It was a cool and blustery daaaay, but, any day on the bike is better than the couch! Glad so many made it out, nice to meet you Jose (man in black on the left)
Other than the stick that jumped up into Ian's back wheel, the ride was another success. I saw Ian later with his repaired steed, it wasn't terminal, nothing few new pcs couldn't fix.
The 'faster group' took a side trip through the new bike path Ellesmere to Thompson Park, re-enter at Brimley and Lawrence. thru the wilds of Scarborough, over the LRT tracks, south to Kennedy LTR station. The path is in good shape, smooth and roughly follows the hydro lines. The crossing signals on a few major roads are installed but not yet active.
Of course coffee at the end was a nice treat.
