Roland's Bike Share Adventure Part 1 - Gastown to Granville Island to East Van

Roland's Bike Share Adventure Part 1 - Gastown to Granville Island to East Van

[Cross posted from Change Everything]

I have lived in Vancouver since July 12, 1998 but I never biked from Gastown to Granville Island to East Van !

Impressions:

  • Columbia Street is a mess. The Carrall Street Greenway will fix this methinks
  • As I said to a Vancouver Sun reporter, I want it to be like the bike paths in southern Germany where I lived for 3.5 years. No motorized vehicles because there will always be accidents when the two share the same space.
  • Canada Line construction is omnipresent and disrupting every mode of transit!
  • Biking is the best way to learn about a city next to walking.

I took 80 photos of my journey today (yes I am crazy enough to take cameraphone pictures everywhere :-) !)

Here are my favourites (guess where they are :-) ! )

Those are nice pictures, too - but you obviously stopped
far too many times for a rest along the way :)
The object of this exercise is Keep Pedalling !!

It ain't what you do, it's the way that you do it...
But where does this leave you for commenting on those
@#$%^&* car drivers who are multitasking in gridlock ?
One of these days, I have to go downstairs to the bike
locker and see if mine's still getting lonely :)
