BOBBIN ALONG

Whether enjoying Calgary’s beautiful bike paths or making an urban commute, do so in style with the Bobbin Birdie.

This cute upright bike combines vintage with modern esthetics and is reminiscent of the city bikes typically ridden in the cycling-friendly city of Amsterdam. The UK-based company manufactures several styles of trendy bicycles, though the step-through Birdie makes for both a fashionable and comfortable ride.

The bike is available in robin’s egg blue, bright yellow, glossy red or black. The Birdie retails for $699 to $999 at BikeBike.

ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES 

BikeBike also carries several trendy accessories for bike lovers, such as saddles and bags from Brooks of England, metal and wicker baskets, children’s seats, helmets featuring funky designs and cute bells.

Local non-profit group Bike Calgary is offering an Urban Cycling Skills course on Saturday August 25. Learn to ride comfortably and safely on the cities busy roads and in residential areas.

The course takes place in front of Mountain Equipment Co-op from 8:45 am until 4:30 pm and costs $10. Book online at Bike Calgary. – Adele Brunnhofer
