Are there regular riders that you see every day on the road? Ones that don’t give a hoot about style, gear or getting there in a hurry? This fellow is one of my favourite regular riders in Vancouver. I’ve lived around Main Street for the past four years or so and this guy is always riding. His usual routine is down Main Street in the morning and back up the big Main Street hill in the afternoon. He is oblivious to the traffic and slowly pedals along in the bike/bus lane.
He has recently upgraded his bike to the one pictured here – he used to ride a heavy, old city bike with a DIY curb-feeler that he probably constructed himself. But even though the bike is new, some things remain the same; the yellow hard hat he wears as a helmet and his daily ride down and then back up Main Street.
