A DIFFERENT PATH

This is my simple bike. A Peugeot Sport with 27 inch wheels, fenders and a coaster brake.
Nothing fancy. An old used Brooks saddle maybe for comfort. It's not a silent ride, there are squeaks here and there. But my hands are free and it's easy to maintain.
Abandoned bike near Dovercourt.
A great event plus $1200 was raised for Charlie's Freewheels. Kudos to the organizers and volunteers and the after party hosts Bike Pirates.
West Toronto Rail Path last night. Somehow I thought it might be free of ice or snow.
Well, it was a lot fun to ride. Kinda like mountain biking on sandy soil.
The Toronto Cyclists Union Bike Camp was a great success (see video)! Thanks to all the people who contributed their great ideas.
