Susan Stokhof is the owner and founder of Le Velo Victoria. An on-line boutique specializing in stylish bicycle accessories.
Having spent 6 years without a car, Susan quickly recognized the challenges women face when using a bicycle as a form of transportation. In addition to an online boutique and traveling pop-up, Susan provides a vital voice in the push to normalize cycling in Victoria. From regular features on her blog about the citizen cycling movement (with a particular focus on women who cycle for transport), to sponsoring events that bring guest speakers to the island to inspire and inform.
Most importantly, Susan’s website presents powerful, rarely seen images of bicycle normalcy, in a region where sport and recreation still reign supreme.
“We’re attempting to promote a lifestyle we want to see. The more people buy into the idea that cycling is a normal activity that millions partake in every single day, the more likely we are to build better cycling infrastructure. I believe we need to be the change we want to see”. With this in mind, Susan started Le Vélo Victoria where they provide elegant solutions for everyday cycling challenges.
