I want to ride my bicycle ... i want to ride my bike ... I want to ride my bicycle ...
Queen is right. I do want to ride my bicycle, but the snow falling in Victoria is not helping me out in this department. My hat is tipped to those die hard riders that I have seen over the past few days persevering through the slush and ice. What has inspired my cycle craze? Well... this:
When I arrived to work this week, this beauty had appeared in the showroom. It's a beautiful bike from afar, but up close, it's exquisite.
Custom built by Troy Woodburn of Pro City Cycle, this bike is really more "art" than a bicycle ... there are several hand made wooden parts including the seat post and the handlebars (and many others that I won't pretend to know the name of!).
The bike has our name on it, so I hope this means that it's here to stay - I think it fits in well with our Cassina Nest sofa and the Corbusier LC1 chairs.
If you would like to see this work of art in person, drop by our showroom at 2500 Rock Bay Avenue, and if you'd like to meet the creator, find him at Pro City Cycle at 338 Catherine Street.
