I thought it would be fun to do a year in review.
Looking back, I am amazed that we had dry, sunny weather for every group ride, except for one Sweet Ride. How lucky!!
In 2012, I organized 5 Cupcake Rides:
By May we were in full-on summer mode!
In June we braved 38 degree weather and rode from Avenue/Lawrence down to Little Italy.
The July ride was not as hot, but most of us opted to end our ride with a popsicle!
The last Cupcake Ride of 2012 had a smaller than anticipated turn out due to torrential rain in the morning.
And Joe and I organized 4 everybody-is-welcome Sweet Rides:
The Sweet Ride season opener (Cupcake Edition) was a bit chilly despite it being held at the end of April.
The second Sweet Ride started and ended with the consumption of Frozen Yogurt!
The Sweet Ride, Ice Cream edition saw the biggest turn out for our food themed rides yet!
Our last group ride of the year: Sweet Ride, Poutine Edition. The only ride this year that was postpone due to inclement weather.
I also took part in a few non-Cupcake/Sweet Rides:
I biked out to practically Mississauga for a Rib Fest!
Embarrassed myself at the Red Bull Mini Drome
And 2012 saw the inaugural Women Who Bike brunch!

I know I always end a post with a lot of thank yous, but I am very grateful to everyone who came out and rode with me whether on a Sweet Ride, a Cupcake Ride or even just a brief ride together on the streets headed towards different destinations.
Thank you for making my bike rides in Toronto that much better.
Happy New Year and may your days in 2013 be filled with happy, safe and fun rides.
