It was also the last day I was going to do a morning ride in more than 10 days...so, I wrote my plan for the day down and Steph kindly offered to have our morning date 30 min earlier - at 6:00 am, that 30 minutes at that point in the day is a true friendship gift.
This is what that ride looked like using pictures from the last 2 rides.
4:50 am: Wake up. Curse life choices but enjoy current alarm ring tone choice.
5:35 am: Drink half a pot of coffee and contemplate eating...reject the idea, even the sun is to tired to feel hungry that early in the morning.
The Meatgrinder and enjoy view of the waterfront. Maybe life is rich...
6:15 am: Connect with Steph at bottom of High Park.
6:30 am: Get lapped by cycling club on Ellis. Contemplate competing with them...realize that it was the hanger talking
6:45 am: Gget lapped again. Curse them.
7:00 am: Start back to the deep east. Take selfie next to giant Inukshuk.
7:15 am: Go through a significantly changed Meatgrinder. Contemplate the impact of this construction on my netherregions. Make a mental note to never think of this again...also to eat before doing this again.
7:45 am: Arrive at my house say hello to my family gettng ready for their days. Drink ALL the coffee.
I think the real victims of our choices might be Jason and Joe here.
If you feel the urge PWA Toronto is a great organization to sponsor and we have a whole team of hard working cyclists on our team looking for support on this crazy ride. Check it out - we ride and post terrible pictures for coffee money.
