Twice a year (spring & fall) there is a bike show in Toronto where all the shops and clubs from across the Golden Horseshoe (the area withing approx 2 hours drive of the city) are all in one big arena for a weekend sale extravaganza. This weekend is the spring bike show which is always the big one as everyone gets ready to get outside again for the summer. Great deals can be found, especially in the first few hours of the show. My boyfriend and I lined up to get in early and while neither of us was looking for anything specific, we each came out with loads of great new gear, spd shoes, jerseys, a camel back, jackets, a bag, arm warmers, padded shorts, a riding skirt, mostly all at 50% off the store prices. My favourite sight of the show was right inside the main entrance, at the Wike booth which specializes in bike trailers… a trailer hitch for your kayak! how good is that! ahh Canada, you’ve done it again.
There’s loads of bikes and wheels sets and everything you can think of there, so whatever you’re after, you can get set for a new season. There’s also a bmx jam and flatland competition as well if you want to just sit back and take a break from the shopping.
