A few summers back Steve and I biked to Burlington for their annual Ribfest (Canada’s largest!). I remember how the bike ride was a bit tricky once we hit the industrial heartland of the steel mills and entered into the highway of what is Burlington St. east (now with the bike bridge over the QEW this should be no sweat). Not to mention the lift bridge got stuck and there was about an hour delay to cross the water to get to Burlington.
Mmmmm ribs. Ribfest was awesome and well worth the bike ride and wait. It was packed, smoky, and delicious.
A good sampling of ribs, pulled pork, and beer by the lake, in the sun, is a fantastic way to end off the summer. Oh, sigh..
