"Biking is good for the brain, and not bad for the ass either."

The holidays have come and gone, and it’s time to get back into photography posts. I still have so many more photos to share from all the places the most amazing man and I biked through last year. I hope to be done with that before this year’s cycling begins and a new batch of images accumulates.
Below are some shots taken on the Cataraqui Trail; a former Canadian National railway line. The steel rails and wooden ties were removed in 1989, and it’s now a recreational area. There are different sections to walk or bike through; some more rugged than others. This particular one was far from smooth. Not only did our legs get a good workout but so did our butts...bouncing up and down on the seat.
|Maple Leaf Rd. So Canadian, eh?|
|We made a friend as soon as we got on the trail. So cute.|
|This part of the Cataraqui Trail is deserted. And wild.|
|Most of the area consists of overgrown greenery.|
|On this particular day it was hot and humid and full blown bug season.|
|We parked our bikes near this body of water to take a break.|
|This is the smoothest part of the trail. Other sections are much rougher.|
|There are some interesting views along the way.|
|I don't think a helmet will help.|
|We made another cool friend along the way!|
|I'd love to know the story behind this boat. How did it end up being abandoned?|
|The wooded areas provide relief from the sun but not from the bugs!|
I have to say that we were happy to be done with this trail when we got back to our car. Our legs were soar, our butts ached and the bug bites took days to heal!
Have a lovely day, everyone!
