[HOLIDAY MARKET] ⠀
Join us on December 16th, we’ll be at @seaciderhouse Picot holiday market. Holiday Market runs on Dec. 16 & 17th with a different group of vendors on each day. ⠀
⠀
If you’re looking for a warm shopping experience this is the place to be. ⠀
⠀
★ We’ve got some new bags & panniers for the stylish rider in your life.  If you can’t decide, gift cards are always a great option. ⠀
⠀
☞ Full confession. I love taste testing. I’ll be enjoying flights of cider while I’m there. My personal favs include Flagship, it's one of only a few commercial ciders in the world free of added sulphites, great for anyone with sensitivities. This cider is light, considered ultra dry but offers a nose (you see, just like wine tasting or a perfume sampling) of anise and cinnamon framed by soft tannins which is one of the reasons I liked the one so much. ⠀
⠀
Not only is the Sea Cider Farmhouse a beautiful setting for a pop-up or just about any kind of an event! Come out and play!!⠀
⠀
☞ see you on the 16th of December ⠀
⠀
Follow the event and discover the vendors #picotholidaymarket! ⠀
A warm thank you to @picot & @seaciderhouse for hosting such a warm event.

[CYCLE STYLE]⠀
⠀
We talk about ‘cycle style’ a lot , but what is it❓⠀
⠀
To us, true style comes from within, it's your personality, the way you dress, talk, walk and the way you ride.⠀
⠀
With our curated line of stylish bicycle accessories, your bicycle too becomes an extension of who you are. Think of your bicycle and the accessories you use as the classy little black dress that’s always in style.⠀
⠀
As we await Victoria’s 2nd protected bike lane for Fort St.; our mild climate, moderate topography, scenic routes and compact density, we have many of the ingredients that attract citizens to cycle as a means of mobility and all exists here. ⠀
⠀
As citizens start using the protected bike lanes you will see something magical ✨ happen. People will naturally slow down their riding pace, get comfortable, and more frequently you will see people riding without helmets. The reason for this phenomenon is simple, people begin to feel free and safe behind protected cycle tracks. ⠀
⠀
★ It is our destiny, and time to embrace what the Dutch already know, that cycling is no big deal. You just hop on your bike and go; no spandex or reflective gear. Just you, your personal style and your bike.⠀
⠀
☞ Share your personal style with us, we'd love to see it! ⠀
⠀
☞ Tag us with a photo of you, your cycle style and your bike with #CarsAreSoYesterday for a chance to be featured on or feed! Or just tell us your story. ⠀
⠀
Remember, we’re looking for photos on how cycling should be, free, happy, no helmets or funny cycling gear.  Just you, your cycling style and a smiling face 😊 we want to show the change we wish to see. ⠀
⠀
Happy Saturday my friends 😊

[PASSION Red]⠀
⠀
Signifies a pioneering spirit, leadership, and is the color of physical movement. It also implies strong-will and can give confidence to those who are shy. ⠀
⠀
★ Today is the perfect day to use the passion Red umbrella on your bicycle. It’s your day to shine and give confidence to others who need a leader to show them the way to drier cycling days. ⠀
⠀
☞ Join the revolution and change the street view with us! Every moment needs a leader, join us in changing the street view. ⠀
⠀
Passion Red Storm Umbrella, keeping you dry from the top down. The umbrellas we've chosen attach to the senz° bicycle holder which will allow you to ride your bicycle, hands free. Now you can keep your personal cycle style. ⠀

Our new friend has been waiting for the rain to fall but, I have to tell you that I’ve been enjoying this unseasonably beautiful weather. The rain will be here soon enough. And what’s better than being prepared. ⠀

Happy cycling, walking and hiking in the rain Rosemary 😊

⠀
Who doesn’t enjoy a happy postcard or two? ⠀
⠀
Both of these postcards describe my life to a “T”. ⠀
⠀
☕️ Espresso is my morning jam and I can’t imagine starting my day without one... not because I’m addicted to caffeine (there’s less caffeine in espresso than a pressed coffee) but because of the ritual of drinking it. It makes me slow down, if just for a moment, to enjoy the goodness of it and start the day a bit slower.⠀
⠀
🚲 (Why can’t someone create an upright stepthrough Bike emoji! Sigh)⠀
⠀
The post cards are from my Dutch in-laws who live 20km outside of Amsterdam. On the back side of the card, with the stepthrough bike and clearly happy woman, there is a lovely inscription from my mother-in-law that says in part, “This card says so much about cycling, it gives you freedom and happiness.” ⠀
⠀
On that note she’s right, you see, even though the bicycle is used for utilitarian purposes, the Dutch still enjoy being on their bikes. In fact, my husband’s parents still cycle tour and they are in their 70/80’s. Cycling brings happiness, health and longevity.

[Most Stylish Bicycle Accessory contest]⠀
⠀
★ Every Tweed Ride we offer up a little something for the most stylish bicycle accessory contest. Peter was chosen because he we felt he had a thorough grasp of what it means to be a Tweed Rider. ⠀⠀
⠀
★ A vintage bicycle. Spoke cards? Beautiful basket? A garland of summer foliage? A pannier made of tweed? Any or all of these fit the bill. But it was Peter's individual taste that brought it all together; his era clothing and pup in a basket and handmade wine carrier. ⠀
⠀⠀
★ We want to acknowledge the efforts made by this individual Tweed Rider who raised the bar and lent “tone” to the event. ⠀
⠀
Congratulations Peter, we're sending you our very special Hotelfietsbel! It's a vintage inspired brass hotel bell from the past and we think it will look amazing on your bicycle!⠀
⠀
☞  Special note: over time the brass will tarnish and develop a beautiful patina indicative of a vintage bi-gone era. Like it shiny, use a brass polish and buff it up, it's up to you to make it your own. ⠀
⠀
A special thank you to @Victoria_News for capturing this great photo of Peter and his pup, Sir David😊🐾

It's a curious contest, for it relies on not only a knowledge of your particular bicycle, but also a thorough grasp of what it means to be a Tweed Rider. ⠀ ⠀ ☞ A vintage bicycle. Spoke cards? Beautiful basket? A garland of summer foliage? A pannier made of tweed? Any or all of these fit the bill. But it is up to the individual taste of the tweed rider for it to all come together for their bicycle. ⠀ ⠀ ★★ We are interested in quality over quantity. We want to acknowledge the efforts made by individual Tweed Riders to raise the bar and lend “tone” to the event.⠀ ⠀ To this end, we'll be offering up a gift card toward a stylish bicycle accessory that will help you keep the "style" in your ride long after the event. ⠀ ⠀ Best of luck!

☞  I had the best experience cycling in #YVR a few weeks back. ⠀
⠀
I road my borrowed bike everyday from Kitsalano to Stanley Park for a conference. I saw 4 @mobi_bikes stations on my ride! Now that's progress!⠀
⠀
Friends told me about the power struggle between car users and cyclists and that I should ride with caution. ⠀
⠀
☞  My experience was nothing like that. I traveled about 80% of the time in protected bike lanes and the rest was in fairly slow-moving traffic. I felt fairly respected by all road users and I will ride again at the next opportunity. ⠀
⠀
I'm sure the power struggle between shared road users exists in Vancouver but I feel a slight shift in the mindset of people driving cars where they are developing a higher level of respect toward people on bikes. I'm sure you'll agree that there is a long way to go towards achieving absolute respect for all road users and there needs to come a time where it is much more difficult to receive a drivers license to help achieve this. But overall Vancouver is in its way to being a cycling city. ⠀
