Bay St. on St. Patricks Day

By | March 17, 2011

I’m trying to get into the habit of taking a photo every day of something bikey … right now it’s with my old phone with not very good photo capabilities – but something is better than nothing, right? Today, I snapped a photo of Bay St, looking south from Wellesley.  This has been an ever-changing […]

2011 Counting

By | March 17, 2011

In 2010, for a couple months, I did very unscientific counts of cyclists on my way in to work every morning.  If a bike was being used, and I saw it, I counted it. I also made notes about what time I left home, what the temperature was, and what the weather was like. I […]

Still Lots of Morning Commuters

By | November 17, 2010

Yesterday morning I snapped a quick pic of a part of a group of 6 morning bike commuters I was in as we headed west on Bloor East at around 8 am… temperature hovering around the freezing point.  You can see we’re on the bridge over Rosedale Valley Road. It’s great seeing lots of bikes […]

Cold, but Beautiful

By | November 4, 2010

The mornings may be cold these days, but it’s beautiful riding to work under the last of the fall foliage. Here’s the view shortly after I leave home on my way downtown.  A sidestreet north of the Danforth, near Woodbine:

My Commute: Grateful for Shade

By | September 24, 2010

A few months ago, I posted about one of my favourite views on my commute home from work everyday… the view east along Wellesley – it’s urban, diverse and lively. I’d now like to share a part of my morning commute with you… a part that I was very grateful for during the heat of […]
