History on Our Streets

Rusty on Roncey

When was the last time you saw someone using a 40 year old (or older) vehicle running day to day errands and commuting to work?

Aside from the TTC, you really don’t see many older cars and trucks in daily use here in Toronto.

Unless of course you start looking at the bicycles that take many students and commuters around the city…

The Blue Beast, now in better hands

Hitching a Ride

Cruiser Classic

And you’ll find some brand new bicycles (with classic inspiration) on our streets as well…

  2. What a fantastic bike hyedie… what did you do with it once you got a new one?

  3. i love the bikes on ronce, the construction makes a great background, but it sucks for business and biking. i can’t wait till they are finished hopefully before summer, however, the amazing side streets are wonderful to ride through.

  4. Roncesvalles is a really amazing street. Independent shops galore, a fantastic library, a wonderful community and it is close to both High Park and the waterfront.

    You’ve also got a great “nabe” theatre and affordable restaurants and bars.

    You’re certainly right about the side streets. I really enjoying taking random routes through the one-way maze in this area. Maybe I’ll end up at Mitzi’s for brunch or find a random yard sale. It’s one of those neighbourhoods in Toronto where taking a side street feels like you’re exploring some new territory even though they are simply loaded with history.

  5. Thanks for using my pic. It’s nice to see a new Toronto cycling blog. I’ve subscribed.

  6. Welcome aboard, Ben. It was great to find your pic on Flickr.

  7. Envision him happy and fulfilled experiencing with his team a victory this
    Sunday. The excellent packing is necessary to move the goods safely to the new
    location. Our company knows for installing and using the best parts
    of auto. For this reason many people make an effort to be
    brokers of freight companies. As a result, migrants are looking for newer options where they
    can lead a relaxing life and get to make good money in return for their services.
    You can even present some gift vouchers of spa to take the pleasure of relaxation on their birthday.
    Data storage is expensive on such a large scale and
    has a direct relationship to costs associated with risk management, especially
    for companies that are exposed to litigation or government regulation. The services that clients can hire are:
    packing, loading, unloading, rearrangement, unpacking, transportation, storage, insurance, warehouses, etc.

    We are repairing and installment different types of gates
    suchlike Actuation Steel State Doors, Mercenary Coiled
    Grills for much than 10 age. For example, a pharmaceutical manufacturer may invest in new 1,
    000-litre capacity reactor vessels, a property company purchases a 500-vehicle capacity city-centre car park, and
    a ‘multiplex’ cinema is built with 10 screens and a total capacity
    of 2,500 seats.

  8. And if you ever were to wear these separately,
    everybody would see your bra. The truth of the matter is that there is always room for negotiation. These steeply-priced shoes
    are demure, yet captivating.
