"Mariposa TT" by Greg Curnoe
(Simon Fraser University)
In the most recent issue of the Canadian literary magazine, the Walrus, there is a very nice story by Bill Reynolds on cycling. Although it seems he and his friends have been particularly unlucky with respect to accidents, it is still a good read. You can find it here.
I was particularly touched by the story of Canadian artist Greg Curnoe, who lived in London, Ontario until fatally struck by a car while on a group ride in 1992. He loved bicycles, and made them the subject of his art. He was a great fan of Mariposa bicycles, hand-built by Mike Barry in Toronto until his retirement last year.
Robert Fulford, the cultural critic, wrote about Greg Curnoe's art for the National Post in 2001.
Ride safely, everyone.
