The weather's lookin' pretty nice out there. Winds are disappearing, temperatures are rising, snow is melting. People are digging out their Summer moods and Summer gear and getting ready for the warm weather.
Meaning, among other things, it's bicycle season.
It's still gonna be a while before the roads and paths are cleaned and at their best for biking, so in the meantime why not read up before you ride out? We've got plenty of books on bikes, everything from tips on taking care of your wheeled-stallion to memoirs of famous cyclists.
If you're coming to our Winnipeg store, check out our Bicycle display near the stairs leading up to the Kids section. Or there is always the Cycling section located in our Sport-books alcove.Categories: Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Displays
