Via Ciclante was featured in a piece on the economy on the March 25 airing of CBC's The National.
The piece starts at about 15:20.
Between the day that the piece was filmed (mar. 24) and the night it aired (mar. 25) I personally cashed out four bikes, processed countless repairs and even sold a $400 cycling jacket. I agree that many people are scared about the economy, but to a cyclist the local bike shop is still a very important part of their lifestyle and their health.
