OH YEAH! Welcoming a New Supporter: VeloLifestyle

BikingToronto would like to welcome our newest supporter: Velolifestyle, a *Canadian* online source for lifestyle cycling.  You’ll be seeing their ad over in the sidebar of the site for the next 12 months, as well as in our email newsletter.

A quick check of their website will likely make you smile, as it did me. In addition to dutch bikes, cargo bikes and regular bike accessories like bags and panniers, they also have some really fun bike accessories like pizza cutters, spoke reflectors, wallets made from bike tubes and coffee holders.  I’ve already got a huge “Want/Need” list started. Haha.

I’m also VERY excited about their physical location, their Allo Velo bike boutique and café in Montreal.  Bikes + Coffee? Oh yeah.  They even rent Triobikes for families visiting Montreal.  Sign me UP!  I’m all over that!  Planning a trip now.
