Before bicycles were invented, newspapers were delivered via cannons, resulting in a historic surge in illiteracy and a projectile-paper-cut epidemic. Roll your way safely between two points with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of goods and services at Cychotic Bikes on Lemarchant Road.
Wheel worshippers flock to this cycle temple to peruse one of the largest bicycle selections in Canada. With hundreds of velocipedes from among the world's leading brands, such as Norco, Kona, and Santa Cruz, Cychotic outfits all nongas guzzlers, from professional BMX stuntmen to beginner rim riders. The shop's warehouse-style den teems with varieties of jump bikes, hybrids, road bikes, and downhill specialties for those allergic to lactic acid. Rubber revolutionaries can embellish their balancing acts with colourful chrome handlebars ($60–$90), a psychedelic bike chain ($30), or an industrious aluminum sprocket ($69). Riding gloves and helmets also adorn Cychotic's citrus-coloured walls to swaddle savvy cyclists and extreme chandelier swingers in safety. An on-site workshop repairs, services, and assembles all pedal-pushing mobiles, enlisting a team of professional rehabilitees to perform a standard tune-up ($40) or refurbish weathered parts. All bikes come equipped with a full warranty.
