biking on the Humber river
February 15, 2014 by jnyyz
It’s been a cold winter, the first real winter that we’ve had since we moved back to Canada. Over the last week or so, I noticed that people had been walking and skiing on the Humber.
Today I thought that if the snow was just right, I might be able to bike across the river. You can see here that someone has cut a hole, and that the ice is easily 8″ thick.
Unfortunately, the riding on snow bit didn’t work out so well, but we had a fun time.
We moved a little farther down where an overpass had kept the ice clear of snow, and I had my own little preview of the iCycle race.
Here’s a screenshot of my little adventure.
Note that there are still some areas of open water near drain pipes, etc, and so one should exercise all due caution.
