Yesterday was a statutory holiday, and around these parts, it is known as Simcoe Day. Regardless of the name, given the nice weather, it was a prime opportunity for a family and friends ride to the lakefront.
Here we are, enjoying the freshly repainted bike lanes on Runnymede road. If you can look closely, on the other side of the street you can see the cross hatching that marks places where there is a driveway, or some other reason that you shouldn’t park.
Here we are waiting for the light at Ellis. This intersection desperately needs improvement. We are still waiting on the City’s response to a comprehensive proposal that we submitted to them a year ago.
Although Lucy loves coming on our bike rides, one thing that she absolutely hates is if anyone she knows is ahead of here. Here, you can hear her complaining as we ride up Ellis. I was herding some of the kids up the hill from behind for safety’s sake, but it sounds like I’m torturing the poor dog.
All in all, a nice way to cap off the long weekend.
