Anthony Author Anthony began contributing to Kitsilano.ca in October 2011, covering the hot-button cycling beat. A year-round bike commuter, he’s been commuting daily along the Off-Broadway bikeway rain or shine for over a decade. An import from the Maritimes, the Siren song of the mountains, water, and temperate climate keep Anthony in Vancouver. Despite the handicap of studying engineering for 13 years and working in aerospace, Anthony enjoys writing. Writing about cycling comes naturally, but he's not averse to scribbling on the joys of trying to raise a family in Vancouver, with occasional forays into politics and social media.
