2021 Bike Ride 16

My sisters sent me a lovely Cleverhood poncho for my birthday and it was raining this afternoon so I jumped on my bike to test it out. It was great and I finished the ride dry. I can’t wait to have the poncho when I need to be outside in the rain.

Last weekend, we took a long weekend in Toronto so that the baby could meet her great grandmother, to see some friends and get some different air. It was a success on all fronts but we did need to get rapid tests to visit my grandmother since we had been out of the province. I accept the need for testing but it is a bit strange that you can drive 5 hours from another province and need to be tested but from 5 hours away in the same province you don’t.
