My second bike ride in Vancouver, BC will concentrate in and around the Chinatown area. Vancouver's Chinatown is the largest in Canada and the second largest in North America, with San Francsico's Chinatown being the largest. Looking at the map I see that Chinatown encompasses a good chunk of the city, so much so I bet when I'm in the middle of it all it'll seem like I'm really in China! How cool is that?!?

The ride to Chinatown will be a quick one since it's not terribly far from where I've street-camped. I'll be taking my mountain bike again, the same bike I took to Vancouver's waterfront yesterday. I'm actually starting to prefer the mountain bike over the road bike. Geeze, so far I've only ridden the road bike once when I toured San Juan Island. Good thing the bikes are both Treks (they're family), otherwise the road bike might start copping an attitude towards its slower, more rugged sibling.

Well, it's time to push off to Chinatown. Are you interested in Chinese culture? If so, come on with me, the cultural tour is about to begin!
