Toronto’s 5 fittest city councillors do it by bike

Great article from the Star about Toronto’s 5 fittest councillors.

The best part, unsurprisingly, is that 4 of them stay fit by making cycling a regular part of their lives.

I’ve excepted parts of the article below:

Karen Stintz – The Runner

Stintz also bikes seven km to work twice per week — to make a public statement.

“I’m trying to normalize things like biking to work, because it still isn’t considered mainstream,” Stintz said. “I’m hoping to contribute to making cycling to work mainstream for people who might not consider it a way to get to work.”

Anthony Perruzza — The Devoted

“I’m a devout cyclist,” Perruzza said. “I cycle thousands and thousands of kilometres yearly. I just love it.”

In June, Perruzza participated in the 2013 Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer , in which he rode to Hamilton and back. The two-day ride is about 200-km long. Proceeds help the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre .

Glenn De Baeremaeker — The Enthusiast

The first thing Councillor Glenn De Baeremaeker does after getting out of bed early in the morning is put on his bike gear.

“Just get up and go,” he said. “Don’t think, because when you start using your brain, you say, ‘maybe it’s slippery or dangerous outside,’ and then you just don’t go.”

Kristyn Wong-Tam — The Traveller

Fitness is a lifelong journey, and Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam is on it, travelling by bike.

This month marks the fourth consecutive year in which Wong-Tam will go on a six-day, 600-km cycling expedition from Toronto to Montreal. She’ll cycle 100 km per day and camp out each night. The trip is organized by the Toronto People with Aids Foundation and is called the Friends for Life Bike Rally .
