We know we have escaped a bitter, snowy and icy winter in Ontario but it has been frustrating using the gym bikes rather than hitting the trails as much as we would have liked. Fingers crossed for a more favourable March.

We were lucky to watch the heron and fish "performance" from our patio.
We also had another strike of luck when we went riding one day knowing that we may get soaked under the predicted showers. The rain began on our drive to the bike paths and we decided to pick up our groceries before rather than following our ride. Drizzle was still upon us as we departed the grocery store parking lot. As we parked and unloaded the bikes, the rain stopped and we saw no more showers until our drive home!
And on another outing, we unloaded the bikes to discover that Chris had a flat tire. When he examined it further, he found the hole in the tube right beside the air valve. While he was applying a patch kit, we made plans to drive back a short way to a bike shop for a replacement as he did not want to get caught with another flat miles from the car. A couple pulled in near us and began their prep before bike riding and he came over to see if he could help us. By crazy luck, he had a spare tube that was exactly the size we needed. Chris popped it in, filled up the air and off we rode, thanks to Bob from Michigan!
