I’m the first foreign member of the Tarik Saleh Bike Club.
As it says in the post card, there are two rules:
1) ride bikes
2) try not to be an ass.
Words to live by.
Here is my silver badge, next to the Pinko badge on my bike jacket. If you can look closely, the reflective paint on the fabric covering the zipper is starting to wear a bit, but otherwise the jacket survived the winter no problem.
You can order white buttons from Kent Peterson, but Cafepress charges an arm and a leg for shipping to Canada, so I ordered mine directly from the man himself (which is also the only way that you can get the silver ones, less legible but more exclusive).
What’s the point? there is no point, except those two rules!
and Tarik, I owe you a beer if you are ever in Toronto.
