Urban Biking in Toronto

I'm officially on vacation and spending some time in Toronto.  Rather than give you my latest insights about speech therapy, or rant and rave about the stupidity of the North Carolina General Assembly, I thought I would offer some images of urban biking.  Normally, when David and I bike, it's on a beautiful rural rail-to-trail somewhere- far from sirens, bus stops, traffic, and graffiti. Urban trail biking is completely different---in some ways more interesting, and let me experience a city like none of my other middle-aged friends have.

 We started off on the Don River Trail, and then ended up on the Martin Goodman Trail.  Highlights included seeing the CN tower from all angles, stopping at the Distillery District, biking along the waterfront, crossing bridges, zipping through tunnels, and seeing every type of graffiti imaginable.  I loved it and we logged 30 miles round trip.

It started off looking slightly woodsy--that lasted about 5 minutes.

Distillery District (this looks like a pacifier, don't you think?)

Can you spot the CN tower behind the graffiti?

How did the painters do this without falling in?

Thirty miles!

 Stay tuned for more!!!!
