GLORIOUS day of cycling! I didn’t have days off last weekend so my plan this weekend is to take full advantage of having nothing on my plate for three whole days by pedalling a lot.
Today’s ride was a bit of an exploratory one. I meant to go to Mooney’s Bay, which I’ve read is a great urban beach but I somehow missed the turnoff and ended up going back up the canal on the other side….whoops.
No matter, though, I will surely find it next time! I still got to see the rapids, and discovered Parc Vincent Massey.
Took a breather by the river (I constantly get the Rideau canal and river mixed up…probably one of the reasons why I’m so easily disoriented here).
Oh man, I really should bring a camera next time- these Blackberry pictures aren’t as good as they looked on the phone screen
Finished up the ride in Strathcona Park.
ELLE mag, tunes, and an unpictured chocolate hazelnut cookie from Bread & Sons!
In total I biked about 30km – not too shabby, though I’d like to be doing 40+ a day on weekends eventually!
Still in a bit of a love affair with Twin Shadow’s music – had this stuck in my head throughout le bike ride:
