  1. My name is Kenneth Stanislaus, and I work as a Behavior Technician in Montreal, Quebec.
    I am writing to get information on the possibility of receiving some bikes as donations for our kids who come from low income families, in which many can’t afford to purchase bikes.

    The school in which I work, is one of the lower socio-economic regions on the island of Montreal.
    We face many issues on a daily basis, all while trying to encourage physical fitness on a regular basis even through our programs within school.

    Bikes just put a smile on a child’s face.

    I hope we can communicate about this request.

  2. Hi,
    I would like to be part of the further development of cycling infrastructure, within Canadian cities. I’ve been riding for over 40 years . . . in Canada, Europe & the US – perhaps there’s something that I can do to help this progress along.

    I’d like to better understand where the best opportunity is to approaching the various cities to promote & facilitate a transition towards fewer engineers & perhaps more cyclist input, in making those infrastructure changes towards safer riding. From what I’ve noticed – we have a lot of healthy engineers out here in the west who don’t look like they are frequently riding, and yet they are making some pretty important decisions on behalf of the riding & communting public.

    My background is in sales – predominantly towards the public sector, so I am comfortable with approaching cities from a sales perspective to sell & negotiate better, progressive planning in this direction. I also have ankylosing spondylitis, and find that cycling helps me deal with the pain associated with this form of systemic arthritis. I’ve also heard & rode with folks dealing with: rheumatoid arthritis, MS, fibromyalgia, schlerderma, asthma, etc., and we all agree that cycling did wonders for our symptoms, depression & fatigue.

    I think this perspective may be of benefit, especially where attempting to ally with proponents for safe cycling for folks of all ages (especially kids!)

    please contact me & let me know how I can assist in efforts to promote & create better cycling opportunities for all Canadians!
