Eric Stonehouse | Radbike
Our friend Mr Eric Stonehouse currently lives in Canmore, a small town hidden in the Canadian Rockies. He is a world famous baby interpreter, and convinced us that some of Ada’s first words were ‘tasty’ and ‘Geoff Janz’. As you may notice from the images, Eric spends a large amount of time with bikes… riding them, breaking them and fixing them. He’s also a rather fabulous artist and just completed an exhibition with his partner in crime (and bikes) Paul K.
