My mom's tricycle, tearin' up the streets in their Hamilton neighbourhood.
I bought the "Street Racer" license plate for her in Palanga, Lithuania, on one of the final days of last year's European vacation.
Jen's Bike Friday is an adorable little red folding bike. Here it is in my parent's backyard after our ride to their place.
Similar to yesterday's photo, here's Jen riding up the Chedoke Rail Trail in Hamilton.
Two weekends in a row, Jen and I had our bikes in Hamilton visiting family. Here's Jen riding up the Chedoke Rail Trail, a very fun, scenic, and best of all EASY way to climb the escarpment.
On the shelf in our kitchen: A little trike planter (thanks Grandma!) and a bunch of squash (thanks Good Food Box!).
My bikey and my wifey on the Chedoke Rail Trail in Hamilton.
On Saturday, Jen and I rode out to Mississauga for an appointment, then down to Port Credit to catch a trail to Aldershot (Burlington). From there, we rode into Hamilton to visit my parents. My parents live up on The Mountain, so the last little bit of riding to their place is usually the toughest as we have to climb a few hundred feet up out of downtown Hamilton along the access roads (typically, the Jolly Cut).
But when we have some extra time and want to go for a nicer ride, we take one of the rail trails that start from the near the centre of the city and fan out up to the east or west end up The Mountain. This time we took the Chedoke Rail Trail from the top of Dundurn St., which leads to Scenic Drive on the West Mountain near the start of Ancaster. Always a lovely ride. Not steep at all, so it hardly feels like we're riding uphill. Plus, there are many excellent views of the West End and Dundas Valley, and a nice shady forest (in the summer, anyway).
I really do love riding my bike in The Hammer, and always look forward to it.
Bruce's bike, last Sunday, during the Fuzzy Boundaries parade through our neighbourhood. Residents were encouraging each other to come out and vote to name our neighbourhood.
The name Junction Triangle ended up winning. Bruce was somewhat disappointed, as his favourite name "Fuzzy Triangle" didn't make the Top 10 cut.
A cyclist rides past the former D&M Hardware building at 229 Wallace Ave. in my 'hood. This building was transformed into a temporary canvas displaying the top 10 names for the "Fuzzy Boundaries" neighbourhood naming project. Voting wraps up tomorrow, Sunday March 14th.
The building is supposed to be demolished a couple of weeks from now to make way for a new commercial structure.
