Ride & Movie Edition: Lego Movie

This is the second edition of a Ride & Movie Summer series. The ride will start at Corus Park/Queen Quay, heading north on the Don River/Parklands bike trail, looping downhill towards the Pape Village, Danforth and Leslieville area, approach the most southern tips of the ride in the Upper Port Lands area, and lastly, our ride will end in the St. Lawrence Market at St. James Park.

Here's the link for the planned route:

After the ride, we will be parking our bikes to grab seats and take-out food for the movie. For those who decide to stay for the movie but not want to snack or grab food, it would be great if you can help save the seats for those who do want to quickly grab something to eat. As well, it might be a good idea to bring something to sit on between the grass and a sweater if it gets cool. It's noted that there might be a snack stand on premise:
