Hey there internet bike land.
Did you miss out on this cool thing that happened in Ottawa on June 1st? Zara from Ottawa VeloVogue put on this tres-chic fashion show at Kichesippi Brewery. It featured great clothes, great bikes, great people, and a great cause.
"A big aspect of our event is fundraising for Cycle Salvation, which trains and
gives employment in the field of bike mechanics to those who are
economically disadvantaged, while at the same time diverting bikes
destined for scrap and landfill sites. Cycle Salvation is a social
enterprise operating under the umbrella of Causeway Work Centre."
Fashionable bike event for a good cause? Nightshade approved.
Zara is amazing, and you need to follow her blog if you love fashion, cycling, and looking at pretty pictures of pretty people on bikes. After almost a few years of internet friendship, I finally got to hang out with this high-octane behb at Inberbike last September while we were both models for Momentum Magazine's fashion show. Winning! I hope I get to see this lady again! Look what awesome things she makes:
