    After several years of having to cancel this ride due to weather, I’m happy to report this one went off without a hitch. It was a bit foggy on the water close to Stanley Park, but visibility was very good. Many thanks to the 3 riders who braved the dark, cold, and fog to visit all the major light displays in the city. A big welcome to Jinsi who did her first VBC ride. The crowds at Van Dusen was pretty bad, and we’d had our fill of lights so went to fill our stomachs instead. The pho really hit the spot. Too bad we missed Rob at the start of the ride. There’s always next year!

    Enjoy the photos:

    The lights were really nice, with what seemed like even more houses decorated at Trinity Street. Must have been riding too slow on the hybrid to catch up. I called it a night after St. Paul’s thinking the ride had been canceled – my feet got chilled. Glad to hear the ride was a go.
