Spring - like conditions
SE corner Jasper Avenue and 103 Street
As Kirk pushes his bike closer to me, I can see that he has some cotton batten and surgical tape covering his left eye, behind his sunglasses. His bike is splashed with dirt and his panniers look well used. He looks like an experienced cyclist.
His big smile tells me that he enjoying having his picture taken this warm noonhour. "I'm just coming back from an eye appointment and since I don't have any depth-of-view, I'm better off pushing my bike!"
When I tell him that I'm a mechanic at BikeWorks North, he assures me that we will meet again since he visits our north end bike shop often. I look forward to the meeting.
