Puddle Jumping

A final ride for days off which had to be done given the crappy state of rides whilst on days off. 

It was a classic Mill Creek start on an all paved route which was extremely busy for a Wednesday afternoon. Thank you covid and spring break.

The highlight was obviously riding the Moots again. Going from shit bike to Moots is a nice switch this time of year.

It was Mill Creek out and across the river on Edmonton's most boring bridge, the James Mcdonald. Well the Henday bridges are pretty crappy but they have that cool crossing for bikes below. The James Mcdonald is just a sad state of affairs when it comes to cool bridges in the city. I know this cause I never see Instagrammers hanging out with their phones trying to get the perfect shot. 

Unlike the new Walterdale...

The ride was top notch despite being super tired trying to switch back to days as it all starts again tomorrow, with Easter happening I will be off two days early which makes next set off a nine day set off of pure awesome. I really hope we make the best use of it.

I flirted with riding downtown for a bit but retreated back across the mighty Menzies and up into the urban jungle for a ride along Saskatchewan drive when the 76 ave bike lane took me pretty close to my Jeep.
