CTV News: Lonny Balbi – Bike to Work Day Founder & Two Wheel Gear Advocate
Recently I connected with Lonny Balbi, founder and organizer of Calgary Bike To Work Day happening Friday, May 1, 2015. Lonny is a longtime bike commuter and truly outstanding guy. This year, Lonny is donating $1 for every bike that shows up at the event’s headquarters in Eau Claire Market to the Nathan O’Brien Children’s foundation. With an average of 4,000-5,000 commuters stopping by for breakfast (catered by Lonny’s law practice), Lonny is in for making a pretty substantial donation from his own pocket.
Lonny took a real shining to our newest suit pannier and we couldn’t have been more excited to collaborate. This year Two Wheel Gear is honoured to sponsor Calgary Bike to Work Day and donate our Classic 2.0 Garment Panniers as event prizing. We set out to solve a problem for daily bike commuters riding to work. Lonny is helping us spread that word. Watch the below videos from Global Calgary and CTV Calgary Morning News as Lonny’s charm is put into action talking about his passion for Bike to Work Day and his killer suit and tie tucked neatly in his Classic 2.0 Garment Pannier.
