Rugged performance over speed

@Barry Sandland/TIMB – One sure sign of a growth in cycling in St John’s is the increase in bike shops

“The BMX bike is something I have always been interested in. I like that you can take it to the skate park and throw it across the ground and not worry that anything is broken.”

Photographer’s notes: Full disclosure, this shop is owned by the man who was my cycling coach when I was younger. I actually did not know that when I asked for the photo. I was so pleased to see a new shop with another range of bikes on offer. It is a sign that cycling is developing, if slowly.
