C is for Cycling

When I moved from Calgary, Alberta in 2007 I have become a full time cyclist. The first winter in Victoria I continued to ride my mountain bike but with no fenders/mud guards I soon began shopping for a new bike. In 2008 I bought an Opus hybrid bicycle which came with fenders and I added lights, a rear rack, water bottle cage, odometer and kick stand.

Me & my Opus bicycle.

One of my favorite cycle routes in Victoria is the approximately 40km route between my apt and the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal. Early in the season I frequently put my bike on Bus 72 or 70 (all of Victoria's public buses are equipped with bike racks) and ride the bus 1 hour out to the ferry terminal. Then I can spend my day cycling back home often on the Lochside Trail into downtown and then via Fairfield and Foul Bay Road home.
