My First Waterfront Ride of 2008

A big reason winter wears a lot of us down is we don’t have a chance to get outside a lot – this past winter I restricted my cycling to getting to work and back, but now that the sun and warmth is with us more, I’m starting up my recreational rides again. :)

I like to take the “long way home” when it’s nice out – going west from downtown along College through Little Italy, then down Lansdowne and Queen, eventually going over the pedestrian bridge at Queen & Roncesvalles to the Martin-Goodman Trail. Here are a few pics from that trip yesterday:


I stopped at College & Spadina and tried to photograph cyclists (but my camera is old, and with a shutter delay – so it was pretty hit-and-miss… haha)


I checked out Lansdowne to see if the recent narrowing of the street with bike sharrows had created “traffic chaos” as some Lansdowne residents thought it might: Nope!


I stopped at the controversial bike bollards at the Boulevarde Club to see what the big deal was. I don’t think they’re that bad. Maybe if you’re training for races on the path (which is dumb anyways), but for a casual cyclist – no problem!


It was windy as heck out – here’s my new bike, near Ontario Place


I’m lucky the shutter went off at the right time as I zoomed by. :)


The west end of the Queens Quay bikelane – one of my favourite biking views in Toronto – love seeing the CN Tower and line of condos basking in the sun.

I took a bunch more, and you can see them on Flickr.
