Toronto Tweed Ride

We went on the inaugural Toronto Tweed Ride on Saturday afternoon. The 1970 Kent Auto-Mini folding bicycle held up well in the circumstances and attracted many favourable comments. The bike has iffy brakes at the best of times, the chrome-steel wheel rims being the limiting factor, particularly in the wet. So I rode with considerable circumspection as the rain came down, being aware of the many cyclists around me and the need to avoid a collision. The street car tracks were another hazard. After a tour of the city centre we finished up at Grange Park in time for tea.
