A new brand of bicycles has just rolled into Wheel Life Cyclery!
Simcoe bicycles draw inspiration from a forgotten era of North American cycling. They are a product of both experience and necessity, built for the cold of the northeast and the boardwalks of the southwest. A story lies behind every angle, creating an upright ride and agile feel - bridging modern geometry with classic form.
Stop by the shop and check out some of these classics!
Wheel Life Cyclery is pretty excited to announce that cyclocross is coming to Okotoks September 6th, 2014.
2014 will see the addition of three new cyclocross events as a part of another jam packed season. The "Natural CX High" organized by Natural High Cycling Club promises to kick off the Alberta Cup cyclocross season in style with a brand new course proposed in the heart of Okotoks, AB.
Our first shipment of Borealis Bikes is en route. Light as a feather and fat as a feminist issue! Stop by next week and check out these big boys.
The thing about being self-employed business owners is that there aren't many chances for downtime. Since the post-Christmas season isn't a busy one at the bike shop, we're taking some much needed time off to spend time with our families (and to ski and to ride our bikes). Wheel Life Cyclery will be closed until January 8th. Happy New Year!
In case you haven’t heard, Fat-Bikes are currently, what you might call, Mui Caliente! And with all this snow it will make for perfect Fat-Bike weather! Give us a shout if you are interested in a group Fat-Bike ride this saturday!
So pumped to be among the 'oddballs and weirdos' that Kona attracts, as described in this interesting article. Wheel Life Cyclery received 17 new 2014 Kona bicycles this week. Give us a few days to build them up and then come take a look see.
All in-stock 2013 bikes as well as parts and accessories are now on sale at Wheel Life Cyclery!!
The backcountry is the imagination unleashed and you get out what you put in. There are real boundaries and limitations though; avalanches, exposure to the elements, conditions and fatigue all challenge one to grow inknowledge, patience and fitness. Putting in the perspiration and inspiration leads to ELEVATION.
Kick off the 2013/14 ski season right with the latest Powderwhore production Elevation.
Tickets $15 in advance $20 at the door.
Includes movie, choice chow and recreational bevies.
BYOC/B (bring your chair/beanbag)

Wheel Life Cyclery is exicted to be part of this year's Get Bright campaign!
Days are getting shorter. If you're out in the evenings on your bicycle, you're already riding in the dark. And in a few weeks, you might even be riding in the dark on your way to and from work or school.
Having a white front light and a red rear light is not only required by law if you ride at night, it is also the single most effective piece of safety equipment you can buy. It makes you more visible, and hence less likely to be in a collision. A full quarter of all collisions happens at night!
Lights are a must not only if you ride on city streets, but also on pathways. If others can't see you, they can't make way for you, and they might step or steer into your way. And a pothole or tree root bump is more easily avoided if you can see it.
So, get a good set of lights. They're not expensive, and they may literally save your life.
Through September 2013, Wheel Life would like to extend a 15% discount on all regularly priced bike lights in stock. Stop by the shop and check out our selection of KNOG and LIGHTS & MOTION lights to brighten the dark winter months.

Wheel Life Cyclery is happy to announce that we are now carrying Linus Bikes.
Inspired by French bicycle design of the 50s and 60s Linus has created a bicycle that preserves the simple elegance and pure form of that golden era, but has all the benefits of modern comfort and reliability. LINUS is the utilitarian city bike… simple and reliable, but with a personality and style that makes you feel like you’re in an old French movie… you’re floating a little from the wine you drank at lunch… maybe instead of going back to the office you’ll take a nap under a tree, go for a swim in the sea or drop by your lover’s house…
