Urban cycling, errand running, and riding to work or school are some of the easiest ways to develop a new cycling habit and offer their own set of challenges and rewards.

As anyone who regularly picks up groceries-by-bike will tell you – there is something truly gratifying about this simple, often mundane task, and running errands by bike can offer door-to-door parking making schlepping things around incredibly fast and easy.

Cycling to school or work also have their own set of circumstances, depending on what you need to wear at work and how far you need to go. Need to be presentable/professional looking at work?

Perhaps a bike that has full fenders and a rack. Is where you live too far away from work to cycle the whole way? Maybe a folding bike and a transit pass are in your future. Or is cheap and cheerful, simple and bulletproof more your speed? Options exist.

With those things in mind, here are a handful of bicycles available this season that we feel offer a little something for everyone and every budget.

Breezer Beltway 8+/Liberty 1R

Breezer Beltway 8+

Breezer Bicycles has been in the transportation cycling game for more then decade and long before it was considered “a thing” by the bicycle industry in North America.

Their designs offer a ride quality that is super fun and efficient. The Beltway/Liberty bicycles pictured fall under the traditional hybrid or flatbar road bike category in the sense that your position on the bike is slightly leaning forward with speed and efficiency prioritized.

Both share aluminum frames making them strong and light and both come fully decked out with practical accessories: full fenders, dynamo-powered lighting, hydraulic disc brakes, racks, fenders, puncture resistant tires, and a bell – DING!DING!

Brompton

Live in Rocky Ridge or Evergreen and are sick of your car commute to the downtown? Looking for a bike that you can toss in the trunk and head out to ride the Legacy Trail in Canmore on the weekends? A Brompton may be in your future.

Did you know that you can bring your folded bike onto Calgary Transit during rush hour? Now you do. And now a new, fast, fun way to get to work and get your daily dose of exercise can be yours.

Simply ride the short distance to your nearest C-Train station, fold up your bike in seconds, hop on the train for the leisurely trip downtown, hop off at your destination, unfold your bike and VOILA! – you’ve saved the environment, saved money, tightened up your buns with some exercise, and taken a car off the road when it matters most.

Breezer Downtown 7+

Breezer Downtown 7+

Looking for a new urban runabout? The Downtown 7+ should be on your list to test ride.

High quality 4130 cromoly frame and fork offers a light and lively ride, Shimano’s Nexus 7-speed interally geared hub offers easy shifting and a wide range, dynamo powered headlight (and built in battery taillight) keep you visible, and off course all the usual accoutrements needed for city riding in regular clothes are included: stainless steel fenders, chainguard, kickstand, bell, and a sturdy rear rack are standard.

There is simply no other brand on the market that offers so much value. One of our top sellers for many years in a row.

Raleigh Redux

Raleigh Redux

An out-of-the-box modern update on the classic commuter so many people use in Calgary. Hang out by the pathways on any day and you’ll see dozens of old, rigid mountain bikes that have been stripped down to their basics.

That is what the Redux is all about with with modern materials, disc brakes, aluminum frames, and 27.5″/650b wheels. Kind of like a big kid bmx or a mountain bike made for the city, this best-selling bike is the ultimate multi-use machine.

Potholes, curbs, tree roots, and manhole covers are suddenly just fun features to hit instead of obstacles to be avoided.

Pure Fix

The original bicycle, stripped down to it’s most basic form. Cheap and cheerful. Stylish and practical. Infinitely customizable if that’s your thing. Your personal style reflected in your ride.

“Fixies” are always popular because they are just so simple. Less stuff to fix and repair. Fast. Pure Fix’s range of fixed gear/singlespeed bikes are fantastic for the city. Not sure what a fixie is? Click on the above link for more information.
