In my Robot Meetings post, Kameleon made a comment about going green and reducing our carbon footprint. Other than really just loving to ride my bike (trivia fact: I rode my bike across Canada in 1993), Autodesk has a bike to work challenge going on where we're tracking the miles per person and per office in an informal and fun kind of competition. As well as tracking mileage, it tracks how we're reducing our carbon footprint by getting to work in greener ways.
My ride is 26km, about 16miles, from home to office so I have the longest ride that anyone is currently admitting to taking. My house and the Toronto office are both a few blocks from the lake so I have a very nice ride, often with cooler breezes. We have the Waterfront Trail in Ontario which goes for about 900km and is a great way to enjoy the outdoors. It's also safer than being on some of the busy, rush-hour streets.
First is a picture of me on my bike - I've got my civilian shoes on here as I was just riding around the neighbourhood.
First thing I want to share is the Humber River pedestrian bridge. I love the look of this bridge.
It's even cooler when you're on the bridge and look up, driving with no hands and feet off the pedals.
While talking about green things, here's a picture of our wind mill.
This one is not a leftover containment fence from the G20 summit, it's for the Toronto Indy, I hope.
And finally, a large Inukshuk.
