I was surprised to discover (but only because I have the memory of a large Koi) that I am quite fond of all sorts of people whom I've never met. One of them kindly asked me to share more photos of places I ride.
So OK. Here you go!
This is one of my favourite local routes because it's a super cycle friendly, stress free ride. It's a little over 60 k or nearly 40 m when all is said and done. This is a perfect morning`s ride, because most of it is uninterrupted riding along painted bike routes, without much in the way of starts and stops, and it's mostly free from parked cars, too. It`s the kind of thing Snob might call a bikecycle highway. It`s a great place to test your limits, too. We rode it the day before Canadian Thanksgiving, right before the weather turned all mittenish on us.
I never could colour inside the lines. We actually stayed on the road for the most part, and we didn't, in fact, swim the mighty Fraser, despite my inept tracings See that great throbbing blob of green half way along the route? That's Pacific Spirit Regional Park, and there are miles and miles of trails inside. I haven't personally shot any video, but here's something a bit retro for you to check out...
As you will often find in this town, the scenery was absolutely divine during our morning's adventures...
(This from the parking lot at Spanish Banks. The photo sucks, but you get the idea.) It was a picture perfect day, anyway.
The parking lot at Iona Beach.
I was babbling along as per usual this week, when suddenly there I was, out carousing and laughing myself silly very late into the night, burning the candle at both ends, etc. It was brilliant.
Now I can`t string a thought together, let alone a proper sentence...
