|Candy Ass Ride|
I'd like to say that a number of brave souls showed up but with the weather being so mild, it didn't take bravery to join the "Jingle Ride". Coreen who organized the ride expected some winter cycling newbies to join us, but all of us were winter riders. So without much ado, we filed out of BikeWorks under the glare of CITY TV's television lights. They planned to broadcast a story about the ride on today's Breakfast Television.
Our first stop was not far away in a residential area on the southside. The display of lights surrounding the whole house was so over-the-top that we felt sorry for all the neighbours whose fine displays would have garnered accolades under normal circumstances, but paled in comparison to this one house. Neon palm trees, Santa's doffing hats, reindeer twirling above the garage, arches made from candy canes and too many other colourful radiance's to mention.

Most of the group had packed skates along with their gear and it was with welcome relief that we all warmed up in the skating shack at the Legislature and munched on Christmas candy and power bars while Alex and Brett marvelled at the heated outhouses that had been installed around the rink. With heated seats no less!
