Welcome Duncan to the Main Blog

Duncan means business.  Look at all that black clothing! :)

Duncan means business. Look at all that black clothing! :)

I’d like to welcome Duncan to blogging here on the main blog of BikingToronto.

For those of you who have been visiting BikingToronto for a while, you’ll know that Duncan started the first of many member blogs on the site last summer.  His City Rides blog has been a great read, featuring personal stories and photo-posts about dressing with style and how to carry stuff by bike, as well as general larger-topic issues.

Here’s a little bit more about him from his “About” page on his City Rides blog:

In early 2009 I realized I needed a change. I was rapidly gaining weight and couldn’t stay awake past 9 pm most evenings. I had given up my car to save money, but that money was going to transit instead. So, I bought a bicycle.

First, I’d just take trips around town. Then I began to commute to work by bike. 25 km each way. This one, simple change has improved my life. Read about it on my blog.

Follow me on Twitter: Duncan’sCityRide

Duncan has already posted once here on the main blog a few days ago ( Toronto Board of Trade; “Embarrassing” Commuting Times for GTA ) and I am sure we ca expect lots of interesting posts from him in the future, too.

Please join me in welcoming Duncan to the main blog! :)
