Cycle Solutions has been around a while now. We like hanging around the store and shooting it with the customers. We also like riding. So, of course, we were on the trail one day when someone goes and blows out their suspension fork on a drop. Ride comes to an end...

At the trailhead, sitting around and wiping mud out of our ears, someone pulls a laptop out of the back of a car, and starts checking online for a new fork. This gets us to thinking, if everyone already has a laptop and the internet is everywhere, wouldn’t it be nice to get that replacement fork delivered to the trail, and then you just keep riding?!

We’re not there yet, but that’s what we’re aiming for. In the meantime, enjoy the convenience of shopping from Cycle Solutions wherever you thought to bring a computer. 

Don't just visit us on-line. We also have two full service brick and mortar locations.

BicyclesPlus has been serving the Durham Region since 1990. Providing excellent value for your dollar and quality service.

Visit Cycle Life just south of the 401 on Brock on the West Side. We can help you with all of your cycling needs whether you're a serious rider preparing for a race, riding for leisure or fitness, or getting a bike for your child.

We sell mountain, road, cross, hybrid, comfort, bmx and kids bikes and have a full service repair shop."

Cycling training and strength training COMBINED to make you a better athlete.

 

We are Steve Neal and Andrew Randell: friends and like-minded coaches who joined forces to open The Cycling Gym, a community for people to work out, have fun and train properly to meet their athletic goals, whatever those goals may be. We deeply love the sport of cycling and genuinely enjoy watching people improve and perform to the best of their abilities.

Cycling Training

“It’s best to keep things simple. People can really improve without getting too fancy.”
Steve Neal
 
Our training is suitable for anyone—regular active people and elite athletes alike. With consistent training, we can help you get better:
  • Racers
  • Club Riders
  • Triathletes

 

We use common tools for training: 
  • Your bike (road, MTB, tri-bike, cyclocross)
  • Computrainers
  • PerfPro (power-based training software)
  • Heart Rate Monitoring
  • Muscle Oxygen Saturation (Moxy) Sensors

 

The difference is, we know how to use these tools to create the best training recipe for each individual.
 
Everyone’s body is different. Our goal is for our members to train appropriately, applying the correct intensity to meet their athletic goals. We pay close personal attention to members while they are riding, ask how they feel throughout each workout and make adjustments to their program in the moment. Every month, we do new MAP (Maximum Aerobic Power) tests to measure progress and make adjustments so that our athletes can continue to improve.

 

“This is very much NOT a case of “I’m a champion: this is what I did; now you do it too.” We do not have people come in and smash it for an hour, several days a week. Sure, you can get fit quickly that way, but after six weeks you’re fried. As well as being too generic, the go-hard training plans that everyone follows are not sustainable for getting through a season without experiencing burnout or injury, for your body to stay healthy or to enjoy cycling over several years.” - Andrew Randell

 

 

Strength Training

 

No other indoor cycling training facility has this element: take advantage of our strength training program and take your fitness to a new level.

 

After years of experience racing and coaching, we strongly believe that we need to do more than just ride our bikes to reach our top athletic performance and maintain our overall health. Sports (such as cycling) and life conditions (such as sitting hunched at a desk working on a computer) cause all sorts of imbalances. We know that strength training—ideally for one hour, two to three times per week—will go a long way to fix these problems. We want you to be strong for your sport and for everything else you have to do in life.

 

“I totally wrecked my body from years of just riding. I want to prevent anyone I train from ending up in the same boat as me, and the way to do this is through strength training.” - Andrew Randell

 

“Throughout the years as a coach for cyclists, lacrosse and hockey players, I have seen so many people become much fitter and stronger than they ever thought they could be: they try strength training and like it, feel much healthier overall and they’re better in their sport with the results to prove it.” - Steve Neal

 

In small classes, we combine stretching and mobility exercises with traditional strength training such as the deadlift, the squat, strict press and horizontal push and pull. We modify and scale exercises to fit each member's individual strength and focus on proper form for everyone to execute the exercises safely. It is always a fun challenge: we promise that you’ll be working so hard there won’t be any time to be “bored with weights.”

A word from Tom: Cycling is my passion. I have dedicated my life to cycling, first as a competitive road rider on the Polish National Team racing throughout Europe, and after retiring from competitive cycling, as a bicycle retailer. I opened BikeSports Newmarket in 1998, followed by BikeSports Richmond Hill in 2004. I think cycling is the perfect sport for every person at every age and every level of fitness. There is such an incredible variety in what’s available in bicycles these days, from road and mountain bikes to comfort and hybrid bikes, as well as everything in between. There truly is a bike for every rider. My goal is to meet the cycling needs of each and every one of my customers. I look forward to meeting you and seeing you out there on the roads and trails. Happy riding! Tom Zielinski, Owner, BikeSports

KHS has been producing high quality bicycles for cyclists of all backgrounds in all parts of the world since 1974. From our first day in business KHS has always delivered a unique blend of styling, performance and excellent consumer value. Our product philosophy is simple, build for function and value. Our aim is not to be the largest brand on the planet, on the contrary, we feel that being smaller gives us the flexibility to build bikes for the individual of our consumers. Bicycle build kit options, smaller market bicycles (tandems, folding bikes, single speeds, etc.) and custom model runs are just a few examples of what we can offer that the "big" brands can not. The combination of design philosophy and manufacturing experience helps provide the performance, reliability and enjoyment you'll have every time you get on a KHS Bicycle. KHS believes in respect and dedication to what we refer to as the "Iron Triangle," represented by our customers, suppliers and us, the manufacturers. By fostering strong relationships and understanding the needs of our customers KHS has built one of the strongest, most respected bicycle companies in the world.
 

What started as one event in 1994 has burgeoned into one of mountain biking’s largest and most successful event promotions companies. Think B.C. is the epicenter of cycling in Canada? Guess again. With a large variety of accessible, moderately difficult trails, the rolling terrain of Southern Ontario is just the ticket for riders of all ability levels to enjoy the fun and exhilaration of winding through a row of pines or a flowing hardwood trail. Chico Racing has concentrated on the Ontario market, and because of that have been able to create a unique relationship with the sport in our area. The result? A legacy of many trail systems that support some of the biggest events in the world, a knowledge of all facets of the sport, and an inter-personal relationship with our riders that sets us apart from marketing companies that simply target Mountain Biking. So with 14 years of promotional experience, a passion for the sport, and our continued reputation for providing riders with the best possible window into our sport, make Chico Racing events your first, and last stop for participating in our wonderful sport.

The Second Wedge Brewing Co. is dedicated to brewing beer that brings as much joy to others as the trails of Uxbridge bring to us. We get our name from the rolling hills of the Oak Ridges Moraine, which formed in four wedges from west to east. 

We felt it was time to bring our two loves together and bring the best of beer to Uxbridge, while putting our town on the craft beer map. Opening in late fall 2015, we're a bike-friendly, walkable neighbourhood brewery in downtown Uxbridge — after your ride, come in and try what's fresh and on tap, grab some bottles or fill a growler to go. Cheers!
