Ghost Bike vs Ghost Bike

P1120414, originally uploaded by Martinho.
Hey, those Ghost Bikes are cool. Right? Well, now you own your own Ghost Bike. Available from MEC in February 2012. Sadly, I am not kidding.

I wrote to MEC about this, saying it's a bit, if not very insensitive to sell Ghost bikes in a city like Toronto or anywhere really. They wrote back letting me know my comment is being passed onto the Head Office. Shall keep you posted.

Story on Torontoist:

Response from MEC head office: "Apart from the name, moreover, GHOST bicycles bear no resemblance to bike memorials: were you to place one next to the other, the two would stand in sharp contrast."

CBN Meeting - This Monday

The Community Bicycle Network is having an Annual General Meeting this Monday, February 13th (6:30pm, 761 Queen St. West). Come learn more about our goals in 2012, ask questions, and have your say. CBN is shaped by the community and your opinions, ideas, and energy are critical. We will also be voting on the Board of Directors and registering members. Members pay annual dues of $5. We feel this is low enough to be accessible to everyone. You can RSVP if you like.

We have a lot of important planning to do in 2012. Our lease is up in December and we'll be looking for a new space. We continue to expand our workshop programs (teaching bike mechanic skills as well as safe cycling) and divert hundreds of bikes and bike parts from landfill. There will be spaces on the board opening up, and lots of other volunteer opportunities such as outreach at community events, updating the website and other media, designing a t-shirt, stripping bike donations and much, much more.
