it's been foreeeeeever since i did the mass! i'd had this rotten annoying frustrating day and then i hopped on my bike and rode round this beautiful city and everything was okay again.
we took lion's gate bridge again - so, so beautiful. this is the view north:
and here's cass with the view north-east (and that's her opinion of critical mass):
we rode through stanley park too, with the big big trees. it smelt really good, all earthy and green. i miss that smell.
and here's me in my fairy-wings, helmet-moustache and earwigs. the earwigs are a new toy - they're polyprop material with velcro inside, so you just slide them up the straps of the helmet and they stay there and keep your ears lovely and warm. fabulon.
cass, m and i ducked off after a couple of hours and got gelati (yum!). there was more of a police presence at this ride than others i've been at - on bicycles and motorbikes. it was interesting, not sure how i feel about it. they did some good work corking at intersections and stepped in when motorists tried to ram through the ride.
after i rode home from downtown i was completely wiped but very happy. today i've been doing the "document your day with photos" thing, which has been fun. i'll show you the results soon. it's been a v. busy day, so should be interesting. but that post might have to wait til next week cooooooooos . . . miriam and i are hitting the island tomorrow morning and won't be back for 4-5 days. huzzah! expect photos of water and trees and stuff.
love to all.
