost 70km by the time I got home. Poor Jake...he said he didn't mind 'exploring' a little bit on the ride back, and so many dead-end off-road ravine trails were followed up Mimico Creek. (maybe it was revenge for making me try to hang on to his wheel at close to 50km/h on lakeshore...i had to get him to slow down somehow!)

    I had just over 30km and 2 hours on my bike computer when I got home, the headwind on the way back sucked. Other than that we were blessed with good weather and the recent rain really helped with trail conditions. Last week it was getting way too dry & dusty in there, some parts were unridable with my tires just sliding on the loose dirt like it was snow.

    As for Mimico Creek there's not much there, just a couple short stretches between Rathburn & Eglinton along with a set of dirtjumps that got torn down & flattened last year. It might've been rebuilt but I haven't checked it out this year. Note to self - check it out this week.

    pffft...

    this is obviously unpossible without platforms and red Intense 15" travel bike. Not to mention that your trail is obviously not progressive.

    Great photoshop work kid.

    Can't fool me.

    I won't lie to you, the only plants I can positively identify are maple, cedar and marijuana.

    Classy response SS! I am guessing the 'bitterness' tag was you too. Well, I am glad you have responded, so I can show you that this ride was borne not out of bitterness but out of an ability to step out of a petty argument and look at the bigger picture. Maybe you can try to do the same someday!

    This has been on my mind for about a week so I figured I should probably say something even though it is really insignificant in the grand scheme of things. I have not even looked at that thread since the my last response to you; I later saw from the main forum page that Osokolo responded too, and anytime Osokolo and singlesprocket are responding to the same thread, I have found that usually there is nothing good that can come out of it again. Also I was on a riding vacation and decided I didn't really want to sacrifice any more personal relaxation to internet arguments.

    Anyway, my responses in that thread arose from a personal opinion about 'need' and cycling, and general annoyance with singlesprocket's claims of 'needing' things like big travel, 68 deg. HT angles, drop posts, flat pedals etc. I got so wound up attempting to keep arguing this point that I continued to hold my line even when you posted your pics, when in fact what you were doing on a friggin' 15 year old steel XC hardtail is exactly the type of stuff that I was attempting to argue that most riders do not 'need' all this new fangled technology to do.

    I really want nothing else to do with that thread, and have no interest in anything said in the 30-odd posts since I last checked in. But I did want to let you know that I think that the riding you are doing on that old bike is exceptional (especially if you are hitting that big gap!), and that when I said "most everything" can be ridden with full seat height you are probably setting an example of the small %age of stuff that cannot be. If you care to go back in and repost this PM though feel free (but please post in it's entirity if you choose to do that).

    And I was serious about my ride offer too. We'll see if we can maybe even get Terry out too once the weather turns.

    Cheers,
    Andrew
    And now, since both Oggie and SS have responded in this thread, by my own calculations there is no good that can come out of it. Lock 'er up, mods!

    before mods lock 'er up

    by MY calculation, the good has been achieved just by posting the post....

    As aerius pointed out - one does not need gimmicks with 6" travel and lowered seat posts to enjoy biking including TTFs etc... that is the "goodness" and that is the reason for "bitterness"...

    Out of curiosity, if I stop responding to threads that SS posts in - will you post more?

    I don't mind doing that for you at all... Seriously...

    now now don't make assumptions... i did not post the tag "bitterness"...

    your views are hypocritical in nature...

    the above participants like to dish it out (look at tags below, look at the op, look at past posts/threads, bans, etc), but respond like bullies when it is directed back at them. i'm rather disappointed in you andrew, either you are just plain ignorant of the games going on here or you support this type of behavoir. look at the big picture yourself

    The big picture as I see it: There are some very vocal and prolific posters on this board, who at times can dominate threads without necessarily adding value (i.e. useful information) from the perspective of an unbiased reader. There are no bullies, only people who may be willing to sacrafice more time and energy than the next guy in order to maintain dominance. Quite frankly, I do think that this trend has increased while probably decreasing my own inclination to get involved in discussion on this forum.

    And you, Chris, are obviously NOT ignorant of the games around here yet still choose to assert your dominance, perpetrating the very behavior that you are seemingly bedrudging me for supporting. I will cede that it takes two (or more) to tango, but you certainly do not seem to exercise much restraint in your posting in settings where it is almost guaranteed to be inflammatory. Because it is clear, for what ever reason, that you love this bull___. If you were really worried about reaching an audience and furthering even the most philanthropic and benevolent agenda, you would certainly not be conducting yourself on this forum the way that you do. Fine, for the sake of argument let's say you are a completely innocent victim, unfairly targeted by the bullies on this board....why stick around for the abuse? Why can you not unite ALL of the like-minded people who share your vision and rally them in some other forum to work toward a common goal?

    My ride to Etobicoke Creek was about 17km from my house. Roadside sign at Martin Grove and Albion says 16km to Bolton. Since this is Walmart flip-flop territory why don't you rip the Nomad down 50 and meet up with Aerius and I to show us how to it's done on his local trails? (if they are progressive enough for you) Oggie, you can come too! We could even fly in Circlip and Shirk. Enduramil will show up, even if it means grappling off the back of the VIA for 200km. This could be epic.

    I almost met with Circlip last night, but could not wait till 11pm for a night ride... wrapped it up around 10:30pm ish...

    Your comments are fair, despite me being one of the "guilty" parties at times. Guilty of accepting the invitation to dance... Remorse comes too late.

    How to change things? I wish a ride or an even can change the attitude, though nothing is impossible. Just when I managed to get Phat Tyred to accept my invitation for a ride at Copeland - he disappeared. I was actually looking forward to it.

    Based on the names you threw in - it would be an epic, though I would invite few more characters. No, not electrik - he needs to work on his post count.

    Putting Endura and Shirk on the same ride would achieve critical mass for nuclear fusion. But we could probably manage... Nogearshere is notably missing from your list and let's not forget Arek. Few others may join, as peacekeepers...

    I bet you - everyone here would sign on the idea, but one. I'd like him to prove me wrong.

    Bring it on!

    You raise a valid point. Next time, I'll bring my manual film camera and document the ride using slide film. Then we can all get together and enjoy a slideshow presentation over a few beers. I have a slide projector, all we need is someone with a white garage door to use as a projector screen.

    Nope, not enough profit margin. More profit in driving to Toronto while giving Queen's students a drive down for $15 a body.

    Something good may happen out of this thread after all... I am in.

    Should we name the committee now?

    We do not need stinking beer sponsors... Though we will accept donations graciously. And bring our own as well.

    Ah, see... where there's smoke there's fire.

    That section of the creek is always where the city always finds mosquitoes that test positive for WNV!

    Probably full of hogweed also.

    Luckily there were no mosquitoes out while we were riding (or they were being very shy).

    The hogweed comment came about because there was an area cordoned off in an adjacent ravine indicating hogweed, but nothing that looked anything close to the (full-grown) plant that we had seen in pictures. I (did not) noticed the same thing where they had signs up in my hood.

    There were some red ants out, but not nearly as many as sent me running out of the trail and picking them out of my shoes around this time last year.

    the statement that there are no bullies is extemely naive

    once again i didn't start the inflamintary post or responses right afterwards... and you immediately jump to conclusions... your long winded post is tiring and self righteous...

    this post is started by a person who stated that he will harass me on every post i make and by another person who has been banned numerous times. by the way he continues to post inflamintory remarks... on the contary i've been quite restrained.

    if you are civil and repectful with me, i'll be civil and repectful to you.

    my philanthropic work is none of your business. it is done to benefit all stakeholders and to provide fair and equable representation.

    by the way i'll ride with who and how i choose. not the way you think it should be done (and there lies the problem)... lol stop acting like chuck woolery

    the hog weed is there, the mature plants have already gone to seed and died back. the immature plants are close to the ground about 24"s high, the leaves are still green.

    there you have it Andrew... gotta work on being more civilized.

    Philanthropic work? Thanks buddy, I don't need your kind of philanthropy. Measured by the same stick, Jozef Mengele must have been a philanthrope as well. Just a bit misunderstood...

    Shirk - there goes your noble idea. However, if you can get Chuck Norris and Endura to come - it is still a promising event and I am in.

