Today was the annual “Coldest Day of the Year Ride”, it being a comparatively balmy 7°C. The starting point this year was Sherbourne Commons, at the lakefront, and we were going to be routed along Queen’s Quay, up Simcoe, and along Adelaide to show off some of the recent downtown bike infrastructure.

Councillor Cressy does a little preaching to the choir about the bike lanes on Bloor pilot.
Councillors Davis and Fragedakis were also on the ride.
And we’re off, headed west on Queen’s Quay.

Up Simcoe, with all intersections corked by Toronto’s finest.
These kids were properly bundled up.

a bit of confusion about which camera to look at. Don’t look at me!
Finally, Jared invites several hundred of his closest friends to “Betty’s” for some post ride refreshment.
Good to see so many people out for a fun ride downtown. Thanks to Cycle Toronto for putting on the event.
