Same.

I usually plan my routes out as well and end up going to some place like a community centre or a coffee shop and ask if they're okay with watching my bike and/or bringing it in with me. If/when I commute and bring my lock with me, I'm never more than a few meters away from the bike anyway so it's visible 100% of the time.

Hehe. its not like you're walking through a shopping mall. Most places you're probably stopping at are in public parks, so it's normal for spandex clad ppl clunking around looking goofy

I used to refer to the PDF maps from each city's website (i.e. City of Vancouver Bike Map - PDF file etc.) and a combination of Google Maps using the "bicycle" feature.

slowguy needs a bike.

Edit:
City of Richmond
City of Burnaby - PDF Map
Turns out Translink already has a list of the cycling maps - http://www.translink.ca/en/Getting-A...ling-Maps.aspx

Hey everyone,

I was thinking of biking the Seawall/Stanley Park. Just curious, how long do you think it'll take to bike the whole thing casually?

Thanks!

Last time I rode my hybrid around the Seawall/Stanley Park at a casual pace, I think it was about 30 - 45 mins total, starting at Coal Harbour.

Kryptonite u-lock of some kind with their cable to lock your wheels. The evolution line that bcrdukes posted above is pretty good.

im looking to get some tools to maintain my ride, mostly taking care of the drivetrain, chain/cassette and chain rings.

what kind do you guys use and where did you get them?

im thinking i'll need a chain cleaner, degreaser solution and some lube?

something like this.

Park Tool Chain Gang Chain Cleaning System - Cap's Westwood Cycle, pedaling good clean fun for 80 years

thanks
