The Grand Opening of Quay to the City

I woke up far too early for a Saturday and made my way down to Queens Quay and York for the opening of Quay to the City.

There were tons of cyclists using the new facilities, and every comment I heard was overwhelmingly positive.

Here’s a few photos I took to update the “in progress” ones from yesterday:

Here’s some of us congregating at the Bike Arch before the official opening.

…and here we are riding it, all official-like.

It was a beautiful morning for biking a newly car-free area!

I didn’t see anyone on the grass the whole time… looks like a good place to set up lawn chairs and watch the city go cycling by.

I took 19 photos in all, and you can look at them all, if that cranks your chain. ;)
