I fixed your bike for you

Good deeds need to be done. Really this was simply annoying me as I looked at how poorly this bike was locked to the post in front of Lift coffeeshop. Soon I realized the front wheel (and subsequently the tire) was installed backwards and the brakes were poorly adjusted. So if this is your bike 1.)Lock it up better and 2.) If you came out and wondered why it all of a sudden worked better, it’s because your front wheel has been installed correctly. Check out the before pictures and lock job below:

Street Scene-Couples Ride

I don’t really know if these people were a couple or not but they were spotted in front of Shields Market last night enjoying the weather and utilizing their baskets to procure some provisions for a relaxing evening in the city. What better way to do so than on the saddle of your bicycle. Try that in Chesterfield.

Irregulars

Awhile back I posted on “regulars” you may encounter while commuting by bicycle. You know, the dog walker, the morning coffee and paper, the bum who smells awesome. Well on Friday on my ride home I came across a group of people I know but don’t encounter frequently while riding at least. It was the folks from the Richmond Cycling Corps, which if you don’t know, is a great group promoting cycling with youth in the city. As I crossed Belle Isle I saw a bunch of people riding trails in the woods, carrying on, and generally having the kind of fun you should be having on a bicycle. Only as I came close to crossing the southbank access bridge did I realized who it was and stopped to chat and take a couple photos. Looks like the kids were having a great time!
