WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BECOME A CYCLING CITY?⠀
⠀
The more people buy into the idea that cycling is a normal everyday activity that millions partake in every single day the more likely we are to design urban spaces that connect people with place. ⠀
⠀
I want to take people on a journey where sharing stories helps them to see how cycling can be a part of their daily lives and the first mode of transport they consider. I believe that we need to be the change we want to see.⠀
⠀
★ I also believe cities can learn from one another and I’m most interested in exploring urban cycling from a Dutch perspective; how they developed and fostered a cycling city (country). How they use policy, infrastructure, planning, and culture within the context of urban cycling in the Netherlands.⠀
⠀
This coming summer, 2018, I am going to The Netherlands where I will immerse myself in the Dutch lifestyle and experience true urban cycling in the city of bikes (Amsterdam) that embraces people and place. ⠀
⠀
I’ll also share glimpses of my life during these 3 weeks where I’ll share ways we can interpret Dutch infra into our own urban context. ⠀

⠀
If you’re looking for a warm shopping experience this is the place to be. ⠀
⠀
★ We’ve got some new bags & panniers for the stylish rider in your life.  If you can’t decide, gift cards are always a great option. ⠀
⠀
☞ Full confession. I love taste testing. I’ll be enjoying flights of cider while I’m there. My personal favs include Flagship, it's one of only a few commercial ciders in the world free of added sulphites, great for anyone with sensitivities. This cider is light, considered ultra dry but offers a nose (you see, just like wine tasting or a perfume sampling) of anise and cinnamon framed by soft tannins which is one of the reasons I liked the one so much. ⠀
⠀
Not only is the Sea Cider Farmhouse a beautiful setting for a pop-up or just about any kind of an event! Come out and play!!⠀
⠀
☞ see you on the 16th of December ⠀
⠀
Follow the event and discover the vendors #picotholidaymarket! ⠀

[CYCLE STYLE]⠀
⠀
We talk about ‘cycle style’ a lot , but what is it❓⠀
⠀
To us, true style comes from within, it's your personality, the way you dress, talk, walk and the way you ride.⠀
⠀
With our curated line of stylish bicycle accessories, your bicycle too becomes an extension of who you are. Think of your bicycle and the accessories you use as the classy little black dress that’s always in style.⠀
⠀
As we await Victoria’s 2nd protected bike lane for Fort St.; our mild climate, moderate topography, scenic routes and compact density, we have many of the ingredients that attract citizens to cycle as a means of mobility and all exists here. ⠀
⠀
As citizens start using the protected bike lanes you will see something magical ✨ happen. People will naturally slow down their riding pace, get comfortable, and more frequently you will see people riding without helmets. The reason for this phenomenon is simple, people begin to feel free and safe behind protected cycle tracks. ⠀
⠀
★ It is our destiny, and time to embrace what the Dutch already know, that cycling is no big deal. You just hop on your bike and go; no spandex or reflective gear. Just you, your personal style and your bike.⠀
⠀
☞ Share your personal style with us, we'd love to see it! ⠀
⠀
☞ Tag us with a photo of you, your cycle style and your bike with #CarsAreSoYesterday for a chance to be featured on or feed! Or just tell us your story. ⠀
⠀
Remember, we’re looking for photos on how cycling should be, free, happy, no helmets or funny cycling gear.  Just you, your cycling style and a smiling face 😊 we want to show the change we wish to see. ⠀
⠀
Happy Saturday my friends 😊

Who doesn’t enjoy a happy postcard or two? ⠀
⠀
Both of these postcards describe my life to a “T”. ⠀
⠀
☕️ Espresso is my morning jam and I can’t imagine starting my day without one... not because I’m addicted to caffeine (there’s less caffeine in espresso than a pressed coffee) but because of the ritual of drinking it. It makes me slow down, if just for a moment, to enjoy the goodness of it and start the day a bit slower.⠀
⠀
🚲 (Why can’t someone create an upright stepthrough Bike emoji! Sigh)⠀
⠀
The post cards are from my Dutch in-laws who live 20km outside of Amsterdam. On the back side of the card, with the stepthrough bike and clearly happy woman, there is a lovely inscription from my mother-in-law that says in part, “This card says so much about cycling, it gives you freedom and happiness.” ⠀
⠀
On that note she’s right, you see, even though the bicycle is used for utilitarian purposes, the Dutch still enjoy being on their bikes. In fact, my husband’s parents still cycle tour and they are in their 70/80’s. Cycling brings happiness, health and longevity.

[Most Stylish Bicycle Accessory contest]⠀
⠀
★ Every Tweed Ride we offer up a little something for the most stylish bicycle accessory contest. Peter was chosen because he we felt he had a thorough grasp of what it means to be a Tweed Rider. ⠀⠀
⠀
★ A vintage bicycle. Spoke cards? Beautiful basket? A garland of summer foliage? A pannier made of tweed? Any or all of these fit the bill. But it was Peter's individual taste that brought it all together; his era clothing and pup in a basket and handmade wine carrier. ⠀
⠀⠀
★ We want to acknowledge the efforts made by this individual Tweed Rider who raised the bar and lent “tone” to the event. ⠀
⠀
Congratulations Peter, we're sending you our very special Hotelfietsbel! It's a vintage inspired brass hotel bell from the past and we think it will look amazing on your bicycle!⠀
⠀
☞  Special note: over time the brass will tarnish and develop a beautiful patina indicative of a vintage bi-gone era. Like it shiny, use a brass polish and buff it up, it's up to you to make it your own. ⠀
⠀
A special thank you to @Victoria_News for capturing this great photo of Peter and his pup, Sir David😊🐾

[RECHARGE]⠀ ⠀ ★ Everyone needs time away to recharge and energize. We're traveling around the Sea to Ski highway and all the goodness we can find along the way. ⠀ ⠀ ★ My husband's family is visiting from the Netherlands and they're all about seeing and as much wilderness as we can find. ⠀ ⠀ Not on bikes this trip, we've got a camper van and a van, so it's a bit like glamping for us. ⠀ ⠀ ★ our first night we had a teenager black bear walk through the campsite. It was the first bear, in the wild, that my sister-law has seen, it was pretty exciting!⠀ ⠀ ★ Find beauty everywhere.
