Neighbourhood bike poster nails Toronto stereotypes

Spring is in the air, and cyclists have come out in droves to mark the changing of the weather from frigid to bearable. Naturally that means that bikes are are once again a fixture on Toronto streets, which makes this new poster from Sly Eye all the more apt.

There are plenty of functional stereotypes that define neighbourhoods, be it strollers on Roncesvalles or the beard and plaid parade on Dundas West. But what if the bikes were made to tell the story? Is it possible to classify Toronto neighbourhoods by bike type? Well, these folks have tried, and the results are both humorous and apt.

It's baskets for the Beaches, Bike Share for the downtown, a battered commuter for Parkdale, and deep-rims for Queen West. It's almost frustrating being so predictable as a city, isn't it? Not sure about the choice for Yonge and Eglinton, but overall this looks pretty good.

What do you think? Can you pick out a Toronto neighbourhood by its bikes? The Bicycle Identification Poster retails for $30 and is 16" x 24".
