Shiny and Old: Vintage Beauties

Download Flash Player to view this content.

This Sunday, the 19th Annual Spring Cruiser Ride and Show 'N Shine will bring together cycling enthusiasts and their favourite bikes. "Toxik Harald" Strasser runs the event from his Toxik Design Lab, where he custom paints bicycles of all vintages, new and old.

You could win a trophy for Best Vintage Original, Best Vintage Custom, Best Custom Chopper or Best Modern Road or Mountain Bike. Or perhaps you'd like to compete in the Bike Toss category, where you win a prize for chucking and old Peugeot ten-speed as far as you can.

The event starts runs 11 am - 6 pm at Toxik. It's right by the Bridgeport Canada Line Station so you can bring your bike on the train if you don't want to ride too far with just one gear.
