RIP Christopher Lum

Yesterday we lost our good friend and fellow rider Christopher Lum to a terrible ski accident in Lake Louise. Chris was one of Toronto’s best fixed gear riders and one of the nicest people to be around. He was always energetic and outgoing which rubbed off on everyone around him. For the last couple of years he has been studying at Delhousie University in Halifax but would always return home every chance he got to ride and see his family. Our hearts go out to his family for their loss. Chris we’ll ride with you again soon.

Forgotten Footage

I retired this camera a few months ago in favor of something newer and nicer. I've been meaning to go through and clear out the plethora of clips that never saw the light of day for one reason or another. A lot of them were cut from previous edits, or simply forgotten about, others were clips that were just never turned into anything at all. This is sort of like digital house cleaning and I hope it makes everyone feel like summer is a little bit closer. For me it just reminds me of why we all ride; you can't replace fun times spent with friends on warm summer days. Everything was filmed in Toronto over the past year and a half with the exception of one clip at the Brooklyn Banks. I hope this is a nice break for everyone who is stuck in the snow these day.
