Brad’s favourite urban journey is along the Coquitlam River, on the doorstep of his apartment in downtown Coquitlam. With a considerable trail network flowing down the mountainside through remnants of old growth forests, the river and trails are a playground and teaching ground for his family, and are a nature based highway to connect to other areas of the city.
