Get your bike going!
For many people biking here in Vancouver is a year round thing. Rain, snow,
meteor showers….you name it, we’ll bike in it. Then there are the rest of the
population who tend to be more fair weather bikers. And since it is now Spring
and the weather is sunning-up, most of us are dusting off our bikes and many
of those bikes either need replacing or a good tune up. So, here is a list of where
to get your bike(s) fixed and or repaired and also a list of where you may need to
go to buy a new or used bike.
