It was nice to go along with you, as always. Thanks for the ride, and in future, I hope youโ€™ll consider stopping to deal with issues like insects hitting your eye. Despite your kindness in recommending other people that have bicycle Youtube channels, Iโ€™d rather watch yours.

I run on this trail and I always appreciate a single bell note before cyclists passes me.

I'm so glad they are changeling the corner of Eglington and Bayview. The plaza on the NE corner never had enough parking and the mcdonalds was built like its primary function was a place to sell drugs.

There is also a way into the Don Valley just across the bridge that goes down a steep hill near the police dog training centre if you are ever looking for a way down other than via Overlea.

Glad To hear the bug flushed out. Regarding bell use, it's exasperating here in Florida. When I use it people tend to jump like a rabbit in any direction. I've learned to ring it not too close so I have time to avoid jumpers.

No salmon in the river I would guess because of all the crap in it. Iโ€™m not much of an environmentalist but it does make me sad to see we canโ€™t even keep our rivers free of garbage.

That was so nice when you went along Eglington, I lived on Banff rd 166, so many memories I left Canada in 1992 and settled in Scotland, that neighbourhood was great as a teen.
