David likes to experience the outdoors in Greater Vancouver. In summer, you will find him hiking the Chief, the Grouse Grind and other trails in the North Shore mountains. When off the trails, he is riding on the network of cycling paths around Vancouver and Burnaby. In winter, he will be snowshoeing at Cypress Mountain, Snowshoe Grind on Grouse or on the Dog Mountain trail at Mt Seymour. In between seasons, he often works out at the gym and swims lengths at the Canada Games Pool. Currently, he is trying to add some yoga into his workout.
Frequently, David leads groups out for these outdoor activities, call, text or email him if you wish to join in.
