NAME: Paigelina Galette
OCCUPATION: Retail Clerk and Sex Educator at Venus Envy Ottawa
WHERE YOU HEADING: A friend’s goodbye party!
WHAT ARE YOU RIDING: An ugly duckling from Recycles.. but she gets me places and I love her very much!
WHY DO YOU RIDE: Best way to get around town! It’s faster, easier and definitely more reliable than the bus. You can also go to cool places you wouldn’t be able to by car.
IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT BIKING IN OTTAWA WHAT WOULD IT BE: The potholes! There are so many and they’re everywhere. It’s brutal. I’d also change the bike paths: this city needs better ones that go all over the city, and ideally that lead to microbreweries (like the Mill St. Brewpub!).
WHAT ARE YOU WEARING:
- Dress: Forever 21
- Shoes: Aldo
- Scarf: Grandma’s closet
- Accessories: Wunderkammer and Forever 21
FAVOURITE SPOTS TO BIKE: The Arboretum and the bike path along Rockliffe Parkway.

FAVOURITE LOCAL COFFEE SHOP: Bridgehead and I deal Coffee
