This summer, I made a promise to my boyfriend: We’d go biking together. The thing is that I hadn’t been on a bike in at least 10 years. I was secretly terrified and kept putting it off until it felt silly to do so. There was no way I would dare to ride on the city streets, even on the well designed bike paths. We found the perfect spot for me to feel comfortable as I straddled the rental bike, looking like a little kid learning to ride for the first time: the Musée plein-air de Lachine (Lachine outdoor museum).
