    Wendy’s Bike ride from Lonsdale Quay to Dundarave Park to Ghost Bike back to Dundarave and then biking the Green Necklace.(full disclosure I didn’t bike the green necklace)

     

    It was a group of 10 and perhaps we were slow but hey we were there for the sun, the ocean and the scenery. We spent most of the time in West Vancouver.

     

    West Vancouver is Canada’s wealthiest municipality, with an average household net worth of CAD$4,454,424. North Vancouver just next door is the tenth richest. West Vancouver is home to some very large, luxurious and expensive properties and houses.

     

    We had a swell time and even stopped off at Griffin Art Projects, North Vancouver on Spirit Bike Trail for an art exhibit. Wendy gave us a great day.

     

    Ghost Bike| Memorial | A Ghost Bike is a roadside memorial for a cyclist killed or seriously injured on the road. A bicycle is painted all white and locked to a street sign or fence at or near the crash site, usually accompanied by a small sign. They also serve to remind both cyclists of the risks they face and (hopefully) motorists of the live-and-death importance of sharing the road.
