Holiday Hours, Holiday Breaks, and So Forth...

With Christmas less than two weeks away, I figured I should probably toss up a quick post for anyone who didn't just head directly to the "contact" section to see what our Holiday Hours were going to be this year.  Up until Christmas day, the shop hours will look like this:

Tuesday thru Saturday: 10am-5pm.

Saturday December 24th (aka: Christmas Eve/last minute shopping day): 10am-12noon

Yup, that's right, we'll be open on the 24th!  Not for the full day mind you, but we'll be here 'till 12noon helping everyone out with those last minute gifts (I know I'd be pretty stoked to find a fatbike under my tree!).  After noon though.......well, we're gonna close the doors for a while, spend some time with our families and friends, and maybe even try to squeeze in a few epic snow rides.  Yup that's right, Wheel Life Cyclery will be closed for a full week after Christmas, and will be reopening on Tuesday January 3rd.

Sunday December 25th thru Monday January 2nd: CLOSED

Happy Holidays to everyone from the WLC crew!

12 Days of Chrismas (or seasonal holiday of your choice) Sale

Wheel Life Cyclery will be hosting a Holiday Sale for the 12 days that we are open before Christmas.

The sale will start at 10am on Friday December 9th, and the final day will be Saturday December 24th (we will be open 10am-3pm on Christmas Eve).

Each of the 12 days will have a unique sale/special, revealed on our facebook event page the evening before, and offered only for that one day.

Change is in the air...

Uh oh! 

Looks like "someone" figured out how to get control of the internets and is gonna be taking it upon themselves to put a bit of work into WLC's quaint little website.  Are we talking huge site do-over?  No.....our focus is on bikes, not on blingy interweb graphics.  BUT.......we realize that some updates would be good for the shop, and great for the customers, and so here we go..... baby steps......

More to come...

Simcoe Bicycles

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!
