BikeFACE: Megan Kinch

Rider statement from MEGAN KINCH: Though I sometimes bike to my construction job, mostly riding is still about that feeling of flying, of joy, of freedom. You feel trapped inside when you're a mother, or stuck wrangling a bulky stroller. You're supposed to get a babysitter to do anything grown up. But I like to have a life together with my daughter. In summer, after a hard shift at work, I can pick her up on my bike feel re-energized by the rhythm of the neighbourhood. We're on a fun adventure instead of just running errands. I can share that feeling of flying with her.

BikeFACE: Julie Babin

Rider statement from JULIE BABIN: My city commuter is my chariot – I navigate the city on a simple, light-weight, single-speed Masi. On early mornings, I take my road bike out for 40-km rides with the Bikes On Wheels Women cycling crew that I co-founded in 2016. After starting to participate in triathlons with my father in 2009, I continued to cycle/train on my own. In 2015 I started group riding, but found that there were very few female cyclists. The BOWW group was formed to create a safe and welcoming active space in a very male dominated and intimidating sport. My goal is to have a more cohesive, safe and friendly atmosphere between cyclists, drivers, and pedestrians both in the city and beyond.

BikeFACE: Emily Smith

Rider statement from EMILY SMITH: Biking in the city has been such a positive thing in my life – it has made me healthier, stronger, braver, more adventurous, and tougher in miserable weather. I have only had my bike for a year but it is by far the best thing I have done for myself recently. It’s more than just a better way to commute.
