Photos from the Sweet Ride: Frozen Yogurt Edition

This past Saturday was the latest edition of the co-ed Sweet Rides I plan with Hyedie of the Girls Cupcake Rides.  We did it up with Frozen Yogurt Style and it was a great day!  Perfect weather, a great group of people, and great frozen yogurt businesses.  We even ended the ride with full on bicycle-love at MEC’s BikeFest at the Distillery District.

Here’s a quick re-cap, through photos. You can see Hyedie’s photos here, and Emma did a write-up of her experience on the ride here.

People gathering at Menchies in the Annex:

Why do smart businesses say yes to a visit from the Sweet Ride?  Everyone buys, and you get a big crowd in front of your establishment.

Over the Sunnyside Bridge.  This is one of my very favourite views on a bike in Toronto.

Ended up at the MEC BikeFest at the Distillery District.  Huge line for Cycle Toronto’s Bike Valet service.

Thanks so much to everyone who came out.  The Sweet Ride is about food and about bikes, but it’s the people who come out that make the rides great.

As always, big thanks to my co-organizer Hyedie of the Girls Cupcake Ride, her knowledge of the West End helped us get around, and planning rides with her is a lot of fun (and I try to make everything I do fun, because life is too short to have it be otherwise).

MAPS! Helping cyclists avoid smoggy routes in Toronto and Montreal

  Amazing tool!  Played with it a long time.  Very telling that when you turn off the street map, high pollution levels still indicate where roads (and especially highways and the airport) are, and where the ravines (without highways) are. It is essentially a Google Map with an extra layer representing the average concentration of […]
