Thanks to the sunshine today, I managed to squeeze in probably the last bike trip this year. We decided to set out later than usual due to the cool temperature (highest 10C). C’mon PM sun & warmth!!
We were off just shy of noon. The route was along the Humber River Trail/ Waterfront Trail; exactly the same as last time except we only rode past the Leslie Spit. Nothing noteworthy……until we took a break at the Scarborough Bluffs. There was a weird noise coming from my front wheel when we set out again. I initially thought it was leaves & twigs stuck on the fork crown & brake pads as my wheel spun around. Upon closer inspection….OH GAWD! It was dog crap!!!
Just the PERFECT way to end my bike season – unforgettable!! Luch & I spent at least 15min trying to get it out using twigs & leaves. We stopped at Remarkable Bean later for a much deserved Cappuccino. Don’t worry, we washed our hands first!!
The return trip was just COLD!! We biked on with chattering teeth & frozen toes. BRRR!! My left kneecap started hurting & I ended up biking the entire return trip with my right leg! Thank goodness that’s my strong leg! I couldn’t bike uphill & did several “walk-of-shames“.
Once we reached Luch’s house, I immediately hosed down my bike. It STUNK!! This was followed by an awesome dinner & trying to get his cat to like me. Good day all in all despite the crap.
