|University hill straight ahead, & there is lots of snow up there still.|
Since I saw that the roads south of the Downtown were clear while I was doing a Home Depot run yesterday, I felt that it was time to do a longer ride. I did the University hill/College Heights loop. It was a total of 20 kms, which is the most that I've done all Winter. I was surprised how easy it was going up University Hill, even though I do a little bit of climbing to work each day. But nothing like that hill! I keep more in shape then I thought.
|Except for some wet spots, road is clear, albeit lots of dirt on sides.|
|Prince George...I live down there somewhere.|
|This is where we snowshoed and saw the deer in Winter, in these woods nearby.|
I stopped by the Westgate mall and bought a rope perch for the birds as one had broken and some more mini-clothpins to hang my Postcrossing postcards with on my wall. I also enjoyed a small iced capp from Tim Hortons, a Canadian tradition. Yum! Guiltless too.

I returned downtown and I decided to pick up some well deserved beer from the local Liquor store. I picked up one of my favourites, Granville Island Kitsilano Maple Cream Ale. Tasty! Nice end to an awesome bike riding day!
|And I didn't drop or break any on ride home.|
