“I ride my BMX pretty often. I am usually a daily commuter. It’s my way around the city. I try to avoid taking the bus as much as possible. All in all, bikes are the best things. I try and have arrange of bikes, like this BMX for city cruising. And I have a bike for off-roading. And I also unicycle, as well. I can get in 2,000 to 3,000 kilometres in the summer alone. That does not include the spring or fall. Sometimes I bike in the winter. I try and get out as much as possible.”

Photographer’s notes: OK, it was the tattoo collection that had me stop this rider. He was out with his sister and her kids, riding through the city centre together. I expected him to talk about the BMX, but his interest in bikes is eclectic. Now I wish I had a shot of him on a unicycle.
