cycling (road/rail trail) 2:50:00 [3] 61.0 km (2:47 / km)

Clear bright sunny day but quite windy and not that warm. I rode the Georgian Trail up past Thornbury into a strong and chilly nw wind of the water. I turned around at Lora Bay, stopped for a snack in Thornbury and rode back to town with a fun tailwind.

cycling (rail trail) 1:20:00 [3] 30.0 km (2:40 / km)

Not an inspiring day out there today. Grey, chilly, windy. But you never feel worse for going so I met Susie and we rode to Stayner and back on the Train Trail. And as usual I felt better for getting out there:)

mtbike (3 Stage) 1:30:00 [3] 20.0 km (4:30 / km)

Goose was meeting Scott to run on the 3 Stage trails so I took m and bumbled my way around some of the trails - some I had no business being on. Mostly because its not marked so I tried to stay on "blue" trails but ended up "black" ones where I walked my bike over rock piles etc. It was beautiful bright day and pretty in there under the hardwood canopy - but none too warm!! I wore a windbreaker and was just comfortable. I found a lovely winding pine trail but after an hour the thumbs and wrists were done. I headed down the 2nd line and out to 19 and into a mighty icy wind. It was freezing flying down the escarpment. Got back onto 6th St. to town and onto the bike trail home.

trail Run (Pretty River) 55:00 [3] 6.0 km (9:10 / km)

Should have gone a bit earlier - it was very hot and humid by late morning. Goose wanted to do a long run so we drove up to the Pretty River Rd. Bruce Trail access. He did a long run, I did a shorter one on my own. Some on the Bruce, some Pretty River side trail, some snowmobile/ATV trail under the gorgeous hardwood canopy for the most part, which was relatively cool. There was quite a bit of wind too. Still some trilliums but they won't last much longer. I jogged most of the time, ski striding up big hills, and walking down. When I got back to the car I got on my bike to ride home.
12 PM

cycling (road/rail trail) 50:00 [3] 25.0 km (2:00 / km)

Fun ride home:). The southwest wind and general descent made for a fast ride. Stayed on West Church Side road into Nottawa and on to 6th Line. Then took the rail trail home into town, grabbed my swim suit and rode to the lake for a quick dip. It was ice but felt so good!

10 AM

cycling (road/rail trail) 2:00:00 [3] 42.0 km (2:51 / km)

Beautiful clear bright day. Met (legally!!) Connie and Dave O. for a ride up the dreaded 6th St. extension. That hill is sooo hard. I was breathing so hard and just barely moving forward for what seemed like forever. I got very hot too but once we were at the top and riding along rolling hills I cooled off. We came across 4th Line to a gravel road I don't know that ended up at Grey Rd.40. At the bottom we got onto the Georgian Trail and rode back to town.
Spectacular views of the Beaver Valley and Georgian Bay on a breezy day with lilacs in full force. Great way to celebrate Victoria Day:)

6 AM

cycling (road/rail trail) 45:00 [3] 15.0 km (3:00 / km)

It was bright and breezy when I woke up and I felt like a wee ride. So I took the trails around town in the sunshine, along with a fair few other morning people walking dogs. running, biking, paddling etc. As I finished the clouds had rolled in and it was pretty grey with a notable drop in temperature. So I was glad I went early.
9 AM

canoeing (Nottawasaga) 1:30:00 [3]

Misty moisty morning by 8:30! Quite grey and foggy on our way over to Klondike Park where met up with Bash and 'Bent. Not quite so crowded at the boat launch as it was yesterday. We paddled downriver for 3 km then back up past the put-in to Jack's Lake. It was busy upriver with fisher people for sure but still peaceful and lovely. The actual rain held off till the drive home and stopped when we got there so we had an actual, legal, distanced social gathering of 4 for coffee in our backyard ! :)
