... I tell ya, New West isn't generally very highly spoken of. I, for one, have always had a soft spot for this city that happens to be very accessible by Skytrain from Vancouver. It's not hip yet but it will be. It is lined with some of the oldest buildings and streets in the GVA and is currently home to great little secrets such as Antique Alley, privately owned cafes and a HUGE Salvation Army that isn't pillaged by consignment cool-hunters. I bought my bike from an antique store for a very reasonable price here.
Today, I shared an elevator at the Skytrain with this gentleman who, upon quick assessment, possessed all the qualities I look for in Cycle Chic: well dressed and on a bike. His name is Nathan and he is a college instructor. Would it be shallow if I thought it kind of made sense? We chatted quick about shoes and I made off with some photos.
Pieces of note:
