A Cyclist's Paradise!

roads, trails, & mountain biking in and around Calgary

Whether mountain or road, Greenwich is located in the key location for biking access in and around Calgary.  Winsport across the street features Calgary’s only lift-assisted mountain bike terrain with adrenaline pumping downhill and even cross country trails leading into Edworthy park and the infinite river valley system.  Road-wise, popular rides span out to Bragg Creek and beyond, Cochrane or the national parks for the uber-committed types.

Biking resource wise, one of Canada’s largest bicycle retailers is a 10 minute bike ride from Greenwich.  Bow Cycle Opened in 1957 by Jim and Mary Sibthorpe, Bow Cycle was first established as a small bicycle and sporting goods store in beautiful downtown Bowness, Alberta (at that time, Calgary had not yet grown to engulf the smaller outlying towns and communities).   Since then family and eventually an ownership group comprised largely of employee owners have continued to run the business servicing Calgary’s riding needs.

While a lot has changed at Bow Cycle, a lot has stayed the same. During a radio ad in the early 1960s, Jim Sr. coined the phrase, “Bow Cycle, this is where the fun begins.” From that day forward, those words have served as the blueprint for how the business is ran. Bow Cycle and the riding options around Greenwich make for a perfect cycle oriented community.

Lock Up Your Bike

tips from Bike Calgary in partnership with the City of Calgary

While bike theft has always been an issue, the last couple of years have certainly seen an increase in bike theft. Bow Cycle would like to remind you to protect your bike. Whether you have a beat-up commuter that takes you to the office, or a custom-built machine that gets cleaned more than your car, lock it up when it is out!

Our recommendations

  • Choose the correct lock – Think about where you are locking it up and for how long. We suggest U-Lock for anything over a couple of minutes.
  • Always lock your bike – So much bike theft is a crime of convenience. Take those extra moments to lock it up and do it correctly. Lock it to something solid and not a pole it can be lifted over.
  • Lock your bike in a well-lit, busy area – this will make the less brazen think again.
  • Make sure you lock your bike to something that cannot be cut.
  • Lock according to value. That means frame first, then back wheel, and finally front wheel. Replace skewers with lockable axles and swap QR seat binders for allen key ones.
  • Make sure the lock fits snugly! The less room inside of the u-lock or chain, the more difficult it will be for thieves to use their tools.
  • Position your lock off the ground with the keyhole facing down. Make it difficult!
  • Make your bike unique. Replace one piece with something easily identifiable and difficult to remove. This makes identifying your bike easier.

Also, register your bike!
