Toronto visit pt. 2

More from this trip, since my friend Richard has been processing and uploading his photos (all photos below are by him, except for the two bikes outside Urbane taken by me).

On our way from Tanya's place to Urbane Cycles via bike path, and crossing the Don River.

On Queen's Quay Blvd., passing a trailer-towing cyclist.

And two folks engaged in some pedal-powered protest.

Outside Urbane, and saw this interesting lock...

Umm, I don't think the lock was bought in this shape. ;)

A Supercycle (Raleigh) Twenty folding bike, with braze-ons. Must belong to our friend Carey Chen of Urbane Cycles.

Front brakes too. I've featured some of Carey's "hotrod Twentys" on my folder page.

At Urbane, and bents galore!

Various trikes.

Compared to most shops, Urbane actually stocks internal-gear hubs, including the fabulous (and expensive) Schmidt Dynohub!

We leave the shop and head off to meet Tanya, and pass by the Batmobile sitting in alley on John St.!

Lots of people out to see this promo event, as the movie was opening that weekend.

Bat-cycle (non-HP)

We collect Tanya from her workplace and head off to Jen and Vic's pre-wedding BBQ. Here we're riding down an alley after checking out the Community Bike Network shop.

Who needs helmets when riding in the middle of the largest city in Canada on tiny bikes with rather questionable brakes? Not us... :P

The next day, T. and I arriving at the wedding on same bikes.

Quite a few people arrived by bike, so the signposts and other places to lock were filling up fast. We found another Auto-Mini, painted black, and locked our Twenty and Mini beside it. It's fun parking your bike at a no-parking sign. :)
