Victoria Day Along the Lakefront

Today is Victoria Day, the civic holiday which, in theory, celebrates the birthday of Queen Victoria, but which really marks the beginning of summer. And we’ve had such an awful spring that anything welcoming warm weather is so very welcome. (I do believe it snowed last week. Just sayin’.) Since today was about as perfect as a day can be, with blue skies, bright sun, and temperatures that stayed within in the comfortable range – as opposed to the blast-furnace range we often get in July – we thought that nothing would be better than to take the bikes out for the first real ride of the season.

We chose Port Credit as our destination. It’s a good ride, but not too far, and has the advantage of being in a separate city, so we can now proudly crow that we’ve biked from one city to another and back. Never mind that it’s only 20km each way. We’ll still crow.

Here are some photos from the ride.
