We headed over to the Ritz-Carlton this weekend for a bit of birthday afternoon tea. My go-to high tea place in Montreal used to be inside the Birks jewelry store downtown but unfortunately, they are closed now, so we decided to try out the Ritz.
Kyler and I got me an early birthday a little while ago and I’ve been in love ever since. I never knew bike riding could be so good! Although the whole backwards pedaling to break is something I’ll have to get used to. Luckily, there is still a front brake, something I knew I wanted in a bike. That’s one of the things that made me pick this one after searching and searching online. I wanted a cruiser but I didn’t want it to be too heavy and I wanted it to have more than one gear plus at least one “real” brake.
That’s when we found this one from local Griffintown bike shop Allo Velo! It’s slightly lighter than a typical cruiser bike, comes in a small size and they threw in all the necessary accessories. It was pretty much a done deal. It’s so much lighter and smoother than a Bixi, which is what I’ve been using for the past few years. It’s like floating on a cloud in comparison! I just love it!
