#IBikeBecause

We were spending too much time in the social media cesspool of negative cyclist opinion and it was bumming us out real bad, man - so decided to try and turn that frown upside down by asking our network why they choose to ride bikes.

As expected, the answers brightened our spirit and made us smile. The responses fell into a few key categories and here they all are for your enjoyment.

We hope you smile too.

Oh ya - we also ran a contest for a $20 gift card to our shop for those entries that tagged us. And the winner is.......you'll have to scroll to the bottom to find out.  Cheeky, we know.

New Brand Announcement: Say Hello To Benno Bikes

A little bit about Benno Bikes -

To many designers in the bike industry, the art of making simple casual bikes looks boring and is hardly worth their time. To me, it’s a challenge to inspire people to use their bike more often and incorporate cycling into their everyday life. It’s not about how far and fast you ride or how many calories you burn.  It’s about creating a more efficient and fun way to explore your town. I am just a simple guy that likes to ride his bike for fun and easy transportation. My objections and problems are the same as yours and if I can design a bike that inspires me to ride, I’m pretty sure you’ll like to ride it, too.

The Ballooner range. Upright enough, light enough, fun enough, cute enough to make your bicycle riding habit irresistible.

Castlegar -> Penticton on the Columbia Western and Kettle Valley Rail Trails

About to pedal off into the wilderness. From L to R: Jesse, Sean, Cory, and Tom.

A handful of us went on a 6-day rail trail adventure from Castlegar to Penticton on the Columbia Western and Kettle Valley rail lines. We drove a car out to Penticton then shuttled back to Castlegar and left another car there.

Weather conditions were HOT! No rain at all and the smokey air was never an issue - in fact, it seemed to get better as the trip went along. Even crazier: the day after we rolled through the Myra/McCullogh/Kelowna area a huge fire erupted not far from where we had been. That was close.

Please enjoy this photo essay of the adventure. If you have any questions, leave us a comment below.
