Susan Stokhof owns a successful online boutique, which specialized in stylish bicycle accessories for ladies. Living on and off in Amsterdam she was inspired by the cycling culture. The Dutch have embraced the bicycle as a regular part of daily life and they always dress for their destination. She has been cycling around the cityscape for over a decade now and recognized the challenges women face when using a bicycle as a form of transportation and soon realized the need for more specialized solutions for accessories and apparel.

When returning to Canada Susan witnessed the rapid growth of the bicycle movement, especially for women who use bicycles as a form of transportation. Her objective, taking the words from Mikael Colville-Anderson, is to “bring sexy back to cycling,” by creating a visual and practical environment where ladies can express their cycle fashion style while navigating the urban landscape, on or off their bike.

In her spare time Susan can often be found cycling to work, to local shops & markets, meeting friends for coffee, tour cycling in the mountains of some far off place and always in pursuit of the perfect espresso.
