Lani and Dave

Here are two hardcore cyclists on their way home from a week of maintaining the Great Divide Trail. Lani in the front has four full panniers and is wearing a backpack while Dave in the rear has a backpack, two panniers and is pulling a B.O.B. trailer full of gear.
Among other things, these guys are carrying paint, paint brushes and a chainsaw with fuel.

Smiling like a Cheshire cat, Robert, a year 'round cyclist, poses with his bike before beginning his shift at the northern location of Edmonton's oldest community bike shop.
Robert proudly showed me how clean his drive train was after installing a mudflap on his front fender.  He encouraged me to make one of my own by handing me a milk carton and a pair of scissors.

Without a wide enough lens it was necessary to tilt the camera to get both Andreas (pronounced undress) and his Japanese commuter bike into the frame.  It seems that Andreas bought this particular set of wheels at this bike co-op and with only a small amount of repair, it has turned into one of his favourite bikes.

A year 'round cyclist, Phil is proud of his Canadian (and union) made Rocky Mountain which he has maintained beautifully for a number of years.  While it does get pretty dirty in the winter, Phil does manage to keep it spotless.
