The Ottawa winter has been odd, to say the least. The canal wasn’t open for skating for long; on the other hand, only a week and a half ago we were still skiing in the Gatineau. All of a sudden the weather turned around and Sunday, Ottawa saw 25.1 degrees (as in 77F) . The normals are +4 (40F) max and -7 (20F) minimum for March 18.
We hopped on our bikes and cycled along the canal to the Byward Market, and back along the Ottawa River via Parkdale Ave to Nepean. I have never seen so many bikes out as this Sunday. I am not exaggerating if I tell you it was in the hundreds.
Even CFRA wanted to interview me. I hesitated for obvious reasons but when the interviewer told me she cycles herself, I found my sister in arms. Our Trojan Horse. Our fly on the wall.
Here are a dozen pics from the weekend:
