Coldest Day of the Year Ride #Toronto

Extreme cold weather alerts on Jan 30 and 31, 2015 suggested that this bike ride was taking place on an appropriate day. So an a partly sunny Saturday bicyclists gathered at Trinity Bellwoods Park and began their frigid journey just before noon and made their way along city streets until they arrived at Peacut Square at Metro Hall.
Joe and I caught up with the crew at Metro Hall after most of the riders had left the building because we had the Coldest Day of the Year run, carrying cameras while trying to not fall in the snow, Run,
"Celebrate and support winter cycling by joining us for the Coldest Day of the Year Ride, a short, comfortable, car-free group ride departing from Trinity Bellwoods Park.  Meet at 11:45am on Saturday Jan 31st at the southern gates of Trinity Bellwoods Park. We're heading to Metro Hall, followed by some refreshments at the Elephant and Castle at King and Simcoe."
The dead of winter, which is a major bummer of a festival put on by Mother Nature, takes place over ten days starting from January 21. In Toronto this just means you need a few extra layers to bike around the city, because I think no matter the weather, you can always find someone on two wheels riding somewhere.
