Wonderful bike ride this morning to Hummer Bay. What a contrast to last weekend’s weather. Below are some pictures of what I saw along the way. The challenge with social media is that it can often bury pictures and memories in one’s timeline. So, by doing this blog post it’ll be easier for me to go back and remember today’s journey.
I saw this article on Medium come across my feed about Share The Road (STR) Cycling Coalition’s 10th anniversary. Check it out here!
It’s been great to get to know the group’s founder, now MPP and Minister Eleanor McMahon, and participate in the Ontario Bike Summit and the annual Greg’s Ride. I still have and use my STR water bottle and jersey. Eleanor has been a wonderful mentor for my career and cycling advocacy, and it’s a lot of fun to spend time with and has lots of energy and passion.
While the circumstances of Eleanor founding STR are tragic, she’s worked hard and shown amazing courage to create change. Change was needed and it’s happening now. Well done to Eleanor, STR staff, board members, volunteers, and event participants!
As recently as 2002/2003 this is what the area under the Garinder beside Fort York looked like. Before photos by Phil Muller.
And this is what it looks like today. The skating trail under the Garinder is now open.
Used the 504 to get to a medical appointment with Dad. First time he’s been through the King Street Pilot area. He enjoyed the speedy commute.
