Here are 7 of the best places to fix your bike in Calgary

May 12 2021, 11:59 am

Cycling season is finally in full swing in Calgary (unless you’re one of those die-hards who rides year-round), and your two-wheeled ride may need a tune-up.

YYC is home to over 1,000 kilometres of city-maintained pathways. With the last of the winter weather finally behind us, now is the perfect time to take full advantage of the trails and get some fresh air and exercise. Of course, it won’t be as much fun if your bike isn’t in tip-top shape.

Whether your tires need pumping up, brakes need adjusting, or your gears need to be cleaned and lubed, there are spots across the city that are happy to help you with all your bike-related needs.

Here’s where you can take your bike for a fix in Calgary.
