Let's make this ride a big one!



From all the comments on the last post, it's obvious that everybody has got the riding itch, haha! Let's make it a double whammy! Let's meet at Squirly's, play with them for a while and test ride them.
Bring tools and parts you may want to replace or install. Squirly's is at 807 Queen St West, west of Bathurst St., south side.

What time Sunday? 2, 3, anyone?

    if we're gonna do wrenching we can't really do it at squirly's. maybe we should have a wrenching afternoon and then go for a ride after. there's no room at squirly's.

    If the weather holds and it's sunny I'll be there. (fair weather rider). Are we wrenching or riding or both? If wrenching then where? I agree with Lindsay there's no room at Squirly for wrenching.

    we can do it at my place i guess, but i'll kill anyone that shows up before 3pm. (i'm working at the bar the night before). i've got a decent size back yard and there's space in the alley behind my place too.

    Where are you located? Or do we meet at Squirly's, and go from there.

    What... wrench day is going to be THIS sunday? I'll never make that, since I have to go get my old bike outta storage in Ajax. Are we goingt o have another day, or is this just a ride?

    Also, another quick note: 3pm is a really bad time to start an outdoor wrenching day this early in spring. It'll get dark before we have a really good long time to work on the peds (also it may rain this weekend, but they jury's still out on that).

    Really maybe just a ride would be best this sunday and we can have the wrench day sometime within the next couple of weeks, with more advanced planning so it can start earlier (and we can maybe even find a location that doesn't require 20 of us to overrun your lawn).

    I'll settle for a ride. Nothing needs doing on my bike anyways. Just feel the need to get out the moped and go for a ride.

    i've been riding a lot, but the garelli ain't doing so well:) it runs great but takes forever to start. i'm not sure what's the matter with it.

    i can't do anything before 3pm on sundays, as i don't get home from work until about 6am on saturday nights.

    the rest of you will remember what i look like stumbling in before 3 lol!

    well scratch what i said about it running like shit. i just rode home from work (best riding day ever!) and for some reason it ran awesome!! maybe it's happy that it's warm out and it doesn't have to live under a tarp for the next few months:)

    if we ever want a good spot to meet for a wrench day, i have a great house to host one.
    i'll see everyone at squirly's for my inaugral RCMP ride. unfortunately, i'll have to ride the tomos as my PC50 won't make a spark - can't wait!!

    ...another option is to meet at squirly's, do some wrenching at trinity bellwoods (if need be), and go for a long ride....



    ...and then, of course, back to squirly's for an apres-pint.

    Hey folks, I live in a VERY large estate in North Rosedale. We have a large property with an indoor swimming pool(heated),decks and terraces(lots of room),and most importantly bathrooms!

    I'm thinking we meet for the wrenching about 1pm. This early time is so that we'd have enough time to get in a decent ride after the wrenching. Anyone not needing to fix anything can lounge or maybe go for swim. Bring your own suits and towels though and any consumables. Let me know if this interests anyone.

    Darcy.

    darcy that sounds awesome. i think the 1st meet up of the year will be our ride at squirly's on sunday at 3, but i totally vote for a meet at your place one day:)

    Yeah, let's meet at Squirly's and ride up to Darcy's and check it out. No wrenching needed here. The Grande sat under a tarp outside all winter and started with just a long pedal.
