Check out a recent review from Bucket Tripper. Cycling in a kilt in St. Andrews by the Sea
Kurt's dad, Fuat Gumushel moved to Canada in the mid 1960's and set up shop in St. Andrews as a tailor. It wasn't long before he was making kilts for the locals and developed a reputation as a Master Kilt Maker. A few years ago, he designed a kilt for some of the local mountain bikers and Off Kilter Bike was born. He designed the kilts to be light weight, functional and of course, stylish. You can order your own kilt from him on Etsy.The link is below at the right.
The biking kilts are now the trademark of Off Kilter Biking Tours, an outfit run by Fuat's son, Kurt, who takes private clients or groups out on ROCKY MOUNTAIN BIKES and loaner kilts for easy, moderate, expert or theme rides.
So, why the kilt? Perhaps because they are located in St. Andrews-by-the-Sea, New Brunswick, with its Scottish name and heritage and that the staff at the nearby Algonquin Hotel Resort, wear kilts. There is now a local biking group called Off Kilter and everyone who rides with Gumushel is fitted for a kilt.
Lots of people are sporting the kilts, from bikers, to ultra runners, to triathletes.
How could biking in a kilt be a bad time?
TOURS: $60 for 2 hour tour. Most tours for beginners are 2 hours, which includes sightseeing and interpretation. Provided with the tour are a bike, loaner kilt, water, & helmet.
Full day tours are also available for the more adventurous. A full day tour lasts 6 hours at a cost of $200 per person, (including lunch and snacks). Full day tours begin at 10 am and return at 4 pm. and would allow the visitor to explore the areas inside and outside of the town limits.
Full day tours, like all our rides, are tailored to the rider's ability. Because there is so much to see in St. Andrews, we can take you on a ride that will be both challenging and fun. However, please know that our primary concern is safety, so don't expect to be riding any terrain you aren't comfortable with. Mountain Biking is for everyone.
Excursions: Overnights and Multidays: Exploring the communities of Charlotte County and the Fundy Isles is best done on a bike. When on Grand Manan, we stay at the Inn at Whale Cove Cottages.
