Since 1970, Bay Cycle and Sports has been spiffing up spokes and sharpening blades via the hands of an experienced staff. The 8,000-square-foot showroom contains a massive selection of bikes, hockey sticks, and bikes dressed like hockey sticks. Handlebars gleam once donned in useful accessories, such as a Sigma computer to track speed and mileage (starting at $22.99), and the release of bikes from garage dungeons calls for celebratory services, such as a minor tune-up by trained mechanics ($44.99). Bring ice slicers to their spikiest with 10 hockey skate sharpenings ($40), or check out the new Louis Garneau clothing showroom to augment a sluggish wardrobe’s whiny attitude.
The staff at GP Bikes leads patrons through a shop stocked with more than 50,000 replacement parts, modifications, and apparel for ATVs, street and off-road cycles, snowmobiles, and watercraft. Customers can shield faces from wind and overly friendly mothers-in-law with a clear Arrow double-lens visor ($29.03). Scooters gain support and positive reinforcement with a Teknix side stand ($28.99), and street-cycle engines earn a breathing boost from BMC-make air filters ($44.95). GP Bikes' clothing and accessory lines beckon women to don Eva waterproof summer boots ($52.79) or men to swaddle selves with a Fox vented racing jersey ($49.95), and more casual wear enables legs to contain road-god status in Thor husky jeans ($66.84).

Since 1994, the bike enthusiasts at Cyclepath have delivered prompt service and knowledgeable advice alongside an extensive inventory of bicycles and parts from top industry brands. Patrons can peruse the racks of bikes by Norco and Devinci or check out the lineup of parts and accessories by Shimano, Axiom, and Topeak. Cyclists in need of service and repairs can employ the expertise of the in-house mechanics. These cycling savants provide owners with a free estimate and a full run-down of the work that’s needed, ensuring that customers can stay within their budget or realize that it might be time to trade in for a penny-farthing, which costs a penny.
Cyclemotive houses an expansive stock of bicycles from brands such as Giant, Argon 18, Scott, Felt, and Wilier, as well as gear and accessories. Its racks of products include helmets from Bern and Louis Garneau, gloves from POC, and saddles from Brooks, all awaiting the chance to feel the wind rush over them as their owners' cycles speed down city streets or over rocky trails. Transports in need of mechanical TLC find solace in the expert hands of an on-staff technician, who gladly lubricates moving parts and tightens loose bolts to prevent riders from accidentally unicycling.
