Elgin, JC Higgins, J.C. Higgins, They're All Sears bikes, and all freaking awesome!!  I love that the Firestone bikes are all the same frames too... It's too bad there isn't more information out there about these bikes as they totally kick ass.  Yes, they're not quite as good quality as a Schwinn, but they're absolutely serviceable and personally I find they fit taller riders a bit better.  One really could ask why AREN'T these bikes ruling the world about now?!?

You all missed out!!

Friday was actually a pretty danged good ride.  Warm - in fact I was TOO hot most of the night, temperature about 15 degrees give or take the entire night.  Yeah, about 7:00 when I left the house the rain was coming down pretty good, but nothing like February where it was doing the same thing but it was only 5 degrees... Brrr...

So we got down to the roundabout - I'd talked to Mad Dog, Dylan and Kendal all of whom said they were coming.  Everyone else had cancelled but hey, 5 people make a pretty decent ride, right??  Get there, nobody else around.  D'oh... Got a call from Dylan and Kendal saying they weren't coming out...  Gargamel!  Hey guys, we ride 10k to meet up with you...  If you're not going to come out a little advanced warning would be nice!!!  Same goes for you Mad Dog!!  We hung around for a good 45 minutes waiting 'cuz you said you were coming...

Anyhow, so there we were standing by the park for nothing... Then Michael called - him and Danu were looking to ride.  Excellent!!  Sounds much better than just going home again and I certainly wasn't going to ride the park.  So Pops and I headed up through Downtown to see the sights and grab some dinner before heading out towards Michael's place.  That led us to do this route....

Apart from a few drops of rain on the way down there the weather was actually pretty danged nice all evening.  Just gorgeous out - no wind, nice and warm, and most of all NO RAIN!!  By the time we got up to the cemetery we had stars in the sky and a gorgeous view of the city laid out before us.  Hey, sometimes the best nights happen out of nowhere.  You gotta make the most of it!

Good on ya! We headed to Joe's for the non-riding extravaganza and crawled home near 2. Went to Whistler to ski on Saturday and are ready to roll Monday at noon at the Roundabout. See you there! Cheers, Jamie.
