My 1 year anniversary of bicycling to work

By Roland Tanglao on June 25, 2008 - 10:16am

Almost exactly one year ago, I started bicycling to work thanks to VanCity and its Bike Share program. Now I bicycle to work 3-5 times a week rain or shine and am a small 'e' bicycling enthusiast. Really if you are reasonably fit and live and work within in the city of Vancouver there's no reason NOT to cycle to work. More reflections later, but here's my bicycle route that I took today to go to the BEST Pancake Breakfast.

Vancity Bike Share wrapup - Thanks, Suggestions and a Movie

By Roland Tanglao on September 5, 2007 - 1:01am


  • Thanks to Vancity for having the Bike Share Program.
  • Thanks to Richard for joining up because without Richard joining I wouldn' t have joined and got back into biking. I have reactivated my Villiger Silvretta from Switzerland that I bought in Germany and am happily biking to work on it two or more times a week.
  • And thanks to Nokia for giving me the free Nokia N93 phone which I used to take 502 photos from the Vancity Bike: here are the 10 flickr sets of photos: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Vancity Bike Share Launch

Vancity Bike Share: Take it.  Ride it.  Pass it on.

[Cross-posted from my personal weblog.]

This morning, Roland, Karen and I went to the launch of Vancity Bike Share, to wait in line and eat pancakes served by Libby Davies, Gregor Robertson, and Shane Simpson, all BC MLA and pick up my shiny red, Vancity logo-emblazoned one-speed cruiser plus non-branded red bike lock and non-branded red helmet. And a Vancity logo-emblazoned red t-shirt. Pretty good score for writing a 98-word blog post. After three weeks of going who-knows-where with the bike, I'll be handing it off, likely to Karen. Photos forthcoming from me, but Roland already has a set on Flickr. This will be my first ever bike ride home from work, so I'll have to dig deep for my signals and etiquette, having lived in the Lower Mainland for 10 years but having ridden a bike two times at most in that timespan.
