Denise and I checked out the Toronto International Bike Show this weekend. We had a lot of fun looking at all the pretty bikes, revelling in BMX riders doing crazy flips (sorry, there were too many names for all the tricks for me to remember) and scoping out the many deals.

Sadly, the bike industry seems to still be a bit of a boys club and we encountered some chauvinism:

I guess our glasses didn’t make us look knowledgeable enough about bikes!

I love the celeste – too bad the sales guy at the Bianchi Canada booth was a jerk!

    It’s too bad you guys had to deal with some arrogant people there. I hope it didn’t ruin your day.

      I guess it was arrogance!

      When the guy told us that the products we were looking at were top tube covers, all I could do was laugh.

      But no, it didn’t ruin our day :) It was still a fun show.
