My most recent bike trip to Vancouver, BC

I hadn't realized that you were coming to Vancouver or I'd have rode with you along the way.
It's a great path along the new bridge. I love it! There are some really nice things happening with bike infrastructure in Vancouver. Much of it the result of the lobby groups here as well as wanting to look "green" for the Olympic visitors. Also it was realized over twenty years ago that making a city operate around cars was a bad thing and would lead to dead downtowns like some cities had.

Good to hear from you. I forget names easily so I'm not sure who you are to look up if I go back later this summer. I did meet an interesting person on roadside near Whiterock. He was taking bus back downtown with his bike. Yes, the alternative transport planning in Vancouver is quite good. They are trying to do something about global warming.

Oh I met you in Bellingham last year with Hagrid and some others.

Yes, now I remember you. Saw your pictures of Canada Line. It was good meeting you at Haggrid's. I hope I get up to Vancouver maybe one more time this year. I'll try to look you up. Hope I can find the email you sent when you visited Bellingham.
