We've been featuring winter cycling for a while now in dandyhorse. Sweaterbike(1994) by Janet Morton, above, from our 2012 winter issue, is one great example of our dandy take on winter wheelin'. So it was heartwarming to see hundreds of cyclists participating in the Coldest Day of the Year Ride from Trinity Bellwoods Park to Metro Hall on January 31, 2015. The annual ride is co-hosted by Cycle Toronto and he City of Toronto.
This past month, we also heard some heartening bike-positive words from the City's new Chair of the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee, Jaye Robinson. Check out our dandy interview here.
From the literary world: We had a book review of Tom Babin's Frostbike and a Q&A with Yvonne Bambrick, author of The Urban Cyclist Survival Guide (and long-time dandy contributor!)
There was plenty going on at some of our favourite bike shops too: Bikes on Wheels opened up their new store on Dundas West and Sweet Pete's began indoor cycling classes (don't you dare call it a spin class). And we said, Welcome to the Velodrome.
Up next: More coverage of Pan Am Games cycling events and infrastructure, our interview with the City of Toronto's new cycling unit manager, and a feature about bringing bikes to refugee camps in the Middle East.
Stay tuned to the dandyBLOG for more news!
