Stood in a spot and twirled around – trying to take it all in:
Then, I did it again! (from a different spot, of course.)
Then, I went up on the newly open green roof at City Hall and did an overhead video.
Here are all the photos I took of the event – starting at the group commute stopped at City Hall, all the way down Yonge St. and across Queen to Nathan Phillips Square.
Your eyes do not deceive you… I ran into Duncan while heading down Yonge St.
Got to see City Hall’s new green roof!
See? I was there in an I Bike T.O. shirt.

While I no longer bike to work, (I actually roll and then step to work in my home office) I still wanted free breakfast pancakes and chose to join the hundreds of Torontonians in the Bike Month Group Commute.
A whole lot of cyclists on the same route sure slows things down, but unlike when this happens with cars (every day), you can chit chat with your neighbour, sing a song or two and simply enjoy the fresh morning air.
Every day should be bike to work day for you. If it isn’t, ask yourself why? What is keeping you from biking to work? Is it because you feel you live too far? Is it because you don’t want to get sweaty? Is it because you don’t have a bike?
Remember, there are no good REASONS for not cycling to work, there are only EXCUSES.
Bells on Bloor happened today, with a reported 1500 cyclists taking part.
If you missed it (or if you were there and want to see it again), here’s a video by mrtini on youtube.
