In Revelstoke Cycle Style, the Revelstoke Mountaineer profiles commuter cyclist to highlight the style and philosophy behind the ride. In the coming weeks, we’re going to be doing a photo series focusing on commuter cycling.

This early preview is to promote the North Columbia Environmental Society’s Bike Swap this Sunday, May 3 from 11–12:30 at the Revelstoke Forum. Buy, swap and sell bike gear. For more info on trading or selling at the swap see the Revelstoke Mountaineer events calendar.

Cyclist: Annie Heale

The bike: Annie traded in for it at Eco-Cents Warehouse, and thinks it cost about $40. “I like how you have to tune in the gears,” she said. “It feels like and old-school radio.” She was a bit embarrassed about the rusty chain and broken cable – no spring tune-up yet.

Riding style: “Slow and steady.”

A good reason to commute by bike: “Anything that doesn’t consume fuel,” is a good way to go, Annie said. Longboard, walk, skateboard, whatever, is better than burning fuel and money.
