It's Fall and the Sun's Out...Let's go For a Ride!

It has been a wet week here in Vancouver, culminating with a heavy downpour most of the day Saturday. So when we woke up Sunday morning to find the sun shining, there wasn't a doubt in our minds that we were heading out for a bike ride. With Coralie on her own bike and Etienne on his trail-a-bike for the first time since Chris bought his new bike in September, we set out for a seawall ride. It's a familiar route, and one we've done more times than we can count. What made it special, aside from getting outdoors after all the rain, was all the little surprises we had along the way. Here's a snapshot of our sunny, fall ride in Vancouver! Photos by Chris Bruntlett (twitter and instagram: @cbruntlett)
