Cycling along the seawall towards English Bay amidst the thousands of weekend summer cyclist who have neither a fixed start nor a predetermined finished, just a sense of adventure.  Sabrina the organised and planned, elegantly dressed and groomed, strapping her bag on her back ready to meander the unexpected.
