cycling in the park...

The weather this November has been stellar, but shhhhh, I don't want to jinx anything.  Now that Remembrance Day (week) is over and appropriate tributes paid to our hero's (one being my almost 90 year old father), blogging will resume.

Last Sunday was another primo day, so I loaded up the Iron Horse and drove to Fitzroy Provincial Park.  Lily and Ruby watched as we drove out of the driveway without them.



It was a gorgeous day!




Sunny and Warm!




If I'm really quiet, she won't see me....




this is a really big hill!





what?  dogs are okay, but not Martini's?
What about beer??




the Iron Horse can't read...





Loaded up to head back home.


Life's fun if you don't weaken,


Lily

You need a little sidecar on the Iron Horse for your feline friend. Now that would be a picture. :)

very cool! Glad you were able to get out there and enjoy the nice day. We've been getting rained on since monday, and it's driving me nuts.

That looks like a lovely place for a fall bike break.

Groover said...

Love how Lily sits right next to Ruby. Trouble does that, too. Trouble just loves bikes. I secretly suspect him to ride our bikes when we are at work. :-) Beautiful autumn day and I'm glad you got out to ride.

What gorgeous weather for your ride! Thanks for posting the photos, I can take part in your ride while in my pyjamas at home.

I think they mean for the Iron Horse not to go down the stairs. You have some great paths there are they open for cross country sking when the (shutter) snow comes?

It looks like you went for an absolutely beautiful ride!! I can't believe martinis are not allowed though. Sheesh!!

I've been trying to get a few outdoor rides in before the snow really flies here, but the wind is such a battle!
