I Love Riding in the City
NAME: Sylvestre Calin
OCCUPATION: Owner of Brakeless
Where do you live and what’s it like riding in your city?
Montreal is a great city to live in. As for riding in the city if you don’t count the mad drivers you can always have a cool ride. Since Mount Royal is in the middle of the city, it’s an amazing oasis right in the middle of my urban life. A place where you can push your limits while enjoying the scenery.
What’s been your favorite city to ride in, and why?
My heart is in Montreal but when you need a good adrenaline rush, New York is the best. When you ride all the way on Broadway without taking your feet off the pedals, all your senses are fulfilled. Your mind needs to be sharp, you have to anticipate all the moves of pedestrians, cars, taxis. From one minute to the next, you reach a new part of town, cross a bridge you’re in Brooklyn. Wow I need to go back very soon—I want my adrenaline fix!
Why do you love riding in the city?
Riding in the city is the only way I can enjoy traffic and my music, while I discover what’s going on.
When I ride in the city,
My feet feed the motion,
I own the city
Brakeless is my emotion.
