Bike At Brickyard Beach
My daily driver, on old Apollo ten speed that I picked up at GIRO (our local recycling org) for $6 and converted to a fixed gear. I topped her off with a brown Brooks B17, the most comfortable saddle known to man. If you're curious about fixies, you can read about them here or scope some photos at this gallery.
Brickyard Beach is so called because it's on the site of a former brick factory and the beach is littered with pieces of bricks from way back when. It's also the site of the famous Potato Cannon event, the last of which was held this year on Canada Day. In the far distance, that's Mt. Benson hovering over Nanaimo on Vancouver Island.
