We had to be at the Massey Tunnel
bike shuttle by 9 am and we were in a long way away in Burnaby. Shortly
after sunrise we started cyling down the Adanac Bike route - hilly but light
in traffic. 30 minutes later we turned onto Clark - a heavy thoroughfare

We had an hour and
a half layover in Victoria - just hanging out. Mark, having woken up
as early as I, got back some much needed sleep.
