Today we're crushing over the new Clarijs panniers. They are seriously the happiest panniers we've carried. If their bold, bright colours and patterns don't turn your head then maybe the practicality of these beauties will.
Let's get into it.

I had the chance to take part in the Tour Disaster on Saturday, July 26th. It was a simulation / scavenger hunt / race that saw cyclists pedal around Victoria and hit 16 checkpoints. In theory, cyclists would have an easier time navigating obstacles around the city after a major disaster. A similar activity took place in Portland in mid July, called the Disaster Relief Trials, but it was also a showcase of cargo bikes.
Le Vélo in collaboration with GVCC and the CRD kicked off a speaker series aimed at examining how to transform Victoria into a world-class cycling city.In the first talk, Chris and Melissa Bruntlett of modacitylife.com present a fresh perspective a fresh perspective on cycling by highlighting the everyday act of pleasurable (and sustainable) mobility. Le Vélo and Olena Russell kicked off the event with our Top 16 Myths on Urban Cycling. Lets dive in!
Presenting a fresh perspective on cycling, Chris and Melissa Bruntlett highlight the everyday act of pleasurable (and sustainable) mobility. Utility over speed, street clothes rather than lycra.
Chris and Melissa will present how city riding can be simple, styling and fun. Be prepared to be wowed with #cyclechicfilms.
Back in January we had the pleasure of interviewing Melissa for our "In Conversation with" series, a blog series of interviews with interesting people who ride bikes, check out the article here. July 11th is your opportunity to meet Melissa and Chris up close and personal.
We're also having a pop-up at the event! Check out our blow out sale!
Let's dive into the details of the event.
