Calgary Cycles has been in business 87 years and now has four locations. The newest will celebrate with grand opening events this weekend.

The new store is near the neighborhoods of Wildwood, Westgate and Rosscarrock and a five-minute bike ride from Edworthy Park. 

"We've taken the winter to shake out the bugs and we're ready for a great summer," said Derek Lee, the store's owner. "This shop is what I think a bike shop should be to a community — supporting healthy living and making our sport more accessible."

Attached to Calgary Cycle is The Hub cafe. The Hub features locally roasted Phil & Sebastian coffee, light meals and pastries. The Hub is licensed to serve beer and wine and is intended as an evening spot for the local community, commuters and shoppers.

The location also features a fitness area attached to The Hub that will be used to host community programs.

"A special thanks has to go out to our amazing design firm 54Blue," the store said in a press release this week. "Without their attention to detail and ability to take our idea of a dream bike shop and make it into a reality this never would have come to fruition. Thank you all again for the efforts and please come join us for our grand opening!"
