Sunny Saturday Morning Ride: The ooZ pooL


There's no better way to start the weekend than on two wheels in the sun.  There was a big crowd at Ted Reeve at 7:00 -- no surprise.  JRod gave what he promised was his last pre-ride missive.  Most people were heading off to Stouffville.  I had planned to ride up to Whitevale as has been my usual the last few weeks.  At the last moment I changed my mind and enjoyed a lovely, totally chilled out ride with Jeff, Mel, Trish, Sarah and Suzanne.  Being only six, we agreed that it would be safe and fun to do a little improvising.  We rode east along Hill Cresc., wound down into the Guild, east along the Waterfront, and finally up Altona, Old Finch, Beare and Plug Hat, basically making our way up to the zoo counterclockwise.  Between our backwards route to the zoo and all the road kill along the way (I dare say the racoons had a really rough night), we christened our ride "The ooZ pooL". Hope everybody else had a safe and great morning.

I really like the fact that this club allows me to ride with likeminded people.  There is such a variety of needs with this club,  but there seems to be a great enough following that it allows something for everyone.

I'm finding over the years, I do like the basic routes, but I also like to mix them up a bit and take a turn that is unexpected and unplanned.  I can do that here. This ride was exactly that.  I wanted a ride that would allow me to favour my sore wrist, but was a little different then the routes marked in stone.

The group we formed seemed to be likeminded and we ended up taking turns I didn't even know existed.  It was fun to explore and I got to see a little more of my neighbourhood because of it.  Thanks Jeff, John, Sarah, Suzanne, and Trish for making my Saturday something to smile about.
