We are having a great time touring around Vancouver. There are so many people here! We’ve for sure been around more people in the past two days than the past 3 months! It was a great call to get bikes before we got here, as it is an amazingly bike friendly city, with tons of bike paths and separate lanes. A few pics from the past 2 days…
Our sweet new rides!
View of Vancouver Harbor, with the Lions Gate Bridge. Yesterday and today we biked across the bridge to town from our campground. Directly on the other side is Stanley Park, an amazing 1,000 acres of bike trails, hiking paths, beaches, gardens and more.
Including giant redwood trees!
Today, after riding through the park and down the waterfront, we locked up the bikes and walked to Chinatown for Dim Sum.
We feasted on pork buns, scallion pancakes, dumplings, shrimp noodles, sesame balls, radish cake (more like steamed goo) and fried sticky rice. It was all a great idea till we had to walk a mile back to our bikes and then ride 4 miles to get home. Many people pedaled passed me during my climb up the bridge in the bike lane!
