About Coastal Cycles
Sister and brother, Kim and Bob operate Coastal Cycles and have a passion for bikes and dealing with the public. 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. We’re there when you need help, out of the way when you don’t. A bike shop owner once referred to our shop as “ Base”. We’ll 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 we have a good handle on what you want and need.
Kim , a native Victorian, 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, who’s also from Victoria, 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. He works both in sales and service and works hard to ensure customer satisfaction.
