Continuing on with my earlier blog post I am blogging on the Summer Games contest hosted by Let’s Go Ride A Bike. Yesterday’s game was to go on a group ride so I grabbed two of my friends from my bike club we went out on a 50km road ride.

We met up in downtown Toronto and made our way eastward along the lake towards Port Credit. It was a super hot day that day with the high being close to 34c and there was little wind to keep us cool but we still pushed on and it was totally worth it. We rode during the work day so we didn’t have to worry about rush hour traffic and the drivers who were out there were very courteous and gave us plenty of space. Midway through the ride we started getting a bit competitive and had some friendly sprints from one set of lights to another.
I managed to record the ride via helmet cam
After a quick rest-stop at a coffee shop in Port Credit we worked our way back to Toronto at a more leisurely pace soaking up the sights and sounds of the waterfront and soaking up some sun. In my opinion, this is honestly the best way to earn a tan.
