A recent hiatus in posts due to a trip to Québec City and Toronto! Although I didn't ride bikes in either city (but walked and walked and walked), it was great to observe some cycling trends in these two bustling cities.
Toronto has TONS of cute cyclists and the bikes are so diverse and well-worn. There is, however, a problem with theft. So, cheap bikes and fix-it-ups are often the vehicles for choice. That doesn't mean I didn't see some great rides! Another thing I noticed was a severe lack of helmets compared to Edmonton. It doesn't seem as taboo not to have one on.
This was a cool piece of sidewalk art on Queen St. West.
This is a cute poster at a bakery, Dufflet, that offers treats to cyclists that visit all 3 locations in one day. The cyclists pays a registration fee which then goes towards a bike friendly charity! Patries and biking all over Toronto. Sounds ideal!
