Ottawa cyclists

I spotted this pair of cyclists on a busy street in Ottawa on the weekend. They looked like a father-son team, busy moving a serious load on a bike trailer.

They were heading down Woodroffe Ave, for anyone familiar with the area. Like many of the suburban arterials in Ottawa, it has bike lanes and dedicated bus lanes in each direction. Nearby, on Hunt Club Rd, there are actually bike lanes in each direction, plus a bike path off to one side.

My friend Mike Watson lives right near there. Next time you're in town, you should check out his huge stable of bizarre home-built bikes. Here's his recent cargo-chopper bike:
That's a pretty funky bike. I like the look of the kickstand system, although I'm not quite clear on how it works.
