Michaela was staying in Tsawwassen with her father so I went alone, from Broadway. In the absence of someone to chat with and share the experience, there is always my friend Garmin. It is more difficult to assess the extent of effort when biking compared with running, so tracking heart rate is important. Plus it passes the time. (Garmin is a brand of GPS/Heart Rate Monitors.) On the graphic is shown heartrate, elevation, and speed.
I find that exercising when combined with doing something else, like going somewhere, is very rewarding. And yes, I walked up Mountain View Drive on SSI. Lance Armstrong (un-doped) would walk up Mountain View Drive.
