ALL 2013 Bikes On Sale!
Sister and brother Kim and Bob operate Coastal Cycles, and have a passion for bikes and anybody that rides them. When you walk into the shop you’ll feel welcome and comfortable. You won’t find any pressured sales people here. Just knowing and helpful staff. They’re there when you need help, out of the way when you don’t. A bike shop owner once referred to the shop as “ Base”. They take that as a compliment. Here you’ll find all you need in parts and accessories, in recognized brand names and some brands you won’t find in other shops. With years of experience in the bicycle industry they have a good handle on what you want and need.
Kim , from Victoria, has many years of business experience in large retail environments. She knows exactly how to keep a business in order and moving forward. With a keen eye for detail and fair business practices, she ensures a smooth operation.
Bob spent a few decades in Vancouver learning the bicycle business at Cambie Cycles, where they specialized in recumbent bikes and trikes. They even built their own Long Wheel Base model called the Recumboni. In 2005, Bob returned to Victoria and worked with a number of local shops before taking over Coastal Cycles. His years of experience allows him to talk about all types of riding.
In recent years, electric bikes and assist kits have taken off. Coastal Cycles is currently the largest seller of BionX systems on Vancouver Island. If you have any interest in this new technology, these are the people to talk to.
