Urban Country Cycle Chic, A Dutch December.

Dutch Cycle Chic - Toronto Style

I've been a big fan of Urban Country and their advocacy by example style of journalism.
The Toronto Based website is a wonderful resource that taps into Bicycle Culture, Bike Sharing and the overall positive promotion of a feasible bicycle infrastructure.

Although some may feel that advocacy websites or blogs are one sided, The Urban Country, like Toronto is a melting pot of diverse reads and viewpoints.
This December post by James Schwartz is a lovely interview of Amy, one of Toronto's citizen cyclists. Not only does she ride in the winter, she rides in style. Love the boots and mittens combo

The Snow can't stop the Style

Barrie just got Buried in 3 feet of snow, And an hour south here in Toronto we are still seeing green grass and dry pavement.

Across the pond the Danes haven't slowed down in the snow.

I borrowed these photos from Mikael over at Copenhagen Cycle Chic and Idathue from the Original Cycle Chic pool to illustrate the contrast and difference in mentality that Canadian culture has vs Copenhagen.

Keep on RollingLife on my street
Evening Flow 8

Although these photos may seem foreign to us here in Toronto.
These scenes could as easily be here in Toronto.

Lead by example?

A silent winter ride speaks volumes.

Cheers
