November 7th

Although we posted no photographs of our rides after August 9th, our bike ride continued until November 7th but eventually, all good things come to an end. All the park trails between Scarborough and Ajax are now officially closed, and  as we are now into the fall season where the weather is unpredictable, it is the right time to terminate our weekly bike ride.

This program was enjoyable and accomplished its objectives, which were to improve the fitness levels of all and promote camraderie between us. We would like to thank all those who have participated in making our program the success it was.

Going forward this program can become an annual event
