Tour De Patrick Pre-Ride


Jeebus! I AM SO TIRED and SO SORE! Woke up at 8:50am, got dropped off at Pat’s around 9:15am, got ready, etc, then headed out by 10am. We took the wrong road looking for Angus Road in Vancouver after 64th Ave. We ended up adding about 4 extra kilometers to our route. After we found Burrard Street, we went across the bridge, circled a bit and rode on Beach Ave until we reached Milestones. We ate some lunch, and continued onto Stanley Park. We rode the diameter of SP counter-clockwise, rested here and there, and took the rather difficult route back home – cuz again, we lost the road we were travelling on.

Finally crossed Arthur Liang, and took a nice long rest along Russ Baker, watching planes land, played on the springy playground airplanes, took some pics, and headed toward Gilbert road bridge to Richmond, then back to Pat’s place. I slept for a bit, ate some dinner, and he dropped me off at my place around 8:45pm. As you can see, for those who are wondering, yes, I skipped my meeting with the team cuz I was just way too tired. However, it didn’t stop them from calling me a few times. I bet Benny and Jason are still at Ray’s house.

We went up Gilbert Road bridge, going to Sea Island to start. Across the bridge to Vancouver, we sat behind the Safeway on Granville Street, resting and eating half an egg/cheese sandwich. Then we crossed and rested at the Burrard Bridge. We had lunch at Milestones near Beach Ave later on before we went around Stanley Park going counter-clockwise. We went under the Lions Gate Bridge and rested at 2nd Beach. Then we chilled at the Russ Baker stop next to the airport runway. Finally, we rode back to Pat’s place. That balcony shot was facing north – where we ‘came from’. So it’s nice to see a perspective and how far we’ve gone.

That’s it. No more sexy pictures of Patrick. Tough luck girls! Haha… 8]

  1. Hey Li.. didja gain some weight? Your face is looking fuller, more healthy 😀

  2. Yeah, I gained 5 pounds over the last two months from working out, cycling and eating more than what I’m burning off. Still can’t get my forearms to get meatier though. I think Ed and I are doomed for that sort of thing. I’m going to look deranged – big shoulders, back, biceps, thighs, and pecs, and thin forearms and shins/calves. [sigh]

  3. hey Li, i couldn’t find your email, email me to [removed] i need to ask you something, please

Leemanism is about my views, my thoughts, and my feelings with as little filtering as possible. These concepts are not reflected in the people I value and are associated with. People who accept me, adhere to the parts where we are compatible and tolerate the parts where we are not. So however people perceive me to be, ultimately it obviously doesn't mean the friends I mention in this blog are the same as me. It means it's possible they are similar or the same, as well as different than me. It is highly unusual for people to be completely compatible with each other.

With that out of the way, and to make things clear, I never said I am a good person, nor am I trying to be one, though I would rather live with the empathetic than with the cruel. I would not deliberately do harm. I rather stand up against injustice than to pretend it doesn't exist. However, I understand consequences. The police is there to enforce the law, but not deter crimes from happening. Which means people must do what they must do to protect themselves, before the law of the land takes over and even then, the law of the land isn't there to protect you. It's there to protect the general consensus. Even if you may be right, society may deem you wrong - even most of your friends may side with society, than protect you. The law will almost always side with society.

We are few. Stay safe. (•̀ᵥᵥ•́)
