During Spring Break 2016 I went to visit family in Toronto and do my first interview for Each for All. That’s Reba Plummer, co-executive director of the Urbane Cyclist worker-coop which began in 1997. She’s in the new store on College Street in the heart of the city and right on a very busy commuter bike route. Reba loves bikes – she’s been a bike messenger, created her own line of messenger bags, takes cycling holidays, loves the cycling lifestyle, and is a cycling activist. She took me on a tour of the store, which was brand spanking new, I saw the warehouse, parts department, lunchroom, etc. Then we sat down for a discussion. I asked Reba how this worker co-op first got started?
