Dwyane – Ontario Guy Turned Fresh Air Loving Cyclist

It doesn’t get any easier finding people for this blog than it did today. I just closed my car door and turned to the sidewalk and saw Dwyane hopping on his bike to go for a little cruise. I politely stopped him and explained to him what I was up to. At first Dwyane was a little reluctant to have his picture taken, but I showed him the website and told him a bit more about it and he gave me an enthusiastic “Lets do it”. This of course made my day 🙂 Here is what Dwyane had to say.

1. Where are you from Dwayne?

2. Why did you moved to Calgary of all places?
Work related.

3. Do you like living in Calgary?
Yes and no. I like living here, it’s just a little expensive. 

4. What do you like about Calgary?
Fresh Air! And the mountains. Ya you can’t beat that man.

5. And what do you like to do for fun? Other than ride your bike?
I like to go up to the mountains, get away from the city. Ya know, just be with nature. You can’t beat that man, it’s beautiful. 

6. If you had to describe Calgary to someone what would you say?
A happening city, a growing city, a new city with potential.

7. Have you ever ridden a horse?
No, YES YES! I have. Not successfully, but I have (laughter).

* One of the coolest things about Dwyane was that after the interview was over he had a few questions for me and we continued our conversation. I kind of wished I was still recording, but either way it was a nice conversation with a nice guy. Thanks Dwyane!

Kris – Quick Answer Kris

The other night I met up with an old friend of mine from Vancouver who currently lives in Calgary and he introduced me to his friend Kris. I mentioned the blog and he agreed to answer a few of my questions. His answers are short and to the point. Nothing wrong with that haha 🙂

Thanks Kris!

* When I first started this blog I came up with a set of standard questions that I was going to use for everyone, but since I started doing it I feel like the blog will be better served to use those questions as more of a loose outline rather than standard questions. So from here on out I will be doing that. Here’s one of the last interviews with only those standard questions.
