NAME: Jenn Farr
OCCUPATION: Shit-disturber with a heart of gold/artist
WHERE YOU HEADING: Coming home from a shift at the Metro YMCA
WHAT ARE YOU RIDING:2001 Peugeot Urbano. I covered the branding with vinyl to make it less stealy.
WHY DO YOU RIDE: It’s cheap, I never get stuck in traffic and parking’s easy peasy. Growing up using public transport and bicycles — I never wanted a driver’s license. All the World Naked Bike Ride stuff started in 2004. BTW: we’re looking for new organizers for WNBR Ottawa!
IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT BIKING IN OTTAWA WHAT WOULD IT BE: 30km per hour speed limits in residential areas as well as the core. Seriously. We’d have way more cyclists on our roads and far fewer fatal collisions

FAVOURITE SPOTS TO BIKE: Cork Town Bridge. Arlington St … Laurier bike lanes. Areas slowed by construction or a festival.. Temporary gravel roads are thrilling. Strictly-speaking, it’s all commuting but I usually feel like I’m on a joy ride, even on my way to work!
FAVOURITE PLACE TO STOP AFTER A RIDE: A certain Cambridge Street front porch, Raw Sugar or home.
