I Bike T.O. Profile: Erin

I spotted Erin’s shirt in her Twitter profile photo (@erintoop) a couple weeks ago, and asked if she wanted to be in an I Bike T.O. profile.  Lucky for us, she said yes!   (More info about I Bike T.O. Profiles at the bottom of this post).

Pictured below is Erin, and below the photo is why Erin loves biking and her shirt.

I had lived in Prince George and Edmonton for most of my life, where the cycling seasons are pretty short-lived, and so moving to Toronto was an awesome change. I love the fact that Don Johnson, my trusty steed, can get me almost everywhere I need to go in the city, just about year round.

On top of transporting me to and from work, cycling also plays a major role in life at work. I am a transportation engineer and I focus a lot of my energy on helping make urban transportation more sustainable. Conveniently,  sustainable and bikeable go hand-in-hand.

I bought my t-shirt last fall, during brunch at Grapefruit Moon (an excellent Annex brunch and beer joint, by the way). Grapefruit Moon awesomely displays these shirts above their bar, and after I spotted them, there was no doubt that I would be ordering a t-shirt to go.

In these polarized times for cycling in Toronto, I think the I Bike T.O. logo is a great and positive way to promote cycling in our city.

Below are some other I Bike T.O. Profiles.  If you have an I Bike T.O. shirt and want to be profiled, just email me and let me know.  If you don’t have a shirt, but want one, you can get them online, or at Outer Layer (577 Queen, near Bathurst), or email me… I may have one hanging around in your size.
