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 :-) ! )
