New Bike Shop to Calgary in 2010: BikeBike Inc

Provided by Sean Carter, Crit Ninja

Hey All!

Well, the time has come for me to do something I have been dreaming and thinking about since my first days as a young teen in my local bike store back in Etobicoke ON – I am opening my own shop here in Calgary.

About a year ago, I was struck by what I like to call an “entrepreneurial seizure” and it was right then that I decided that the time had come for me to make the leap into small business ownership. There are many reasons why this “seizure” happened, not the least of which is a desire to make a positive impact in my community – but importantly, I feel that Calgary has an unmet demand for a bike store that is a little different, very accessible to non-cyclists, passionate, and professional.

BikeBike’s focus will be to provide products, services, and advice to people who are looking to make bicycles a bigger part of their daily life. We will have bikes for families, bikes for commuting, bikes for exploring and shopping – everyday bicycles. We will also be working really hard to offer Calgarians a bikeshop experience that is fresh, modern, and professional.

I am hoping to setup a blog of some sort on our store webpage so if you are looking for my rants and opinions it might be best to check the store website in the future.

If you would like to support our new store, feel free to follow our progress on Twitter or if you are the Facebook sort, you can find our BikeBike FanPage here.   Our new website is www.bikebike.ca.  The website does not have much on it for now but will be updated as we approach the opening date – sometime in February 2010 is the projected opening.

Make sure you come visit us soon!

Happy Trails!
