Hit the Cape Cod Canal for about 11miles...55*! Got the light 15-20mph Cape Cod breeze...pushed me all the way home for a change...I usually ride later in the day and the breeze and I turned around at the same time...in my face both ways!

Nice photo, Narhay. What part of the eastern waterfront trail is this at? Curious as to your route. Did you ride out from the west end or downtown T.O, along Kingston Road through Scarborough until the trail begins again after Guildwood? The Waterfront Trail's eastern gap from the Beaches to Guildwood makes traveling by bike out of the city in that direction a bit difficult.

I feel the same way as you, I've spent my whole life in the Great Plains or the Midwest.

My biggest surprise is always how much green space I see in our NYC Bikeforums members' pictures!

It shouldn't be since I feel like access to green spaces is a fundamental need of human beings and they will design that into wherever they live, but I still can't get the stereotypical concrete monolith idea of NYC out of my head.

I don't know how he got there but that's the Leslie Street Spit parkland. It goes quite a ways out into Lake Ontario.

I've got to come down and ride with you, Bill. We still have snow and ice up here!

The Other Day

I can't complain about the temperatures in February where I am in NC (compared to what I had in Long Island NY 5 years ago)!
Short ride by the scenic weeds section of my local Greenway... which will eventually be green.

Cold chill came back to the Northeast today. Was 26F when I left the house but roads were clear of salt and ice and the brooks still babbled.

Haven't posted many ride pics lately because rides have been largely short boring and snowy here in the Rockies the last month or so. Mostly just a few miles on the few back roads that somewhat clear the bike path and trails are under about 4 feet of snow right now.

Actually I just happened to find the shovel on the small part of the bike path that was clear. Nice shovel that some discarded so I just strapped it to my bike and brought it home and fixed it up bit. At this point I'm never really surprised at the stuff I find on along the side of the road or the bike path.

Went for a spin around the river with a riding buddy who hadn’t seen my new-to-me Raleigh on the road yet. “I’ve got something sorta old I can ride,” he says. Shows up on an Eddy Merckx with full Dura Ace. Where’d that come from?!?!

AMarch is coming in like a lamb in Chicago. Sunny and 55!

Rode 46 miles up to Lake Forest.



The only vestiges of last week's snow are the piles in the parking lots.



The First Presbyterian Church built in 1886.



A bridge over one of the many ravines that carve their way to Lake Michigan.



Stopped on the College of Lake Forest campus at the Durand Art Institute.



Lake Forest has the largest hedge that I've ever seen. Note person in pic for scale.



Overall, not a bad day. Second ride of the year and the was a headwind coming home, but good to get out.

No pictures. Just a group of 6 who stayed together and did a century in St. Louis on March 1st.
We did a metric last Saturday. Trying to get ready for the season. Times could have been faster, I suppose.
We took our sweet time, and a lot was on paths that were busy with the nice weather.

My morning commute held a few surprises. The first was the "Bikeway Closed" sign. So, like, how am I supposed to get to work this morning? I rode the MM anyway. Didn't see anything until I reached Bow St were I get off anyway, a bunch of tree workers and trucks, not quite ready to start their day.

The second surprise was the dusting of snow that fell on Lexington last night. Just enough to make me skittish about being skiddish, so I rode out in the traffic lane for much of it.

Oh, and the wind. Did I mention wind? And new potholes. And all the construction going on at Woburn Mall. It ain't easy these days.

Well, I made it to work and back home safely with another story to tell.
