Bikes are more nimble than cars at times
Vancouver’s Sun Run 2011 took place today in perfect weather conditions. I walked it with my mum, my wife and our dog, and had a great time. Although I have to admit that since we got home we have been sharing foot baths and rotating ice packs – we’re just not used to long distance walking (if it had been long-distance cycling, that would have been a different story!)
I was very happy to see a number of bikes being used as support vehicles: BC Ambulance had paramedics out in force on solid-looking bikes festooned with large quantities of supplies. What a pleasure to have the support of paramedics without the fumes of ambulances! SportMedic also had paramedics out on bikes. I wrote about how sensible this would be in a recent post (No Fun City to Become No Bike City?), and I’m so happy to see it actually happening!
