Toronto Group Commute

The City of Toronto kicked off Bike Month yesterday with its annual Group Commute. Bicycle commuters from around the city met to ride together from four start points and converged at Yonge and Bloor before descending on mass to Nathan Phillips Square.

Coming from Waterloo with nine bikes ranging in size from the diminutive Mini 125 to the enormous Family Truckster and Couchbike, our commute was surely one of the more logistically complex. Kudos to Ted for keepin’ it real and cycling all the way from Waterloo.

In Nathan Phillips Square, we had a special area set up for people to try some of the unique bikes we brought from the Bicycle Forest collection. Good times were definitely had by all.

Cardboard BikeCAD model

Every year, Pacific Southwest Container hosts a Customer Appreciation day and golf tournament. Ryan Perkins’ department is responsible for creating the unique golf holes. Think Putt Putt golf but everything is made of paper. This year’s theme was Going Green on the Green. Ryan used a full scale PDF output from BikeCAD Pro to create this amazing cardboard bicycle.

I’m sure many a junior golfer would have contemplated theft had it not been for the sturdy cardboard chain. Good thinking Ryan… and nice work!
