|Jeremy selects a winner for one of our giveaways|
|Tweed and tea, a match made in England|
The inaugural edition of Toronto's Tweed Ride, which occurred this past Saturday the 15th, was a great success. Urbane Cyclist hosted a tea service in nearby Grange Park, with refreshments, treats and support provided by Merchants of Green Coffee, ING Direct, Ontario Natural Food Co-op and Sweets From the Earth. Three varieties of tea, about 300 cookies and a whole lot of tweedy cyclists made for a great afternoon. There were some stunning bicycles, including a shiny Schwinn Tandem and, of course, a pennyfarthing. There were draws for prizes from Brooks and much, much merriment. Thanks to Bikes Without Borders and everybody else who had a hand in this superb Saturday. We'll be putting some more pictures taken at the tea service (courtesy of Single Malt Studios) on our Facebook page, so check them out and tag yourself if you fancy.

|Andrea Meneghelli, Michael Firn and our own Nancy Kendrew|
We here at Urbane are proud to annonce that we have been designated by Brooks England as one of their Supreme Dealers. This honour is bestowed upon only one hundred shops worldwide and we are ecstatic to have been chosen to be among this select group which includes such renowned shops as Condor Cycles and Harris Cyclery, former home of the late, great Sheldon Brown. Brooks presented us with this accolade at Interbike, North America's largest bicycle trade show. In addition to the Supreme Dealer designation we were awarded a limited edition violet Swift saddle, the presentation of which was made by Andrea Meneghelli and Michael Firn and accepted by our own Nancy Kendrew. We are currently displaying this beautiful saddle in one of our vitrines and we eagerly await the arrival of our Supreme Dealer plaque. Many, many thanks to Brooks England, their North American distributor Highway 2, our knowledgable staff and of course our customers.
