Fraser Damoff's Story

Fraser Damoff's Story

I grew up in Oakville and I explored every inch of it on my bicycle. Whether it was visiting friends in Bronte or taking swimming lessons at Centennial Pool, I grew up exploring Oakville on two wheels. When we are kids, cycling is our first chance at freedom and an opportunity to explore the world beyond our immediate neighbourhood. As we get older, car commercials lead us to believe we can better connect with the world around us; better explore our world, by encasing ourselves in a steel automobile with glass windows separating ourselves from the outside world. For me, I went close to half a decade without riding a bike before I had the opportunity to fall in love with cycling again, oddly enough at a Cycle Oakville Group Ride through Kerr Village. Now five years later, I ride my bike with my wife to get groceries, to get coffee, meet up with friends at a local pub, and occasionally ride my bike to work. I look forward to an Oakville of the future, where we have a connected grid of cycling infrastructure that connects not only within Oakville, but with its neighbours Burlington, Mississauga, and Milton. Oakville can be more than just livable, it can be ridable too!
