One of the best ways to revel in the warmer weather is by getting on a bike. Cycling is great exercise, terrific for people-watching — and a far more enjoyable way to travel to work than sitting in traffic.
Whether you’re new to cycling or just need to spruce up your old ride, here’s some of the best cycling gear to get peddling.
The investment: Only your favourite bike ever
The price point may seem steep, but people who’ve bought a Simcoe don’t look back — it’s that smooth a ride, that safe, that durable. Simcoe is a Canadian-founded company that’s designed a commuter bicycle with northern climes in mind: chip-resistant coating, rust-resistant fenders, tires built to defy potholes and streetcar tracks. Best of all, the bike manages to make you feel sturdy on the road and at the same time nimble — a duality almost as impossible as a cinnamon bun that’s good for you. All that, and it’s pretty darn good-looking, too.
