Photos from a BikingToronto Firepit Social

One of the great things about running a website about biking in Toronto and building it up into the largest and most popular one is all the people you meet.  With a few exceptions, everyone I meet through my work with BikingToronto is kind, generous and giving, and I’ve made some good friends.

A few weeks ago we had a BikingToronto Social at the Madison, and we’re planning a “Biking Toronto Ice Cream Social” for mid-July… and last week a few of us got together for a few hours around a firepit at Dufferin Grove Park and chatted, ate chips and roasted marshmallows.

I’m sharing a few photos from the evening because it was fun, and pictures are pretty.

The firepit crew was Todd (of the Long Ride East), Sage (of Quirky Nomads), Daegan (of Todd & Sage), Annie, Georgette (of Georgie_Grrl on Flickr), Derek, Andre, Hyedie (of the Toronto Girls Cupcake Ride), Kathryn, Duncan (of Duncan’s City Ride) and myself.

Almost all of these photos are by Georgette on Flickr (the 1st and 3rd are by me).  You should check out her photos.

Getting Ready

 

Annie "the Fire Queen" - she took a fire certification course to book the firepit, and Georgette made her a funny little crown in recognition.

 

Derek and Annie coax the Fire Gods to come out and play

 

The wet ground was not co-operating. We let Derek work his magic...

 

Derek loves marshmallows

 

The one pic of Hyedie without marshmallows on her stick. ;)

 

We’ll let you know when we finalize plans for the Ice Cream Social… it’ll probably involve bike riding and ice cream! :)
