New Post and Ring!

It was another fun and interesting ride around Toronto last night, organized through the Cycling Cog. Herb led us on a tour of the smells of western Toronto. Along with the smells, Herb gave us a little history about each location; something that really adds to the whole experience.

Coincidentally, we happened across two of Toronto's newest posts and rings. And I'm not talking about the double reinforced rings. These ones were created, designed and built by a community organization on Queen Street West. (Demonstrating my amateur status as a reporter, I can't tell you which organization or where on Queen West.)

While we were admiring the "posts and rings", a few people in our group started talking to a couple women who were involved in the whole project! It's amazing how much a big city can feel like a small town.

Maybe we'll see posts and rings like this spreading through the city.

The cool bike posts were in front of the Parkdale Recreation Centre. IIRC, the women said it was someone from the psychiatric survivors group that designed them.
It's collaborative reporting. Thanks Tanya!
