I started cycling 15 years ago for the exercise.
Motto: Slow and steady is the way to go.
I now spend a lot of time on the trail as a volunteer.
I like to travel as well, normally by car but for the long distances I will fly.
Today I cycled to Belvedere Ave, then cycled the trail to the Lower Malpeque road in Winsloe. The trail has firmed up a lot and I would say 90% of summer conditions. I then cycled the roads home.
Temperature was around +1 but the wind was a NE gusting to 50 km/h. I cycled days in February that were warmer.
