The last day of my week long adventure with my brother was spent exploring the beautiful city of Vancouver. Chad, Katie and myself jumped on some single-speed bikes and headed to the other side of the Burrard Inlet.
Crossing the Lions Gate Bridge we left the gloomy North Shore mountains behind us and headed towards the sunshine.
My favourite part of this ride is the shortcut from the bridge down to the Sea-wall. With bikes not meant for anything off-road, it never fails to produce smiles, laughs and the odd tumble.
After rubbing fenders on the Sea-wall with some of the colourful cycling community that make up Vancouver proper, we headed to one of my favourite lunch spots.
If you like Falfel and Shawerma, then the Babylon Cafe is the place to go. No matter which location I go to, the staff is always friendly.
The last stop of the day was the Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar. We ordered their signature sushi-bombs and a couple of pitchers including Central City Brewing's Red Racer IPA.
We made a break for the SeaBus and headed back to the more familiar side of the water.
It was the end of a long day and the end of an even longer week. Jam packed with tons of adventure, we certainly proved that here on the West-Coast, spring is for everything. That said, what was a long week went by far too fast and I'm looking forward to showing off this beautiful place to my next visitors.
