Holidays or whatever we are calling them

Those who know me know that I’m not really into the trading of “stuff” on holiday occasions. HOWEVER, I am totally into giving and getting functional gifts that help make life easier, all year round.

Short story: I once got small bike lights as a gift. One might think that would be a little odd since I have access to an entire bike shop’s worth of lights if I really need them. But I really appreciated those lights and I still use them a lot. It’s one of those things that can’t hurt to have extras of, plus when you need one and you aren’t near a shop, it is invaluable to have them kicking around. Moral: don’t underestimate a cyclist’s needs even if it seems like they have everything.

Any of the following type of items usually translates into a pretty decent gift:

Something that is used regularly, especially if having extras is helpful (instead of clutter)
Something that a person didn’t know they needed until they got it
Something that a person needs or wants but wouldn’t consider buying for themselves because it feels decadent

We have a few items that might fall into this category. So if you have a cyclist in your […]

Free Kids’ Bike Giveaway May 17 – Back by popular demand

SUNDAY MAY 17 2015, 10am – noon at Seedworks (126 Catharine Street North)

Summer is just around the corner and, due to popular demand from our last year’s event, Bike Locke and Downtown Bike Hounds are hosting our third bicycle giveaway, donation drive and tune-up party. Thanks to the great response (and your generous donations) we have decided to do it again. They’re all tuned up, polished and ready to be donated back out (free of charge) to new riders.

If you have children in need of a new bike, drop by for a test ride.
 If you’ve got basement bikes (adult sizes too) taking up space, drop them off to us – we’ll put them toward future donation drives.
 Does your child have a bike already? Bring in those kids’ bikes that have been neglected since September and we’ll give them free check-ups (due to limited resources, free checks are for kids’ bikes only!)

The Bike Locke/Bike Hounds donation drive takes place Sunday May 17 at 10am til noon in the parking lot of the Seedworks Urban Offices at 126 Catharine Street North.  All […]
