Today is TOPCA’s 1st Annual Cycling Tour of Port Credit in celebration of Port Credit’s 175th birthday!! My bro & I headed out early to make a pit stop at Timmy’s to grab some breakfast. I opted for a breakfast sandwich – cinnamon raisin bagel with egg & bacon.
The tour was a 20km cycling route around Port Credit for about 2 hours. We had some pitstops for photos & discussions. This was a good introduction of the waterfront trail for me since I would be biking on this path en route to work. We rode by important landmarks, & public art including the infamous “Bicycle Planter Project” where old bikes were painted & placed on the streets of Port Credit (Visit TOPCA’s site for more information).
A community picnic was provided after the tour. I brought my own lunch because I suspected they would only be offering baked goods. Sure enough, they had gigantic cookies, butter tarts, & juice boxes. This was a generous offer, however my tummy wasn’t at its best today after consuming the breakfast sandwich this morning. So I ate my PB&J sandwich (& a strawberry that a fellow biker offered me).
My bro & I originally planned on biking home. We ended up taking the bus because it started drizzling after we stopped by an ice cream store for a small frozen yogurt cup. Once we got on the bus, however, the rain magically stopped. Funny how these things always happen in life.
