Mama’s Got a New Set of Wheels…and They Were ON SALE!!!

Now that all four of my kids are riding, (Post on how we made that happen coming soon!), it was time for Mama to get a new bike.  My bike was pushing 25 years and it was just time.

I couldn’t be happier than the moment I opened up the Canadian Tire flyer to find this BEAUTY: The Schwinn Memento, on sale for $169! (That’s $100 off the regular price of $269 🙂 ).

I wasn’t looking for something fancy but I was looking for something that I LOVE.

Practically, I wanted something that:

  • I could ride sitting upright
  • has some sort of rear rack for storage
  • has a seat wide enough for my rear rack to be comfortable
  • I could ride recreationally with the family or on my own

Style-wise, I was hoping for a vintage-look.

Price-wise, I wanted affordable.

This bike fit the bill on all counts. In fact I even find the $269 price-point reasonable, but the $100 off is just…WOW!

The offer is available at Canadian Tire only until Thursday April 25th.

I have to share that I loved the bike SO much that I wanted to buy an extra one for to DONATE to Shopping From The Heart for the SILENT AUCTION at the May 9th event!!

The problem: Canadian Tire is out of stock all over the city! I will still try to get the actual bicycle in time for May 9th, but if impossible, we will supply the winner with the rain-check & a gift card for the sale price of the bicycle.

Haven’t heard about Shopping From the Heart?  It’s Mommy’s Night Out featuring chair massages, makeup & profile pics bundled with Mother’s day shopping & more…all while the kids are sleeping!  Check out more on my post about it here.

It’s the perfect gift for a Montreal Mom – A fun bicycle that will yield hours of great exercise & fun – alone, with hubby or with the kids.

So- if you’re in the market for a bicycle for yourself, you may want to:

  • Get to Canadian Tire & get a rain-check before the end of day Thursday to benefit from the sale
  • Send the link to this post to Hubby with Subject line : Save $100 on my Mother’s Day gift by acting now!
  • Show up at Shopping from the Heart and buy a lot of raffle tickets
  • Wait until the sale is over & still buy it at $269…when they have more in stock…Still a good deal 😉

Wishing you sunshine & wheels to enjoy it 😉


 Disclosure: Canadian Tire totally should have paid me for my time to write this, but they didn’t.  I just HAD to share it with you!
