  1. Hey you in Waterloo! Thanks for stopping by my site recently. I’ve added a link to Waterloo Bikes from I Cycle Hamilton.

    Have been going around my neighbourhood, and a bit beyond, handing out and posting my calling cards. Will let you know what, if any, the community response is. So far most people, shop owners and those on the street, have reacted quite positively to the card and to what I am trying, that is make Hamilton a more liveable, cycle-friendly city.

    Cheers!

  2. Nice to see a cycling blog from Waterloo, ON. I grew up there and moved away to Toronto, Vancouver, etc. We did cycle from Toronto via Guelph to Waterloo. Ended near Elmira. This was over 10 yrs. ago.

    I was stunned by the amount of urban development between Conestoga Mall and St. Jacob’s. Sad. While going to university, I worked at the mall and do remember corn fields right beside the mall.

    Keep blogging about the area, keep riding and draw more local support to develop K-W’s cycling infrastructure.

    1. Thanks for the vote of encouragement! Waterloo Region is definitely growing and there’s a cycling contingent that’s growing and needs to be more vocal, hopefully we can help.

  3. Thanks a bunch for passing along that link Graham!
    I’ve been slacking off the past couple of weeks and regrettably our local radio media (which is suppose to cover ALL of Niagara), won’t mention stories that make motorists look bad in any way, especially when a cyclist is involved :\
