Cycling in Ottawa

We’re sitting here, in the Great White North, bracing for what is supposed to be a pretty big snowfall today and tomorrow. Now, I love winter and snow, but I thought I’d try and warm myself up by looking back to an afternoon of cycling along the Rideau Canal this fall with one of my boys.

The path below basically starts near my house, and runs right down to the heart of the city where the galleries and Parliament Buildings are. I believe it’s only a 7km trip one way, but it’s a beautiful one. I just love the green space around here.

This tree reminded me of a giant hug…

And, this particular area is lined with beautiful old English-style cottages. There’s just so much character and charm throughout this city.

Thanks for touring along with me today 🙂 Did anyone break a sweat?
