What’s go­ing to be hot this spring? New lines/trends etc. The Lower Don Trail re­opened af­ter sev­eral years of in­prove­ments. The multi-use path con­nects to down­town, the beach and Lake On­tario. Do you have any celebrity cus­tomers? Over the years we’ve had a few Pro­vin­cial Pre­miers shop with us.

What has been your proud­est mo­ment in busi­ness? A while ago we had a cus­tomer drop off her bike for a tune up. She had just been de­clared can­cer free af­ter two years of treat­ment and the first thing she wanted to do was to go on a bike ride. Great­est ad­vice you ever re­ceived? When deal­ing with cus­tomers you’re build­ing a re­la­tion­ship, not just mak­ing a sale.

What makes your busi­ness unique? We put the Lo­cal in Lo­cal Bike Shop. We live in the neigh­bour­hood and share the same paths, trails, and roads that our cus­tomers and neigh­bours use. Who is your in­spi­ra­tion/role model? I have a pretty awe­some wife.

De­scribe your team: We have a great mix of ex­pe­ri­ence and youth. We’re al­ways cu­ri­ous and al­ways will­ing to learn from our cus­tomers’ ex­pe­ri­ences and needs.
