30 Days of Biking – Day 23 : Riding to Théâtre de l’Île and the Royal Oak on Slater

Rode to a couple of locations on day 23 of 30 Days of Biking. First foray had me pedalling to Le Théâtre de l’Île (blue line on the map below). Second one was to the Royal Oak in the Minto building for the annual Spring meeting of the Centretown Garden gardeners (red line).

Théatre de l’Ile is a wonderful performance space in Gatineau. More about the theatre in this post.

The Centretown Community Garden is located at the corner of Lisgar and Lyon. This year’s annual Spring meeting for gardeners was held just a few blocks away at the Royal Oak on Kent St. I never knew this pub existed, most likely because I never bike down Kent. It’s a three lane one way street with no bike infrastructure and very speedy traffic heading north.

The entrance to the pub is half a block north of Laurier so I walked my bike back to the Laurier Bike Lane to get home.
