Weekend Cruising!

This post has kindly been sponsored by Lochside Cycles, a fabulous Canadian company.  All opinions are my own.

When I was a kid, I always admired my friends who had a basket on their bike.  I know that this probably sounds so silly, but it's true!  I would weave flowers that we picked (read: dandelions) through the front of the basket to create a beautiful floral centrepiece (with my friends permission if course!).  We would fill the basket full of our favourite toys and head to the park.  I don't know what exactly it was about baskets on bikes that I loved so much, but the love was most definitely there.

Well, here I am, 30+ years later (but who's counting, ha!) and my dream has finally come true!  I'm so beyond excited to have had the opportunity to take a Lochside bike for a ride.  The smile that came across my face when I first hopped on the bike was simply ridiculous.  It was a smile of pure joy,  I felt like I had been transported back to my childhood with one quick pedal.

If you haven't heard of Lochside Cycles before, let me introduce you!  The Canadian bike company is based out of Victoria, BC and they have created a phenomenal business, taking their passion for cycling and combining it with their appreciation for great style.  Their line of bikes include single speeds, roadstersstep-throughs like mine, the beautiful Lovelo as well as practical accessories!  Their classic colours and attention to detail make their line of bikes eye-catching and dreamy!

The beautiful stitching, comfortable leather seat and the ability to change gears with ease are just a few of the reasons why I'm completely head over heels for this gorgeous ride.  My husband has been a long time bike enthusiast and it's only as of recently that I began to understand and appreciate the construction of a great bike.  I never really got it before, but when you hop on a bike that has been crafted out of quality products and designed with comfort and style in mind, you really do see and feel the difference.

I'm so excited to spend weekends riding this beautiful bike along the water with the family, it's the epitome of a cruiser and I have every intention of cruising all summer long!
