|Bicycle with the new tires on|
After work, I decided that it was time to invest in a new pair. I wasn't sure what the bike shop would say about it, but when I told them I was getting lots of flats, they agreed that it was time for a new set. I had just over 5000 kms (just over 3000 miles) on the old pair. Those tires came with the bike when I bought it, and so probably were a cheap $18 tire.

|Crossing the Fraser River|
It has been so nice out this weekend, that I thought I'd give it another go at geocaching around town with my bike. I biked out to the BCR Industrial Site, just South of the City. This is where the trains go through, load and unload.
On my way out, a group of cyclists speeding away in their lycra and fast bikes, went past me. I imagine that they are from the local cycling club.

|While exploring Quesnel, we found some cool Murals.|
What better to do then to have some Geocaching fun and hit the road at the same time. I've been itching to do a little road trip somewhere, and this helped sooth the itch for a while.

There is not much written on it, basically the sender hopes that the card is alright. It's wonderful! I wonder how easy it is to find bicycle themed postcards? I wonder how many more will have a bicycle theme? I love surprises!
This is my second postcard from Taiwan. It's been a good postcard week so far. I look forward to checking what's in my mailbox daily, if I got to do errands, I tend to go home first to check and see if I got anything interesting.

Thank you Nolleke!! I sent her a special card out that I think she'll like. :)
Here is the bike stamp on the back... I would love to visit there one day, it seems the country is in love with bicycles.

|Snow is melting slowly|
Some of big potholes that I was biking by have been temporally fixed, so I don't have to worry about trying to miss them. I should take some photos of the potholes that I have seen in my travels. :)
No postcrossing postcards arrived this week, but the one I sent to Brazil, FINALLY made it! It took 34 days to get there, but when I look at the other recent cards that the person had received, mine didn't take too long. There was one card that took 60 days to travel to Brazil from the USA, can you imagine? I just sent out one to a city in Russia that is 500 kms south of Moscow. According to the person's stats, it'll take 38 days to get there from Canada. It would be nice if it got there as quickly as the one I sent to Moscow did, but I just have to accept however long it takes.
Just as life is slower on a bicycle (no so fast paced), so is snail mail versus e-mail. We are so used to instant replies, with cellphones and emails, that we forget patience. Snail mail and bicycles I think, teach us to slow down a bit..be patient and not expect things to rush around quickly. You get a chance to smell the roses. I guess the same could be said about the slow melting snow, it's certainly not rushing to melt away.
