Great pictures.If it wasn't for Vancouver CycleChic, my impression of a Vancouver cyclist was always as follows:-Helmet-High vis vest/jacket-SpandexSeems like the cyclists you show are the exact opposite some in Vancouver want shown.
Ryan, your impression of a Vancouver cyclist is pretty accurate. I've taken it upon myself to spotlight the rare few chic (ie. normal) ones. This fall has been increasingly difficult now that the summer-only-cyclists are on the busses and trains. I hope my blog can put the pressure on! Also, LOVE The City Cyclist.
yes, your blog help. You do a good work at promoting "utility cycling",notice I was at the "Cities, Bicycles" event tonight, and David Byrne did a good job at promoting "utility cycling", but given the reaction of the audience at a question on the helmet law, there is lot of work to do in Vancouver:Here people believe overwhelmingly that biking= Helmet,Spandex and Hi Vis jacket...and is dangerous otherwise.
