I just visited my other favorite city in North America, Vancouver, B.C., where I met the dudes behind Vancouver Cycle Chic and worked on my short film, The Spinster. David Phu, founder of Vancouver Cycle Chic and composer of The Spinster's original score Chris Bruntlett, Vancouver Cycle Chic editor with his beautiful daughter Thanks for the bike tour + brews, guys! Chris also writes about bike culture for HUSH, and recently expressed that he prefers not to be called the "C" word, so from now on, you're The Bike Man from The Great White North to me! So here's a few pics of some two-wheeled Canadians I caught while riding around! Such a great city for *ahem* cycling! ;-) Except they have one funky law... But you can still roll the dice and have a good time (the fine is $29 CAD).
unlike amsterdam, there aren't many places in the gritty city of san francisco where you can leave a bike parked outside overnight, night after night, without a reasonable expectation that it will be exploited by thieving vermin. the parker, however, is theft proof, we hope. who would steal a little girl's bike locked to the railing on her front stoop? no one ever better touch the parker.
