Ticket to Ride Tuesday


I went out for a bike ride last night

about 8 p.m. and it felt like 3 a.m. in the streets as no cars around, surreal. I am worried for people here and my country.  I remain optimistic though and hope you are also wherever you live.

I hope you enjoy my simple post today, sharing photos I have taken while enjoying cycling in my city.  It’s a pleasure for me to take pictures of the lake as it changes in seasons, times of the day and so on.   I will do the pedaling but you have a Ticket to Ride.

One nice note to share is that some of my neighbours

are putting hearts in their yards and in their windows, and hanging Canadian flags outside.  Later this afternoon I will hang a flag outside on my balcony also.

I see it as evidence of the solidarity together here, proof that we are all still here, and riding out a quiet storm together.

Thanks for visiting! – David

    Still a bit chilly here in southern Ontario for a ride, yesterday we had wet snow😏. Hoping it will warm up a wee bit over the next week so that I can get outside to ride. Such beautiful photos David! Thank you for sharing 💕

      Hi Lynn, except when there was snow on the roads I managed to ride all winter. Some days it took a while to warm up after I got home, a long while. Riding is so therapeutic for me, I hope your snow is gone soon so you can get your bike out.

    Gorgeous photos Dave, I just love that lake. The lighting was perfect on your evening ride. I love them all, especially the first one in the group photos. With your bike there, and its lights on, but the tree in the middle and that beautiful shimmering color of light on the water, great photo.
    I went for a walk today and noticed hearts in peoples windows of there homes. I did not see them the day before. So nice to see.

    It’s eerily silent all over the world and in my city of 17 million souls it is scary to see just two people on the road!
