I forgot something today as I got out on my bicycle , I thought , just a couple of stops before stopping in at the Gathering Place. As I rode out onto the road,thinking of my list of errands , I lined up my routes. What occured was the most mangled up stop and no go traffic mess I have ever ridden in. I don’t even want to be near , cars , let alone be stuck in the dead end , lookin’ at the wrong end of a car,bus truck or whatever. So , I go through the list , getting more and more angry at every Jam in the Traffic of going and becoming stopped . Why ? I was asking , is this going On?? I actually asked , randomly Is every car on the road today ?
After the last stop , I head home, my right leg burning , my stump totally numb, red , and sore. As I peddle the last hill up Thurlow it felt like my prosthetic weighed a tonne.
So, in my wheel chair , I thought it through. Why? What is it today , with the traffic, and why now??
As I mentioned at the start, I had forgotten something;
The four factors in Vancouvers’ Friday traffic; A) There are 2 cruise ships docked . That’s a possible 10 000 ppl in and around ten blocks from Gastown. B) Its Friday ,the post Summer season and the first Friday of the work week . C ) The high end overvalued show me group -((Bling on four wheels )) large group of the cars were , jus’ for show. They go, cruise , at 8 mph, an park them, , stand around it, then….. go to the line up , of the club. C) Construction , you remove 4 lanes of traffic in around any city block down here, and the next four lanes slow to a grinding idle. So , that involved ; Burrard, Robson, Goergia, Helmcken, and Nelson. People still came down in cars . So they were all sitting in them , an hour and a half longer than needed .There, I think I got it across. Have a happy Friday. Please Never bring your car down here.
