I went out for a bike ride this afternoon since the weather was beautiful. I decided to do some exploring and see where certain trails went and attempt to find the part of the Transcanada Trail that runs through Waterloo. I had no problems finding the transcanada trail. It’s actually kind of funny how I sometimes forget that I’m so close to farms and wilderness. You can drive North, West or East for about 10 minutes and be out of Waterloo.
Now back to the story. On the way back I had no problems retracing my steps until I got to this small subdivision. I rode around for about 20 minutes trying to figure out where I was and how to get out of it. Eventually I figured out that I could have made it out in about 5 minutes if I just remembered one important thing. The streets in Waterloo make no sense. Streets go North to South and then go West to East and vice versa.
I eventually made it home. It was a good ride. I’m a little sore right now, since it was only my second ride this season, but it’s a good hurt.
