4th Toronto Girls’ Cupcake Ride Report

so pretty

Murphy’s weather law seems to be in full effect for each cupcake ride so far!

Being burned the week before (I called a rain date based on a 10-15mm rain forecast when there wasn’t a drop of precipitation that day) and with the encouragement from other riders, I did not postpone the 4th Toronto Girls’ Cupcake Ride. What with a forecast of isolated showers and less than 5mm of rain, even if we did get wet, it wouldn’t be that much … or so I thought.

The morning of the ride, the skies were grey but the weather was dry and things seemed promising; however, by noon the rain was pretty heavy and didn’t look like it was letting up. Less than 5mm of rain? It was more like 20mm and my heart was filled with guilt for the second weekend in a row.

After a quick back and forth chat with Ms. L confirming our attendance despite the weather, I created a makeshift raincoat out of a garbage bag and headed out to the Cupcakery in a pretty heavy rain.

I’m happy to report that 3 lovely ladies came out despite the rain and the rain stopped for our ride down to Kensington Market!

After enjoying some delectable cupcakes at the beautiful Cupcakery – my red velvet was the best I’ve had so far – we headed down to Kensington Market. As Ms. L wrote to me later, despite the police presence everywhere ‘we were happily oblivious to all the mayhem’ while enjoying our cupcakes at Wanda’s Pie in the Sky.

One little blemish to the really fun ride was that I broke my own ride rules and got into a shouting match with a driver and some nosey pedestrians. But again, I met some really wonderful ladies and we had a really great ride!

The next ride will be announced shortly!
