A hot morning (29C at 10am) and I should’ve gone out riding earlier so I had a slower ride than usual. A good loop including some new Verdun, and walking up to the new Peel/Wellington intersection where the bike lanes and new wider sidewalks are coming together.

Total trip distance: 16.33 km

2021 Bike Ride 11

Out for a random ride today. I went toward Verdun and then popped over to the Lachine Canal. I tried out a newer path that passes over the 20 along the 138 before turning up a short steep hill on Brock Ave. After this I went over the familiar Maisonneuve cycleway.

Total trip distance: 19.86 km

I didn’t really plan the ride today. I just went with the turns and found myself crossing the Jacques-Cartier bridge so I decided to cut it off at the island and come back past Habitat ‘67. It was really windy on the westward parts of the ride.
