why did i not think of this before :D
the streets were deserted. baseline, woodroffe, centrepointe, thornbury, all of them. there were some cab drivers near Baseline Station and they gave me a funny look as i zoomed past them at 1:11 in the morning. other than that, there were no people outside. and i got to see Mars shinning brightly up in the sky so high
i wanted to bike in the small 30cm deep artificial pond in front of the Ben Franklin Place / Central Library but i heard some guards, presumably, unlocking the main doors as i made two circles around it so i biked away. i shall try again tomorrow !
now that i am sufficiently tired, i’ll take another stab at this much fabled activity called sleeping.
we were supposed to bike from Baseline to Dominion and back. however, after a hat and a washroom break, we decided to explore a bit more to the east. the bikepath we were following took us to Port Champlain bridge… which takes one from Ottawa to Hull.
reached home more than 8+ hours after the departure time; Home -> Baseline -> Lincoln Fields -> [email protected] -> Ottawa River Parkway -> Champlain Bridge to Hull -> Hull Riverside -> [email protected] -> Hull Riverside -> Royal Alexandra Bridge -> Ottawa River Pathway -> Baseline -> Home //biking in pitch black through rows and rows of trees and foliage on both sides can get quite unnerving.. especially if a firefly decides to suddenly light up in front of you..
both ended up skipping classes but looking back, i think it was worth it. ottawa is beautiful. i’ve lived here since ’97 but never had i seen these bikepaths, experienced nature like this, or biked to hull before ;)
oh and another thing. no more carbonated drinks from today, the 20th of June, to September something something. promise!!111
