The last Sweet Ride was originally set for mid-October so that we could take in the fall colours, but the weather didn’t cooperate so we postponed the ride and luckily for us the weather was super warm and dry(despite there being a lack of beautiful leaves).
We started mid-town at Uncle Betty’s, a cute diner on Yonge north of Eglinton.
And then we were off! Thanks to Joe’s great route, we had an enjoyable ride on residential streets to the Belt Line.
Then we biked through the Kay Gardner Beltline until we got to Mount Pleasant Cemetery. There were still leaves on the trees and the sunset was casting a nice golden glow on them.
The timing was perfect for this ride because we got to ride towards a beautiful sunset.
By the time we got to Smoke’s it was dark. A few of us were too full from our Uncle Betty’s poutine to order a 2nd one, but most of us stepped up to the challenge and we chatted a bit about which poutine we liked better. Most of our conversations, however, were centered around civic politics and of course bike related topics.
Thank you so much for coming out to the Poutine Ride, guys!!
And thank you to everyone that came out to one of the co-ed Sweet Rides this year. Looking back, it’s amazing to see how many people came out this year! I hope everyone that came out was able to meet as many amazing people on these rides as I did.
Thank you for coming out!!
With or without bike lanes, we WILL ride in the city 🙂 Stay safe out there.
