Square2Square and “car free” on Sunday
The MHBPNA Blog attended this event in 34 degree heat (!!) to show total dedication for reporting about our community. In an effort to combine this with taking in the last concert at the Waterloo Jazz festival, I rode my bike from down town Kitchener to Waterloo starting at 2:20.
The event was from 11 to 3 so some folks were packing up. Not a lot of activity in either down town so most people probably passed through earlier in the day. Some nice items were for sale from independent craft people and artists.
It was fun riding on the reserved lane along King street between the two city cores but it did not really feel “car free” since three lanes were open, and cars were crossing at all intersections as well with police monitoring them. So there were plenty of cars on this “car free” Sunday.
The highlight for me was watching a few minutes of the “bike polo” game in front of the Bauer Lofts area. Who knew there is even a club with a website?