    I guess to some - it is more important to keep this artificial gap between artificial "segments of riding population" artificially wide and deep so that they can exist as artificial advocates and self instated defenders of the weak... Chuck Norris would have taken care of this anomaly very quickly.

    Shirk, now what?

    Damn the torpedo's organize a mega epic day of riding and beer drinking to attempt to bring all sides together.

    Sadly I've blown my travel budget with three trips to the mother land already this year. Next summer I am game to ride.

    Perhaps we need to rename the ride from "Nulcear Fusion Ride" to something more socialist that includes all intended stakeholders.

    Suggestions?

    When I finish writing my final masterpiece "Stakeholders Manifesto" (thanks Circlip), you will find all answers to your questions, including quality wet dreams material.

    It will be the most inclusive and anti-insular material since the Bible.

    It will remotely zap all bullies and provide blueprints for all kinds of sustainabilities.

    Even Endura will bend over if asked in civilized manner. If you are civil to him he will be civil to you, I think.

    Now patience grasshopper. I need to focus to finish my masterpiece.

    Pretty sure if you write such a tomb upon first reading of this all-inclusive and totally indiscriminate manifesto that the very gates to trail advocacy's inner sanctum shall open and a howling black hole shall suck all our souls into the ninth circle of hell, right next to the archfiend and angle of darkness - the sierra club committee leader.

    In fact, a certain group of "stakeholders" once sought to unite the planet with just such an artifact. Here is how it ended.

    Bonus points for indirect godwin's law!

    That was good. Quite good actually (note that grammar nazi says tomb s/b tome. Ha - Godwin's Law hit #3 in this thread).

    Now, I want a straight answer. Who are you and what did you do with electrik?

    My thoughts exactly. I am concerned about his well being though once his boss reads his quite commonly witty response. It is so anti-cult, but welcomed change.

    It appears that he polished his presentation, as per a very old suggestion.

    If he repeats this performance I may consider giving some rep.

    I begged my girlfriend to give me some rep last night, but she said she was too tired.

    But let's not get off topic here. Creek Ride With Veteran_Youth p/b Aerius v2.0. When is it happening, and will it achieve critical mass?

    let's give it another day...

    I don't know what happened to Monsters. I hope they are not held hostages by some platform riding militants. In the meantime - where and when? Thread original location? Don? Outside of the city?

    We ain't going to Kingston, no way. Screw Endura...

    Did a little redux of the last 1/3 or so of part II with Circlip this morning. 25km in 1:45 or so at a reasonable but steady pace.

    I was thinking a 3 parter though: Central West to E Creek and back, Central East to Rouge and Back, and as much Don as possible. The main goal being to stay off roads as much as possible. Could string together 80km days easily.

    Well, if you call getting permission to ride 20 hours over 3 days 'easy'. I would try: "It's just as if I were doing Crank the Sheild, but FREE!"

    If you get as far as the Rouge, you can get all the way across Pickering and ride through Duffins creek valley, up the Seaton Hiking Trail all the way to Hwy 7 with only a few hundred m of road to make a few connections.

    I'd be happy to join the ride and take the lead through Pickering.

    I'm also doing a group ride from my place in Pickering next Sunday (7th) that will cover Duffins Creek Valley, some of the Rouge, and the connecting trails in between if anyone wants to come along. 37-45km depending what loops are added.

    You would get turned back 75k out. The area is a firm anti IMBA and Stakeholder Dogma zone.

    ...And we're back. Europe indeed. Bacelona, Laroux and Paris in an 8 day touristic blow-out.

    Now about that creek ride...
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    You guys really need to get out of the Eastern Forum more. Your sounding like a board member who's name I can't recall.

    It was a take on the now famous Rapha Gentleman's race which is also open to women.

    No, not like that. Find some babysitters for the women's kids so that the women can come ride with us.

    Yes, and Electrik is so invested in the thread that he is officially invited. Anyone wanna roll this saturday, early-ish (that is 8-9am for me)? E-creek is fine but I am more comfortable (knowledgable) leading a Don ride. And it is far closer to my house.

    I thought the plan was for a 2012 date so we could include Circlip and Shirk as the honoured guests.
