HOK #004: Trent Drummond


Meet Trent Drummond.

I always ride my bike. I hope to bike to school every day all year, or almost every day. The bus, it’s nice, but it’s not for me. It’s too warm and tiring. I fall asleep. It also seems to take a really long time for a bus to get from one point to another point. I can just do it faster on my bike. I’m a safe rider. My Mom says “no one is looking for you” about the traffic, so I’m pretty careful. I do all my own bike maintenance – I have a shop at home. First, it takes a lot of expenses off me – it’s super expensive when you get someone else to do maintenance. And I just really find it fun. I break my bikes a lot. One time I was crossing Island Park, and it has a really short light, so I get up and crank down really hard ready to go, and I snapped the entire rear hub off the rim. I had to walk my bike all the way home, but I had another wheel sitting around so I just threw the hub on that and put it all back on. Collected by Kate Settle.

Humans of Kitchissippi is a special street photography project designed to introduce readers to some of the people who live, work, and play in Kitchissippi. Each instalment of HOK contains three elements: a photo, a name, and a quote from the subject that reveals a little bit about who they are. View our small, but growing, ongoing collection of humans right here.
