BACKWARDS RIDER

It was a double take, sipping coffee, wandering the graffiti alleyways parallel to Queen West.
In a moment of chance, I pressed the shutter and he appeared in my viewfinder.

The Backwards Rider a.k.a Leslie Slowley is an Eco Warrior fighting for the rejuvenation of the planet and humanity.

He has been riding in reverse on the streets of Toronto since 2009.

If you get a chance, stop him for a second to query the philosophy behind why he rides backwards,

it may just spark something in you to rewind and look deeper into your own life .



Theres always another way to look at things.

Check out his website and youtube channel for a taste of the backwards experience.


There is also info on how you can join in on the about-face fun.




I know i'm going to give it a shot.


Cheers
