For those of us not brave enough to ride all year around, bike season is almost here. It’s been a long, cold, hard winter and assuredly there are plenty of people across the prairies just itching to get their bikes out and hit the roads and trails. But first off, a little spring maintenance might be in order. The folks at Natural Cycle in Winnipeg seem to have a passion for bikes that has to be admired. They understand what it is to be a bike owner, rider and lover. And they know how to keep bikes running. Now if they can just help me find the two bikes I have had stolen in the past three years in Winnipeg, I’ll be a happy man.
