There are a few similar pages around the blogosphere that have similar motivation to our own. This page has Hamilton’s answer to waterloobikes.ca. Actually, I guess since he was around before us, we’re the answer to icyclehamilton.com.
Kitchener and Waterloo Routes
I always wanted to get this site integrated with a bunch of user provided route maps. I’d still like to do that someday. If I can get the technical bit figured out, this compendium of routes would be a great start. Annotated, detailed routes for getting around KW. Even getting to Guelph and Cambridge is covered.
Only Liberal Hippies Ride Bikes
It’s a common misconception. I have a few pinko friends who like to pedal. I have some pedaling friends whose politics I’m not sure about. Then there’s Jim Schneller who puts the bikes are for liberals stereotype to rest once and for all.
This idiotic website was making the bikeosphere rounds a few weeks ago. Like most venom filled tirades, it’s filled with misconceptions and half truths. Long on flash, short on substance. And, as usual, guy with camera waits around until a cyclist is breaking the law, then snaps a picture trying to convince everyone that we are all scofflaws. We should all carry cameras too, take pix of cars rolling stop signs, then compare who has more photos, us or them.
I always like to throw in a picture of a gorgeous bike on links day. This baby is so sexy, I’d be afraid to ride it.
