The winter of 2009-2010 was relatively snow-free and we were able to ride our bikes almost the whole time. On Wednesday 17 March 2010, we thought it would be fun to see the difference in the banks of the Humber from last year's massive ice jam.
As usual, we entered the Humber River Trail via St. Marks Road, rode south on a completely clear path, without a sign of snow anywhere and quickly reached the spot where the pedestrian trail that runs parallel to the bike/hike trail was inaccessible the year before and a sign had been pulled down by the ice.
Of course the sign was back upright and there was a forlorn rusted bicycle locked to the pole. (Please click on image to see closer view of the sign.)
And in no time at all, we reached the area that had been entirely blocked by ice the previous year. Looking South: (compare the view: March 2009)
