Wicklaws at the end of a ride
So we ended the Saturday at Wicklaws. some of us had been riding since early in the afternoon and some of us had been later arrivals, but we all were thirsty and hungry. The beer was good and the food was great, but the prices were...well..very high. :(
Just after Beaver Lake
Pat, Big John, and I went for a ride this part way around the seawall and heard the gate was closed decided to ride to Beaver Lake and over the top of the Park to Second Beach ...and that's what we did...however, we had to drag the bikes in a lot of spots, but it was great to finally get out and have some fun!
Well...he said he wanted a hit

Friday February 6
We had a great ride last night...started from Lego land and rolled up through Strathcona to Trout Lake and then down to Trev Deeley's near Boundary and Broadway. We checked out the sweet vintage british motorcycles there and then rolled off to a park nearby for a stop, I recently picked up a nice light tripod for my camera that I can carry in my pack while riding and decided that now was the time to try out some long exposures with it. The park was pretty dark, but my first shot at 15 sec looked like a overexposed day shot in many ways... Well, this got the creative juices of Bryn, Mike and I running and we messed around with different long exposures and tried our hand at light painting with flashlights, bike lights, and even cell phone screens. The following pics are the result and are completely unedited.

We stopped for a bit by the water and a Strata's gym. I realized I had forgotten my tripod and decided to start messing with longer exporures anyways
Rat Rod's
Caught a pic of Bryce's "smoking squash" and Bryn's "Rat Rod 2.0"
At the nine o'clock gun
We didn't make the nine o'clock gun on time for the shot, but we made a good try
Listen to the music
So we chilled at the gun for a while
then the moon shone down
Can you hear us Major Tom?
At Siwash
A short roll from the gun and we hung at Siwash for a while
A dark and loomy night

All things must pass and we decided to roll to Rocky Point and then home
We stopped at the roundabout to regroup before entering the park
