    Today's Humber River Ride

    Our friend Matt rode with us along the Humber River. Today in music history Pink Floyd, Wish You Were Here was released in 1973

    How I wish, how I wish you were here
    We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl

    Remember when you were young,
    You shone like the sun.
    Shine on you crazy diamond.

    You're gonna go far
    You're gonna fly high
    You're never gonna die

    understood, so you are near the lower humber. the entrance to the start of the trails is not to far east from you near the one of the many humber river bridges. there are bicycle routes leading to (and over) those bridges.

    Today's Humber River Ride-800px-toronto_-_on_-_humber_bay_und_humber_bay_arch_bridge.jpg

    the torba lower humber rep is Graham (and he does lead rides).

    i'm the torba rep for the upper humber, though i do sit on other committees that participate in the below tasks in relation to the humber river (watershed).

    -participate in the development of a regional report card that
    addresses the sustainability of communities

    -assist with initiatives that further TRCA’s sustainable communities
    objective such as near urban agriculture

    -assist with habitat regeneration, stewardship and recreational
    activities in the watershed

    -assist with identification, protection, celebration and promotion of cultural and heritage values in the Humber River watershed and
    assist with fundraising for priority projects and community capacity building.

    i will be hosting a ride shortly in the upper humber watershed. the humber has some pretty cool areas and connections of trails. some of these trail connections actually go back 7000 thousand years (or longer) along the historical path of the river.

    There are a few underdeveloped gems for riding along the Humber. This spot is near Bolton and last week we found a cool spot near Kleinburg. We really like exploring. So much potential for new trails

    Singlesprocket summed it up best in his post. He is leading a ride in a couple of weeks. Shoot him a pm if interested
