For my peace of mind I would replace it, it is nearing the wear bars plus the age. Remember the cost of a tire is a lot less than the cost of a hospital. Just my 2 cents.

I would put it up on the center stand and spin it a full round and look carefully
I had a tire that looked like that on one side and cord showing on the opposite side

to me there looks to be a weird cut in the bottom left of your picture that shows the tread
right even with the Canadian Maple Leaf thing laying on the floor

I think you should have no problem from the pictures you posted for your ride, just check the whole tire for signs of any cords or other abnormalities and you should be good to go. I did not mean to scare you into not riding just answered your question about replacement, sorry.

I would change out the tires as soon as you can get it done. With the bike being a 15 the tires were probably made in 14. They are at least 6 years old. Sunshine doesn’t do rubber compounds any favors. I am paranoid about tires but I do have reasons. I don’t like running old tires.
