Bike Culture

Vancouverites are total green freaks.  I mean that in the most endearing way possible because it’s good to be green.  UBC makes it very easy to use sustainable methods of transportation by providing the U-Pass at a ridiculously low monthly fee that’s basically included with one’s tuition.  Also, there’s a student run bike kitchen for all who are interested in purchasing bikes.  Since bikes can be mounted in front of a bus for extended trips, it’s actually very easy to travel around with just a bike and a U-Pass.

Because of these programs, there’s a significant number of bicycles in UBC and bike racks to boot.  This brings us to today’s photograph.  It’s a bike parked at one of UBC’s numerous bike racks.  Taken in November of 2010 on film, I found the red of the bicycle to be quite striking against the dark grey of the rack itself.  It just seemed right to me to take this photograph because of how a vast number of UBC students make it a point to try and keep green by using sustainable transport like bicycles and public transit.
