HEADING OUT ALONG THE QEW ON A GORGEOUS MORNING
THE RESTING POINT ON THE DVP, HALFWAY THROUGH THE 50K
The Ride for Heart was a couple of weekends ago - wow, what an amazing way to see Toronto!!! It was phenomenal to be able to ride on the QEW and the DVP on a beautiful Sunday morning. 50k went by surprisingly quickly - I was pleased that my beloved vintage red Western Flyer bike (complete with basket, trusty back-pedal brakes and no gears) somehow survived those inclines, as did I. Of course I was surrounded by a troupe with sexy hot-shot bicycles (I didn't see ANY other bikes with baskets by the way) - it was fun to be immersed in an enthusiastic crowd of people who love to cycle. Not only was a lot of money raised for a great cause but there was a palpable excitement at seeing the city from a territory normally clogged by cars.
Thanks to Marty + Dufflet for hosting amazingly generous pre + post ride gatherings at their beautiful home.
