We have a thread for baseball, hockey, ufc at times, soccer and others. Are there any casual or serious cyclists out here? Greart exercise and a fun way to see the sights in and around beautiful Montreal and Quebec, and many other places not limited to just Montreal.
So just got back from my first trip on the Lachine Trails this afternoon. When i first opened the door to my balcony and felt the chill in the air i was a little disappointed it was not warmer but went anyways. Once i got outside and realised with a light jacket, it was not that bad and at times in the sun it was very nice.
Took out the brand new bike (thanks guys! you know who you are) and did not try to overdue it the first time out on the bike path and did a modest 26k. Ahhhh the sights, sounds and smells of spring were abundant. The grass is getting greener, the smell of charcoal from somebody grilling lunch, the beautiful st lawrence right beside at all times, a drone being flown, people kayaking, one boat in the water lol, a wind surfer, even the traditional smell along that trail of somebody trying to get higher than the kite i saw flying. And when it warms up very soon, the sights of bikinis and daisy dukes will make the viewing pleasures even better while riding. All in all a great ride considering the cooler air but soon it will be warm and the people will be out in force.
So if you ride or even want to start, maybe even have a group ride sometime, feel free to post, ladies as well as you gents.
