This ride was crazy! We combined Bike Bums with the Really Like Bikes discord gang.

Ottawa had a major wind storm in May 2022 (up to 190km/h!), and many trees in the greenbelt and all around the city were completely down, including power lines.

This was definitely an adventure ride. We got on/off the bike countless times, got bit by mosquitoes, and rode endless gravel.

Chef-kiss ending by Shirley's bay 🌅

10/10 a very unique ride that may never happen again
