Rob and I went on a lovely long bike ride today… we rode trails, we both had a minor wipe out, we had mini-races — he beat me on the trails, I beat him on the road… we rode to Assiniboine Park and then to FortWhyte Alive and then through Assiniboine Forest and back home. We saw deer, flocks of geese, a herd of bison and a horse. We found an awesome tree house, plus bench seating and a checkerboard made out of tree stumps.
