Slim Creek Provincial Park - Hike with the Caledonia Ramblers

On October 27, I joined the Ramblers for another exciting hike.  This particular day, we would be hiking in Slim Creek Provincial Park, just across from the Ancient Forest.  Even though it didn't get very warm that day, when the sun was shining, it seemed to warm things up a bit.  We had a good turnout of 12 people who wanted to explore the area.  As there is no trail, we would be bushwhacking, but it would turn out to not be nearly as bad as the infamous Ramblers bushwhack hikes with Mike Nash.

Huble Farm Family Hike with the Caledonia Ramblers

On the Thanksgiving weekend, I joined the Caledonia Ramblers and the Huble Homestead for the Huble Farm Family hike.  The weather was incredibly good that weekend, and we were surrounded by the beautiful colour of Autumn.  Nineteen people, including some children, showed up for the interpretive hike.

Bike Racks Rant

I'm steaming mad.  The attitude towards cyclists sometimes gets to me.  I usually leave my bike inside, but today, I decided to lock it outside today at work.

This is what I found when I returned.

Boy am I pissed!  I've NEVER seen ANYONE take offence if I lock my bike on their racks.  There is only 2 racks near where I work, and the OTHER one is NOT bolted down, so it's completely useless.   Ok, you have a small rack, but there was no problem for another bike to be locked on it today..(I saw NO other bikes) and what's with the tiny rack anyways? We need more bike racks, what they have is a tiny amount.  Even grocery shopping, it can be tricky finding a place to lock the bike up - the replacement for one that recently rusted out there, is HALF the size of the other one.  What's with that?

But anyways, I think that BMO should put more racks up.. and the other one near another store, should be bolted down, what's with that...?  Why is it not bolted down?  I agree with a friend who said that unbolted bike racks are one of her big pet peeves.  (the other pet peeve was... you guess it - the lack of bike racks!)

I never want to get a car just show people that it is possible to live without a car, around town anyways!

Anyways, sorry about my mumble jumble, just trying to get the angry state of mind cleared out...

Anyone else deal with issues like this?

What? It's November already?! Biking Woes

"What do you mean we are in storage?  How could you!"

What?  What do you mean it is November? I swear that Summer was only a short time ago.

Not that has stopped me from riding around town still, although now I am bundled up. There was a threat of snow today, but none fell.  I know it's coming though!  Even though I've biked in Winter, people can't believe that I am biking in such cold weather.  No different then walking really, just dress for it!

Sadly though, I have no beater bike this year to ride on when the snow finally does fall.  Floyd bit the dust earlier this year, and I haven't found a replacement for her.  Or rather, I found a 'replacement', but I then fell in love with the bike and just can't bear to 'trash' it during the Winter.  Heck, I even put flowers on her so she's not even dressed for it!
