EVENT: Sun, June 22 – Get Ur’Bent with Urbane

Date:  Sunday, June 22, 2014 – 13:0016:00

Urbane Cyclist is hosting a recumbent open day!

Ever fancied trying something new?

We at Urbane are opening our doors for customers to try our wide range of recumbent bicycles and tricycles. All are welcome regardless of experience!

Urbane Cyclist have been proudly supporting Canada’s recumbent and trike communities since opening our doors in 1997. Offering cycling mobility to people for whom regular cycles might not quite fit the bill.

We’re proud of our range of recumbents and trikes from companies such as Bachetta, HP Velotechnik, HASE, Catrike and more. It’s a completely different cycling experience.

Demonstration cycles available for trial are:

HP Velotechnik Scorpion FS 20
With the Scorpion fs the roughest journey becomes an exhilarating ride.

Pot holes, cobblestones, gravel roads: the condition of your way ahead can be shocking indeed. From now on you are going to look forward to ride those little sweet challenges. Once you want to leave the beaten track, you are in need of a quick responding suspension, perfect roadholding, precise steering and an optimum of steadiness. Now, the Scorpion fs is your perfect choice.

HP Velotechnik Scorpion FS 26
Even your first look at the Scorpion fs 26 will get your pulse racing. The powerful 26-inch rear wheel and striking chassis suspension make it unmistakably clear: This speed trike is hungry for asphalt and adrenalin! But the succinct design features also provide impressively stable road holding and make it extremely easy to traverse obstacles.

HP Velotechnik Gekko
Gekko – Your easy entry into recumbent triking. Leave your daily grind for a fast fun ride!

Time for more enjoyment in life. With the agile Gekko touring trike, more than just your posture changes while cycling. From now on, treat yourself to luxurious comfort in the recumbent seat and enjoy all the riding fun on three wheels.

HP Velotechnik Streetmachine GTE
The Streetmachine Gte has been designed to to create what is probably the best long distance touring bike you can buy. The ride is exhilarating – fast and controllable – yet you can carry enough gear for a world tour with minimum compromise to handling.

ICE (Inspired Cycle Engineering) Sprint 26
The ICE Sprint folding trike is the ultimate fusion of sporting performance and long-distance comfort. Whether you’re carving bends, pushing your speed or on a tour, you’ll be ready for the challenge. With a mid-height seating position and ICE’s renowned handling the Sprint is a trike which has to be explored.

Hase Kettweisel Handtrike
Real mobility instead of makeshifts: The robust design and technology, ergonomic hand drive, and hub gears will get you almost anywhere. The joy of independent movement is a strong motor – and it increases with the riding fun that this KETTWIESEL brings.

OH YEAH: Downtown Vancouver businesses’ attitudes towards bike lanes have changed in the last 5 years

“We want downtown to be accessible by all modes of transportation and I think if we say, ‘Well, we’re not interested in separated bike lanes because of this and that, we’re going to basically exclude ourselves from a growing market of people that commute to work by bike as well as people that are living […]

OH YEAH: The Origin Story of Sunnyside Bike Park – An Advocacy Success Story

A few members of the Toronto Off-Road Bicycle Association (TORBA) approached the new Ward 13 Councillor, Sarah Doucette to ask what the City was going to do […]

NEWS: Should cyclists be allowed to ride through stop signs?

Obviously, yes.  Just like drivers are.  Spend any time at a stop sign and watch how many cars do “rolling stops” if there ar no other moving vehicles near the intersection.  Spoiler alert: almost every driver does rolling stops, just like cyclists do. In fact, when I learned to drive in Newmarket, a stop sign […]

SHOP: Brand new bike shop a shrine for serious cyclists

Well, the headline is a little stupid… it should read “…shrine for roadie cyclists”, as “serious” doesn’t only apply to those willing to drop thousands of dollars on a bike. It applies equally to the tens (hundreds?) of thousands of Torontonians who are serious about using their bike to get around the city – to […]
