#dandySANTA: Photographer Dylan Leeder

#dandySANTA: Photographer Dylan Leeder

Dylan Leeder is a Toronto-based photographer who took all the pics of the folks at Soulpepper for our #dandySANTA series.

As a part of our dandy winter cyclist series, we asked  Dylan Leeder what he wants #dandySANTA to bring him for the holidays.
dandyhorse: What do you want for the holidays?

I mostly just want to be with all my family and friends.

Q: What bike lane(s) do you hope dandySANTA will bring for 2015? 

More going north – south in the west end would be nice. I’d also like to see more of those contra-flow bike lanes similar to the ones on Shaw Street around the city.

Q: What bike gear do you hope dandySANTA puts in your stocking this year?

An abundance of removable bike lights, as I always seem to be losing the little things.

Q: What else do you hope dandySANTA delivers this year?

I’ve been looking at those Thank You Toronto toques. Neat brand – shout out to the city that I love while feeding the hungry. Or… a plane ticket to the tropics.

Q: What is your number one tip for winter cycling?

Simply don’t be a hero – if it’s slick take it easy and a little more cautious than usual. Also, dress in layers – even tho it’s cold you can still get warm cycling and it’s nice to be able to throw a sweater in your bag.

Win a Steam Whistle gift pack:

#dandySANTA: Jill Allen of Sweet Pete’s

Sweet Pete’s and their three stores around Toronto have been providing cyclists with some of the best selection in bikes for years. Jill Allen of Sweet Pete’s showed off a Kona Wo fat bike at the Bloor West location of Sweet Pete’s. Allen says fat bikes are selling out fast, but would be perfect in the snowy weather we can expect soon!

As a part of our dandy winter cyclist series, we asked Jill Allen of Sweet Pete’s what she wants #dandySANTA to bring her for the holidays.
