UPDATE: For those who can't play the Viddler flash version of the movie below, here's the original MPEG-4 movie

I have a brand new shiny Nokia N95-1 phone for a week and have been tasked with recording my commute.

So here's part of my East Van to Gastown commute from yesterday (I would have done the whole thing but I accidentally forgot to turn the recording on).

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

By Roland Tanglao on June 27, 2007 - 10:06pm

[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 !


  • 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 :-) ! )
