I had the pleasure of meeting Martino during the ride, and he shot a video of the ride, from which I took this screenshot, as we approached Yonge & Bloor from the north (I think I was beside or behind him at this point):
Nice meeting you Tino!
I only stayed with the ride for about 40 minutes (which goes by really fast), during which time I had the experience of riding through the Eaton Centre. I had heard that they’d done it before, but this was the first time I’d been with the Mass when they’d done it.
The route for as long as I rode, before I headed home.
It was only across the mall, from Yonge St. to Trinity Square, but it was fun to see the extreme reactions from shoppers – either shock/anger at seeing a bunch of cyclists biking through, or joy and elation at seeing a bunch of cyclists biking through!
A very fun ride. Let’s all meet up at Bloor & Spadina at 6:30 pm on April 28th. That’s the last day of Earth Week. Actually, April is Earth Month… a perfect time to ride your bike (or transit, or your feet…) more and the car less.
