The idea for Big Hill Cycle was born on the roads and trails in the southern Alberta area. Taking a break after a long climb or sitting on a bumper or tailgate at a trail head the idea grew for a while before we realized it had become something real.
With over 40 years combined working with bikes and cyclists in the Calgary area we have seen the sport evolve to become something much more than "just" a hobby or pastime for many. We've have had the pleasure of watching tiny tots grow up through various wheel sizes to become passionate cyclists for life. This is a big part of why are are proud to call ourselves a family bike shop and carry product to reflect those values.
Statement on COVID-19
To the Cochrane and Calgary Area Biking Community
What are we doing?
Our store has been and continues to be extensively sanitized with a virucide. We are also using hospital-grade disinfection products. All of our staff and their close contacts remain healthy and are asymptomatic. Members of our team are not permitted to come to work if they or their close contacts have any symptoms that might suggest an illness.
All of our staff have been vaccinated.
For bike servicing needs we ask that if you are feeling unwell, you hold off on having your bike picked up by our staff. We don’t want to be spreading anything unnecessarily to them and then to others.
We want to be here for those that need us. Whether it is getting your commuter back on the path so that you can get to work as an essential worker, or you're looking to get a new bike so you can go for a ride after a long day of working from home; we are part of the community and want to be here for those who need us in any way that we can.
We will continue to adapt to whatever our municipal, provincial, and federal governments ask us to do. We all have a duty to protect one another, and that needs to come first.
When riding, please be sure to continue to practice safe physical distancing with anyone you don’t live with. We have an abundance of trails, paths, and roads in and around Cochrane and Calgary to provide everyone an opportunity to get outdoors safely.
The Big Hill Cycle Team.
