NAME: Nicola Coles
OCCUPATION: Nursing student
WHERE YOU HEADING: on my way to preston street to grab a coffee
WHAT ARE YOU RIDING: my bike is from regal bicycles, based in toronto, they call it “the bicycle formerly known as the prince”.
WHY DO YOU RIDE: it makes me happy. I like to get out and clear my head and just be with my bike, its a great way to unwind and destress. I also dislike taking the bus, so I bike to commute too
IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT BIKING IN OTTAWA WHAT WOULD: That Ottawa drivers would take their time and drive more cautiously, it only takes a minute out of their day to wait to pass safely, but they tend to be rushed and will risk trying to pass. They are a lot bigger than cyclists and I think they forget how easily they could injure us.
WHAT ARE YOU WEARING:
- SWEATER: Artizia
- PANTS: Dynamite
- SHOES: Spring Shoes
- BELT: used to be my dads.
FAVOURITE SPOTS TO BIKE: The old carp road is probably my favorite road in ottawa. I also love riding in gatineau park.
FAVOURITE PLACE TO STOP AFTER A RIDE: Food trucks!
