With the weather finally warming a little, the weekend was my first bike ride of the season. I decided to go for a short ride along the bike paths up to the Edward Gardens through Wilket Creek Park and back. Its not very far, only 2.5km or so, but with around 80% of the paths still snow covered, it made for quite an epic ride.
Riding is slushy snow is like riding sand. It makes for a lot of concentration, and you need a constant moderate speed and very light braking and acceleration.
I took along the NEX5n with the Sigma 19mm and shot a few pics. Its a good combination, and nice and light to keep around my neck for the ride.
A word on my steed - my mountain bike is a Orange 5, a hand built bike from the UK. It runs mostly Shimano XT groupset and a Fox Float front fork, so its fun to ride and the components reliable. I try to ride 3 times a week from April to September, mostly in the Don Valley trails, and its a lot of fun.
