Putting too much emphasis on Big, Important Bike Tours can lead to feeling like the act of traveling by your own power isn’t interesting and compelling enough in itself, then feeling we have to connect the tour with something important, like a charity or “awareness”

The other thing that interests me is trying to determine what category of “bike tourer” the person writing/drawing the remembrance falls into. It’s by no means scientific, but I broadly divide it into three categories:


There are so many beginners on the open road which have no clue of the road rules and abuse them because they know no better

You also have people which want to compete or are very competitive and they do dumb-ass things like cutting in front of you without giving you enough room to maneuver or stop. Yes it’s all about them not you. Before you know it you’ll be laying in the ground with broken handle bars a sprained wrists and you’re unable to get home without assistance.

I had turned my phone off. I didn’t want it to go dead. I was worried about an emergency—like wobbling into a ditch, falling off my bike, getting all banged up, and having to spend the night on the trail somewhere with a broken leg.


A bicycle with no gears – also called Manyi g’ekifuba by the Baganda – has one speed ratio and is usually exhausting to propel forward when riding uphill since one relies mostly on their strength to move it

I pull up to the Biking Lawyer’s office and there are 5-6 other cyclists there. Outside volunteers are carrying out boxes of produce. Some are emptying the boxes into panniers, others are putting them on racks strapped down with bungee cords. I have signed up to bring five boxes with me and am disappointed when the first box comes out. I can’t even get it through the opening in the top of the trailer. But not to worry – it turns out that inside the box are plastic bags full of produce. I take the bags out and stack them inside, and five fit perfectly.

Studies show that creating a km of bollard-protected bike lanes is about $380,000, which may sound like a lot. But in comparison, a one km stretch of a bus rapid transit system comes in at $500,000 and it’s a big jump up to $326 million per km to build a light rapid transit line, such as the Eglinton Cross town LRT. But all of these numbers are a fraction of the $1 billion per km needed to build more subway lines.
