(yes I need a new windshield, thank you mr/mrs smarty pants)
|Capilano. still under a blanket of snow|
It was less then a month ago when I ventured down to the Science park for a spin in the hills. I was turned away from the regular trails due to a large amount of snow. I was able to cross the bridge this time and ended up in Rundle park skirting over sections of ice shouting to no one in particular "HA HA HA, I`M NOT GOING TO GIVE INTO THE ICE AND PUT ON THE STUDS AGAIN! I`M DO..." That`s when I wiped out.
Just kidding. I never wiped out. It was nasty in the morning though. Black ice was everywhere making going into a corner a tad risky. I couldn`t stop thinking about how at this time pretty much every year when all the trails are pretty much open. April 16th has always been my official trail opening day. I even bought an ice cream cake to celebrate the occasion one year. Hmmm..... Dry trails. It still seems so far off right now.
|on the way up to Forest Heights, lots of snow from recent storms|
I have had two days off already and finally ventured on the bike. Recent snowstorms quenched any desire for me to head out. It`s been a long Winter. At least the paved trails on the north side of the river were pretty much snow free. I climbed up out of the valley and rode through the residential streets when more police tape caught my eye. Oh, that house! "That`s been in the paper" I thought to myself. I believe that makes 19 murders so far this year. Yes, It`s time to round up all the fucktards. Something in this city has got to start changing.

|I made the right decision|
|That`s 19. |
