So, I know it seems as though i’ve been crushing on bikes a little hard lately. Maybe it’s because I myself have grown particularly attached to my little black beauty – recent Kijiji purchase – or perhaps it’s a bigger movement.
The Good Bike Project is one of the many reasons why I love this city.
It all began when Vanessa Nicholas and Caroline Macfarlane of OCAD, lent a bit of their creativity to an abandoned bicycle out side their work.
What followed? An enthusiastic response from the public and a new form of street art. Now, with 30 color coded bikes displayed around the city, The Good Bike Project is touching the hearts of even the most surprising of citizens.
It’s funny what a little splash of color can accomplish with motivated minds.
