commuting on two wheels
We set off from one of our favourite spots, the Square at Olympic Village, and rode the seawall towards Kitsilano Beach. Coralie decided she wanted to lead, so her and her friend, Nora, took the front of the pack for most of the journey. Now that the younger ones are so confident riding on their own, us adults got a chance to catch up and get to know each other better while we rode. I found out that a fellow parent at school who I've been chatting with for the past year and a half has quite a bit in common with me and my family. We swapped restaurant tips, as they are also a vegetarian family, and talked about commuting throughout the city on our bikes. It was just a great example of how nice Conversational Cycling can be, just cruising at a slower speed, enjoying a ride along the water and learning new things about each other!

Overall, it was another successful journey. Hopefully the weather continues to cooperate and we can get at least a couple more rides in before the end of the year!
