A Special Ride

September 4, 2014 in biking, Exercise, Outdoor Activity

My bike ride tonight was a little different than usual and included a special message carved out through the city using my GPS bike computer. It’s my beautiful wife’s birthday this week and I dedicated this ride to her. Always so giving, always so supportive, always in my heart. Happy Birthday Dawn!

About the ride: I plotted my route on a paper print out of a map I had with me on the ride but I had my doubts about whether I could actually pull this off given the limited time that I had and whether it would look clear enough to read. The one thing I had going for me was the weather which was absolutely brilliant today in Vancouver. You can see that I turned my GPS on just before crossing the Burrard Street bridge which, in hindsight, I probably should have kept off until I got to Trafalgar and 4th Ave. There were certain points where I got a little disoriented and went a bit off track (just before the Y, the inner part of the B, and the D – A – Y were supposed to be a little bigger but I was starting to run out of time to get to an appointment at Hemlock and Broadway which is about where I stopped my GPS. All in all I thought it worked out well and definitely all worth it!

Happy Birthday Dawn!
