Once upon a time…young women sat upright on their traditional Dutch bikes as they rode to work on the friendly, organized bike paths of Amsterdam, showing us how to live without cars…

Meanwhile, seemingly crazed young men launched their reinforced bikes of off elevated trails, deep in the rugged forests of Vancouver’s North Shore, showing us how much fun you can have on a bike…

Take a little bit of Amsterdam and add some North Shore: URBANA bikes.
