Links – Tri-Cities Christmas Fun and Bikes in Coquitlam

Bike Commuting and Christmas

We’re getting to that point in the holiday season when some of us are already partied out, the festive fistfights over a mall parking spot pick up, and it’s really really dark out. But luckily, some of us out there are still bringing the holiday cheer.

We always take the opportunity to link to ourselves, and Amber wrote a post for Miss 604 all about getting festive in Port Moody.

Speaking of festive events, the Coquitlam Optimist Club held their Breakfast with Santa, which brought in 554 lbs. of food for the Share Food Bank.

Glad to have another Coquitlam councillor regularly blogging, and not just to “social media up” for an election run. Terry O’Neill this week writes about his opposition to compelling new residential buildings in Coquitlam to provide bike storage. The rebuttal comes from our long time blogging councillor Selina Robinson.

Speaking of biking, Outdoor Vancouver gives us a guide to commuting by bike in Vancouver in the winter.

The Tri-Cities Chamber tells us about some early tenders that have now gone out for Evergreen Line construction. That shovel in the ground is coming!

The next PechaKucha night with ArtsConnect is coming on February 20th, and they have posted some videos from events past to give you an idea of what to expect.

St. Catherine’s Anglican Church in Port Coquitlam shares with us the history of Christmas celebrations at the church that goes back to 1911.

JLS Photography captured a family in the beauty of Mundy Park.

And finally, the Vancouver Giants are asking us to take the Vancouver Giants YouTube Challenge. If they can get 50,000 views of this video by Christmas Day, The Province’s Empty Stocking Fund and CKNW’s Orphan’s Fund will receive $5,000 each thanks to the Vancouver Giants and White Spot Restaurants. So take a look at the video and put them over the top.
