Best Gravel Bike Routes Near Vancouver, BC
with MAHSHID HADI, Liv Ambassador Canada
In November 2018, I landed in Toronto, Canada as a refugee from Iran. After a few days of settling in, I bundled up for a cold morning walk to explore my neighborhood. Deep in thought about my future here in this new country, I was formulating plans for getting into the film industry when a strong wind pushed me back. I buried my chin by my collar and held onto a “No Parking” sign; it felt like a scene from the movie “Gone with the Wind”. At that moment, I considered moving out to the West Coast - where the winter seasons are less harsh. While researching Vancouver, I discovered the vast bike scene and the possibility of beautiful gravel adventures in the area - I flew to Vancouver a week later.
