We’re more than your average bike store
The Cycle Therapy Story
Cycle Therapy Bikes on Trunk Road in Duncan, BC is owned by David and Sandra Beggs. The Cycle Therapy team is lead by Anthony Windsor who is knowledgable about pretty much every product we carry in the store. Anthony is also an expert mechanic who takes the time to get your bike perfectly tuned up. In fact all of the staff at Cycle Therapy love riding bikes, working on bikes, talking about bikes, and sometimes you'll spot them just gazing at bicycles.
David and Sandra moved to the Cowichan Valley from Haida Gwaii, where they enjoyed working and riding with the many cyclists there. Their move to the beautiful Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island was deliberate and enthusiastically planned. They were happy to move to a community that already had so many keen cyclists, on both road bikes and mountain bikes. And they were also super happy to be living closer to family.
Sandra and David opened a cycling store because bikes are their passion and they believe in the beneficial effects of bicycles on our environment and our lives. They see more and more people each year riding their bikes for fitness, for recreation and for commuting and are confident that the trend will continue.
At Cycle Therapy you'll find a friendly and accommodating staff trained to put your needs above all else. Our goal is to help to get you riding the right bike for you safely, comfortably and injury free! For the recreational rider that translates as fun and comfortable and for the serious racer it translates as efficient and fast. We'll listen to you and do our best to make sure we send you out the door with a smile on your face.
We also have a huge parking lot behind the store so you can easily bring your bicycle into the shop for repair...or you can safely try out your a selection of bikes. With Trek, Rocky Mountain, BMC, Everti and Brodie bicycles you have a choice of the very best made bicycles in the world from companies who proudly stand behind their product.
Thank you to our loyal customers, for your continued business in 2013 and thank you as well to all our new customers for coming in and getting to know us. It's the end of our third year in the Cowichan Valley and we continue to be amazed by the enthusiasm for cycling in this community. 2014 will mark new and exciting changes for us as we move to our new and improved location on Duncan Avenue right beside the Duncan Garage sometime in February. David and Sandra and our fantastic staff: Matt, Anthony, Julie, Paul, and Sean wish you a Happy and Peaceful Holiday and a terrific 2014, filled with lots of cycling adventures.
