Baz Luhrmann said it best when he wrote the Sunscreen song:
Be careful whose advice you buy, but be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia. Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.
Wascana Park in central Regina is a popular destination for both locals and tourists alike. There is just something exquisite about having a beautiful man-made lake in the middle of a major city on the prairies of western Canada.
Without a doubt, one of my favourite parks to cycle through, whether it be on a fixed-gear city bike, a road bike, or even a time trial bike enroute to the straight and flat highways east of Regina.
Although this video was shot in the early spring, I wanted to do a compare and contrast clip to be shot later on in the summer. Although the scenery is still drab and dull and the park roads were wet and full of potholes from the winter freeze/thaw cycles, this will soon change to new pavement and the beautiful shades of green in the summer season. Warm sunshine and lazy days on the beach – what’s not to like?
