Photo cred - Cyclemon
As we all know, Montreal is loaded with bikes. But have you ever wondered about what kinds of people you can find riding on them? The French design company Cyclemon created a hilarious and adorable series of prints illustrating stereotypes of types of bikers and the types of cycles you'd expect to see them on. We've re-posted shots of the lovely pictures for you, along with a little info about where you can find these sorts of people around Montreal.
