Books and Bikes: Dandyhorse at the Library

I was going downtown yesterday with my 3-year old in the bike trailer, so I dropped by the Toronto Reference Library to check out the new Dandyhorse Magazine display on the main floor of the library.

I took a few photos of Tammy and Amelia of Dandyhorse introducing one of Toronto’s newest cyclists (she has a balance bike right now) to the new issue.

Click through via the Dandyhorse link below to see more photos of the display, and consider subscribing to Dandyhorse, Toronto’s only bike magazine!

The love of both reading and riding has been a common theme for dandyhorse throughout each of our 10 issues. We are big fans of the Toronto Public Library, and were thrilled when they asked us to put dandyhorse magazine in the stacks at certain TPL locations.

Selected items from the latest dandyhorse will be on display starting Saturday, July 13 on the main floor of the Toronto Reference Library to celebrate our partnership with the Toronto Public Library and the launch of our Summer Safety Issue.
