Well... you're going to have to wait till fall.
If not, there's always Mount Royal along the bike path where I go to fool around every so often.
You get some strange looks from other cyclists & runners in summer when you dismount, shoulder & run with the bike for a few feet & remount on your merry way. When you feel the need, those big huge stairs make a wonderful run-up until you run out of gas or there are people in front of you. Ther are also pelnty of room to sprintout at the base of the park at the staue where the bongo drums play on Sundays.
I see you bought your rig at Neron Sports. How much did you pay, if you don't mind me asking?
