Never Mind the Bullocks...

    Morgan and I had one of the sweetest bike dates ever today. Seriously, it was out of hand.

    After work I took the bus to MoTay's house, where we began our two-wheeled adventures. We then zipped our way through the Downtown East Side until we reached Canada Place and the sea wall, in time to see two very large cruise ships preparing to disembark.

    After zipping along the seawall and discovering some sweet new trails in Stanley Park near the Lion's Gate Bridge, we found the trail we'd been looking for beneath the bridge that I'd spied on Sunday and got to shredding. First shot (this one), we got exactly what we came there for and did one more just to make sure. straight outta the camera and one of my favorite photos that I've ever taken. So pumped on this one.

    After high-fiving over our awesomeness, we went up to Prospector's Point for some World Famous Ice Cream.

    While enjoying our delicious ice cream, and watching two huge cruise ships and one cargo ship coast out of the inlet under the bridge, a raccoon walked out right in front of us! Awesome!

    Then we cruised down another sweet trail we'd never been down before through the windfall area, before hitting the seawall at Third Beach again. Then we enjoyed the sun and sea all the way back around to Yaletown, where we enjoyed some delicious beer and saw some illegally short shorts before rolling down Granville back to the seabus.

    Seriously - one of the best days ever!

      This shot reminds me of some of the early scenes from the mountain biking film 'Life Cycles', a film I loved for it's camera work.

      Great angle! :)

      Thanks! It's a great movie, I thought the same thing when I finally saw the movie. I'm looking forward to trying it again in the snow if it actually snows in the city this year :)
