Did you know? The late Ben Davidson, renowned Haida Gwaii artist and CASA champion, created the buttercycle originally in 2014 for a cycle tour from Haida Gwaii to Edmonton. It was brought to CASA in 2015 for our very first Cycle Tour and continues to hold great meaning to all participants of our Minds Over Mountains Cycle Tours.
The design was originally made to honour all of the children who have passed before their parents. In the wings of the butterfly are the faces of a boy and a girl. The girl has a labret in her lower lip, which is also the eye of the butterfly. The butterfly’s proboscis is also the drop bar of a bike, while the body and legs of the butterfly are the abstract of the bike’s frame and wheels.
