      Vancouver B.C. - Acclaimed bike tour company Cycle City Vancouver has announced the opening of Vancouver's premiere dedicated bike retail and servicing shop. Opening next week, Cycle City Bike Shop will support the city’s growing number of cyclist commuters and leisure bikers with an expansive rental and retail fleet, extended hours, urban-friendly accessories and expert servicing.

      Vancouver commuters bike or walk to work more than residents of any other major Canadian city with nearly 10 percent opting to hit the road on two wheels. Cycle City aims to support these commuters, and encourage others to join in. Situated along Hornby Street – a central artery in downtown Vancouver boasting one of the city’s busiest bike  lanes – the brand-new 4,000-square-foot retail and servicing space is the first of its kind to open in central downtown in over 30 years. Cycle City Bike Shop will offer customers a range of bike-related goodies, including practical commuter bikes, stylish city bikes, and adventure bikes perfect for mountainous trails; necessary accessories like helmets, locks and lights; and nice-to-have enhancements like bike racks, bags and fenders. Seasoned mechanics will offer all-day servicing, inviting cyclists to drop off bikes in need of a tuneup en route to work and retrieve them on the way home. For bikes requiring extended repair time, the shop will provide loaners so customers can carry on with their travels. 

      Cycle City Bike Shop’s staff are highly knowledgeable and extensively trained bike experts, prioritizing attentive and approachable service to ensure every visitor’s bike needs are fulfilled. Customers who want to try before they buy can rent the bike they have their eye on and, if they like what they ride, staff will apply the rental fee to the cost of purchase. The shop also boasts a custom-built bike shower station where customers can have their bikes washed and detailed; both services are included in the Deluxe Tune-up service. Visitors to the city wishing to bring a bike home, or residents who frequently travel with their bikes, will appreciate the shop’s building and boxing service, which ensures bikes are travel-ready.

      A true business success story, owner Josh Bloomfield founded Cycle City Tours in 2010 and since then has steadily grown his business from touring company to go-to bike expert catering to locals and visitors alike. Now, Cycle City Vancouver offers five popular city tours, as well as private customized excursions, and rentals at the existing store on Burrard Street. The new Hornby Street shop carries more than 300 bike rentals, including the biggest e-bike fleet in the city. “I am so proud of what our team has accomplished with Cycle City Vancouver, and excited to open a dedicated shop providing Vancouverites with the same unparalleled and customer-centric service enjoyed by visitors joining our bike tours,” said Josh Bloomfield, owner. “Cycle City Bike Shop will offer personalized, friendly and convenient service by our seasoned team, not only for commuters, but for anyone needing support with their bicycles. We are truly the go-to shop for all things biking in Vancouver.”

      Cycle City Bike Shop opens on May 24. During the busy summer season, the shop will be open between 8am and 9pm, the longest hours of any bike store in the city. For a

      limited time, guests who visit the new store will receive a 20 percent discount on services, including complimentary detailing and a “bike shower”. For more information about Cycle City Bike Shop, visit
