I have my first Mobi story:
On Saturday night after watching the fireworks from my apartment on Broadway I offered to drive my brother and sister-in-law back to their hotel in the West End. Getting there was easy, but as soon as I turned around on W Georgia traffic was at a standstill.
(I should have seen this coming, obviously, but in my defense I’m a moron)
So I sat in my car on W Georgia for 30 minutes and moved about 2 blocks. Lucky for me I’d taken an Evo so I was able to pull onto a side street, end my Evo rental, walk a block to a Mobi station and grab a bike.
It ended up being one of the most fun rides I’ve had in a while, blowing past the gridlocked traffic on Burrard on that silly looking bike with a big grin on my face. I was home in 20 minutes, it would easily have been an hour if I’d stayed in my car.
