Been at UBC for a long time. Been biking for twice as long. Knew there were awesome bike routes all around Point Grey.
But I haven’t gone biking ever, until today!
Length: 11.3km. Time: 4:30-5:30pm.
The downhill from Marine Drive all the way to Jericho Beach was pretty wicked. I was going faster than my maximum peddle speed, and the bike started to shake. “One bump and that would be it for me,” I thought.
And a road biker zoomed past me. The differential speed was at least 20 km/h. I felt I was going about 35-40km/h, so this dude was going close to 60km/h.
Biking on the sand is a different type of wicked fun. You feel like you’re drunk. And any big turn will throw you off balance.
Weather today was gorgeous. At 12 degrees, I can’t hope for better. Ok, maybe a little less windy would be nice.
Loads of memory at this place. Today I am only accompanied by my bike.
On the deck there was a couple dancing. I wish the seagulls were still dancing around them but I was too slow with my camera.
The bike back was totally insane. I didn’t stop once when I climbed up 4th Ave from from Jericho to the forest, but I did get passed by an old dude and a girl.
In any event, UBC after exercise always seems very different. Very refreshed.
Bottom line: Everyone should try jogging or biking for an hour on campus 🙂
