I took my old bike in for a tune up at MEC last week and picked it up tonight after work. I went for a short little ride around and it felt soooo good!
I'm actually going to look into the feasibility of riding to work once or twice during the week. I would cycle from my place to Spadina Subway station then ride up to Downsview Station and then cycle the rest of the way to my office. On the way back, I'd ride my bike all the way back downtown. I figured out a route on the weekend the gets me from the office and down to hook up with Bike Route #35 that will get me all the way down to Queen Street West.
I know it will be a long haul, but hey I did it before about *cough cough* 20 years ago. Of course, then it wasn't for work (anyone remember the Benson and Hedges Symphony of Fire??) but I also rode both ways, the whole route. I was also dating an ex-triathlete at the time and had a 23" waist. :p But that's beside the point!! Of course, they're calling for the weather to go back to the regular temps and such for March as of the weekend when I was hoping to do a trial run. Dang it!!
