With so much talk about the need for bike lanes in cities around the world, little discussion has been focused on making them better. A Dutch designer took upon himself to create a safer and quite frankly a beautiful glowing bike path. This kilometer-long bike path was developed using both glow-in-the-dark technology and solar-powered LEDs to help bicyclists stay on track when they ride at night.
Dutch artist and designer Daan Roosegaarde created the innovative glowing bike path to look like Van Gogh’s famous Starry Night painting. The Glowing Bike Path is located in Brabant, the Dutch county where Van Gogh was born and raised.
Daan Roosegaarde’s company Studio Roosegaarde is currently in talk with the City of Toronto to bring its Van Gogh-inspired glowing bicycle path to their city in time for the 2015 Pan Am Games.
Canada should be renamed Adventureland due to all of the fun and exciting things you can do here, something we often forget. City life can overshadow a life-changing experience only a few miles away in the great outdoors.
An English boy and his digital camera made this video and captured what you might be missing by not being here or waiting in traffic. Masterfully shot, the videographer encapsulated the beauty of nature and thrill of living in this great country in this special video montage including scenes of British Columbia and Vancouver. I hope you like it!
A Canadian filmmaker took to the streets of Hamilton, ON to conduct a social experiment following the shootings in Ottawa to see if perceptions changed after the horrific event.
Despite new fears imposed by media of rising terrorism in Canada, citizens of our great country remain unfazed and firm in their beliefs that racism of any sort has no place in Canada. So true to their values, Canadians will challenge you and even give you a cheap shot right in the nose as this filmmaker found out.
Despite having a bloody nose, the social experiment was an astounding success proving how we will always stand on guard for thee.

If you’ve never been to Victoria, B.C. then you’re really missing out on an amazing city. For the longest time, I felt Vancouver Island had to be a little backwards and then I finally visited and realized, it was I who had it backwards.
It’s often overlooked because of it’s younger brother Vancouver but this Victoria British Columbia video produced by Tourism Victoria, gets to heart of what makes Victoria so beautiful, it’s people. I hope you like it!
It’s hard to tell if the driver of this hyperlapse video had a great GPS or a really bad one because they took several back roads to get to Vancouver.
Everyone knows, the fastest way from California to Vancouver is the I-5 freeway but this videographer decided to take the scenic route to film this hyperlapse.
It can take over 18 hours to drive from San Francisco to Vancouver so you can imagine how much footage was squished into this three minute video. I hope you like it!
This video filmed with a GoPro camera captures what really happens when athletes step onto a Dragon Boat. Filmed at the 2014 Rio Tinto Dragon Boat Festival on False Creek in Vancouver, you can get a better understanding of how much upper body strength and teamwork is required just to cross the finish line.
How many ways can a timelapse of a city be filmed, before they get boring? With the case of Vancouver, BC, it seems like never especially when a highly skilled videographer has the right camera and a lot of patience. Thankfully, the very talented Daniel Chen has all of those and he captured another masterpiece to go along with his impressive collection of Vancouver timelapses.
Daniel went all out and filmed on location at some of most treasured spot around our great city. Press the full screen button on the video and crank up the sound to get the full effect.

It may not make it onto Shark Week but the Vancouver Aquarium posted this video clip on their Youtube account, courtesy Nuytco Research Ltd, of a sixgill shark swimming in Howe Sound, which is only 45km from Vancouver.
The sixgill shark is fairly common to the area but little is known about them. Fisherman and deep sea divers have found them near Kelvin Grove and Ansell Place a few years ago, but this is the most recent sighting close to Vancouver, BC.
A sixgill shark is also known as a cow shark and can grow up to 3.5 metres for males and 5 metres for females. They can be seen at depths of 30 m (98 ft) and shallower during parts of the year in some specific places. Younger sixgills eat fish and squid, whereas adults will eat seals.
