With a nod of respect to Vancouver’s cycle commuters, racers, bmx’ers and dirt-jumpers, the folks behind Cycle Chic Social would like to call attention to the lesser known category of cyclists: the unhurried, fashionable set.
Copenhagen is known for its casual urban bikers who get around without 21 speeds or spandex. Vancouver too has a growing category of well-dressed “Slow Bicycle Movement” enthusiasts.
Meet and mingle with other design-savvy cyclists at Cycle Chic Social June 29, at 8pm, in the old Boneta Space. The event boasts a live fashion installation and bike demos by Fashionilla, Vancouver swimwear label Cuchè Bikinis, and Opus Bikes, among other local clothing and bike shops. Add nibbles by dessert ace Earnest Ice Cream, and the $12 tickets seem quite reasonable.
