Today was chock full of bike events. The whole family started off with the Go Green Go Dutch Go Bike event. This has been running for a couple of years now, but it was our first time. Here we are at the start. There were probably a bit over 200 cyclists milling around, dressed in orange.

Some interesting bikes at the start. My favorite was this Bullitt cargo bike. I had never seen one in the wild. Bradley was the support mechanic for the ride. This is, however, a Danish, rather than a Dutch bike.
On the way, our path cross with that of the UJA Walk. Here, along Queen’s Quay, we are taking the lesser of two evils by commandeering the streetcar lane.
The ride ended at the Distillery district, where there was a juxtaposition of products from the Netherlands, “green” things, and various types of electric transportation as part of the Eco Wheels show.
After our blessing, we dropped by Sweet Pete’s to take a look at a bike for our older daughter, which ended up being an early birthday present. The bike is an Opus Rambler, a very nice kid’s bike. I’ll have to post about it another time.
The best kind of day is a family biking day.
