Winterizing: CYCLOPS End of Season

“Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.”

-Henry David Thoreau

The leaves are falling, crisp autumn sun is shining, and CYCLOPS is retiring our trusty blue two-wheeled steeds for the winter. Having closed the season with the most dreadful Night of Dread in Clay & Paper Theatre history, the Puppet Squad is reflecting on the past six months’ hard work and creativity. We did a lot, beginning with the Group Commute and the launch of Bike Month back in May, through to the Herstories Cafe in August,  September Pedestrian Sunday in Kensington Market and the frigid mid-October Tweed Ride, with Buskerfest and a little thing called The Pedaler’s Wager in between… what a ride it has been! We hope you saw and enjoyed our work or spotted us on the street. Drop us a line if you wish to support this project in future – stay tuned for 2012!

Tips for the many of us who continue to ride the streets of Toronto during the winter months from Bicycle.net: Winterizing Your Bike!

We’d like to extend our sincerest gratitude to The Trillium Foundation and the many many supporters and volunteers who have worked with us this year. We couldn’t have done it without you!

People For Bikes: Bikes Make Life Better

http://peopleforbikes.org/ posted this on their Youtube channel and we think it’s quite charming.

“We all know that when people ride bikes, life is better. In this short video, we bring this idea to life as riders trigger projectors throughout a city, transforming an urban environment into a vibrant, colorful world. A world made better, by bikes.”
