The day before our first official day of the summer season we took Calvin out on a trial ride over the pedestrian bridge to Ward’s Island. Great weather–our heat wave finally broke–but we worked up a sweat on the ramps. Calvin is a changed man compared to a week ago when he had never ridden a bike before; although he still had some trouble on the inclines he was cruising the island like a champ. We saw some sculpture installations, a native plant garden and the car and train bridges over Hell’s Gate. Looking forward to a great season!
