During the summer months, I bike to work almost every day. It’s my favourite thing about our current living situation & I hope it can remain my primary commute for a long time.

This morning, as I was riding towards downtown, I came up behind a father & his son on their bikes. The boy was no older than 10 & looked to be accompanying his dad on his morning commute. As I got closer, I overheard him tell his son to move over & let us pass – there were two bikers ringing their bells & itching to go. I overtook them last, just in time to hear the father tell his son, “Now look right, this is the best part!”

I smiled to myself as I looked right too, catching a glimpse of Prince’s Island & the Bow. It was already looking to be a gorgeous day.

That was definitely the best part of my morning commute.
