Bike Route – Vancouver

The perfect day and the perfect guide led us to undertake a 40 km bike ride past our Vancouver son’s bicycle infrastructure projects down to Jericho Beach (where we took the feature photo from).

Our son rides a bike to and from work and all around Vancouver. In fact, he has no car and my thoughts on this is why would you need one in Vancouver. Between pedestrian and cyclist accessibility and the mass transit options, a car is a serious expense and liability.

We did learn that in order to keep up with our son, we either need to be in top shape and riding a tandem bike or be on E-bikes. We chose E-bikes this day as there are two rental shops nearby where we were staying and we had not been cycling for some 5 months (snow).

Without further ado, I give you the photos from the day…

  1. Youth and good knees. I bought my wife and E-Bike and now when we cycle at home, the pressure is all on me. Not a bad thing when you want to stay in shape. Cheers. Allan
