We pride ourselves in going beyond the typical repair by informing you, the customer, what can be done to make your riding experience more enjoyable, and visit the repair shop less often. This means we want to see you less often for repairs and more often for upgrades. Located on the way to Lake Huron cottage country we are the areas only full service bike shop before you get the the lake.

One in four adult Canadians and one in 10 children have clinical obesity, meaning six million Canadians living with obesity may require immediate support in managing and controlling their weight. As a leading cause of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, arthritis and cancer, the condition impacts those who have obesity, their families, employers, neighbours, health practitioners and governments.

The impact of weight bias and stigma against people with obesity is comparable to that of racial discrimination, and it’s just as common. Obesity stigma translates into significant inequities in employment, health, health care and education, often due to widespread negative stereotypes that persons with obesity are lazy, unmotivated or lacking in self‐discipline.

Canadian Obesity Network

Obesity rates in adults have doubled since the 1980s. As if that wasn’t a number scary enough, the situation among children is far worse: children obesity rates almost tripled over the last 30 years.

Here are some stats closer to home, Huron County takes the title for the highest obesity rate in Ontario in 2011-2012, with a whopping 37.1% of the adult population rated as obese. Weighing in close behind are Perth, Chatham-Kent, Lambton and Oxford — all with levels above 30%.

As we grow older how and when we cycle changes. Cycling has changed so much over the years and the wonderful thing about cycling is that – unlike any other sport – it means different things to different people, even different things to the same person at different points in their life. Cycling has gone back to being a simple way to explore, a way to keep healthy, and a way to enjoy the outdoors. Many boomers haven't been on a bike since grade school - You never really forget how to ride a bike but there is a whole lot more about cycling to consider as a boomer then as a kid.

As cycling becomes a more integrated part of our life the genre of bike that best suits this new rider explosion has changed as well. Gone are the days that you would tough out a commute on a mountain bike that you have modified to ride on the street. Today there are much better choices that turn that commute into an enjoyable riding experience.

These bikes can be used through the week as your transportation back and forth to work or to get groceries and run errands. On the weekend they work just as well for that leisurely ride along your local rail trail or bike path or even a tour of wine country.
