    So Maidei got a taste of Bike to Work Day in Calgary. She also went on a bison ride, was a bike-pedestrian path by Elbow River.

    More pics and her impressions of Bike to Work Day (very different than Vancouver) in this city, plus how she assesses gourmet creme puffs, is in a blog post here.

    Maidei landed in Vancouver BC yesterday. This morning she was given a tour by a local artist for some new outdoor mosaics at a local park, Norquay Park. Here she is by a crab theme mosaic. The mosaics will be unveiled in a few weeks as part of Vancouver's 125th anniversary. She just had a privileged sneak preview.

    There will be more. She's been busy...and will be over next few days. Watch out for more stuff on this thread!

    Lots to see Beth, even without us going into Victoria while on Vancouver Island.

    So Maidei got to go to Vancouver Island, a winery, a cheese tasting of local cheese, a cidery, etc. Beautiful cheap ferry ride (Walk-on passenger $14.00 and bike $2.00 one way on B.C. Ferry from Vancouver to Swartz Bay/Saanich area. 1.5 hr. long ferry ride.) There is a 35 km. bike route from ferry docks at Swartz Bay on Vancouver Island that takes one into Victoria.

    More pics and her adventures here. Then she's gone over to Grog at this time, still in Vancouver but we await for next stage.

    Hi everyone! Just thought I'd drop in to let you know that Maidei is enjoying the couch in our guest bedroom and taking a bit of a rest after her adventures with Shootingstar. I'll be taking her out for rides shortly and let you know all about it.

    Is there anyone else in BC or Canada in general who would like to spend some time with her next? I haven't followed every message on this thread so I am not sure if she is supposed to get to her destination in the PNW on a timeline or if she can detour through Texas first. Please enlighten me!

    Hope Maidei is having good adventures on your bike with you.

    Where is she going after this?
