Trails in November   Leave a comment

Happy November Cyclist

I figure anytime I can be out on my bike in November that is pretty good and today, November 7th I did just that. It was a lovely afternoon – sunny with a temperature of around 5C. Fortunately there has been no snow yet this year so the trails were dry.

I did about 15km, on my mountain bike taking the paved trail through Dawson Park, then the dirt trail beside the river to the 50th Street footbridge. On the way back I took the trail up and down the Kinnaird Ravine and then the paths on the north slope of Dawson Park.

Although it was not a long ride by any means, I ended up being out for a couple of hours as I was stopping so often to take pictures. I will just let those pictures tell the story of my afternoon:

All in all, a very enjoyable afternoon ride and hopefully not my last one for November or 2011.
