What is the best thing about Montreal summers? Festivals? Cute boys having picnics at Lafontaine in their cut offs and American Apparel tank tops? The hot girls on their fixed-gear bikes who, even in the blazing weather, are still wearing high-top sneakers?
Recently a group of us were sitting around – copious amounts of wine and gin consumed – and we got talking about how much we effing love our city. We also started sharing stories about what we love most about Montreal summers. We agreed that the combination of killer bike paths, bike culture, homogay lifestyle (bike) fashion, and hot people on bikes, is what makes a Montreal summer ridonculously fun.
LOOK! LESBIANS ARE SO CUTE ON BIKES! YOU CAN BE A HOT/CUTE LESBIAN/HOMO ON A BIKE TOO!!
We at the Gaily obvs like our bikes, evidenced by Ty’s article “BIXI Montreal – Sweaty and oh-so fabulous” and Erika’s insistence on you riding a f*cking bike in her “6 ways to rock/survive unemployment“.
So we totes thought that YOU – our readers – should come for a huge queer bike ride with The Gaily! Our first Ride a F*cking Bike will be happening on May 21st, 2011 and we will be leaving from Lionel Groulx metro at 1:00PM..
You should probs ride a gay bike like this:
Or you could just ride one like this:
THERE IS MORE!
But that is not it! Pack your picnic baskets boys and girls because we’ll be having a big gay picnic at Park Lafontaine after the ride. We’ll be ending our ride in the village so you will have plenty of time to buy drinks and food and haul ass up the hill to the park for lunch.
Friend of the Gaily and resident bicycle know-it-all – Kayla – has provided the following 3 easy steps to prepare for your f*cking bike ride:
1. Make sure you have a bike that works well, and fits you.
If it’s your first time riding this year, and you haven’t gotten a tune-up since last summer, make sure to see your nearest bike shop. You don’t want to be stuck on a path with a flat tire, or broken gear, and slow down the whole group.
