I haven’t stopped moving for probably over a month now. Maybe two. This struck me as a realization when conversing with a friend, who hasn’t stopped moving either. Body tired beyond exhaustion, and I know it, and yet… I keep going. Perhaps it’s the given weather we are having when you want to simply do a lot outdoors. Seven to eight months in a year where it can be freezing… I am a child of sunshine, the one wrapped with her warm rays. It is a need to keep going.
Often I plan my activities at the start of the day. On most days, I simply pack my backpack, maybe hitch my bike on its rack and vroom vroom I go.
Niakwa to Bishop Grandin Trail
The beauty of unplanned days are the sweet surprises meeting you. Discovering all these bike trails in Winnipeg is like caressing my soul. They’ve been there forever but I always fear of getting lost in the city driving to these bike trails. And guess what? I friggin got lost many times!
Welllington Crescent to Assiniboine Park
Wellington Crescent is closed to motor vehicles on Sundays from 8am-8pm. And it is such a sweet longish ride. But the sweetest?? Is discovering that the road leads to Assiniboine Park/Zoo. The road and the park follows the Assiniboine River. So… ride along the river. The park itself is about 4.5 km². Just keep pedalling… just keep pedalling… 🙂
In between bike riding…
The Winnipeg Fringe Festival ran from July 15-26 where it hosts numerous companies to perform anything, and I mean, anything fringy and crazy at indoor theatres and an outdoor stage. My favourite, of course is outdoors, at the Old Market Square.
And in between bike riding and the Fringe Fest is my practice.
In between two or three classes is my precious inertia 😉
