Thanks to Kerri Ann Day for writing this blog!

Given the current business climate and the number of small, independent Okotoks businesses that are closing their doors, I thought you might be interested in a good news story about a small bike shop that is expanding to a new bigger location within town.

Christopher Brown, a Town of Okotoks firefighter, turned his passion for bicycles into a little business in 2011 when he opened Wheel Life Cyclery in the main floor of a house on Elma Street. Chris kept busy doing bicycle maintenance and repairs for a steady stream of loyal bike enthusiasts. Over time, demand increased for the   shop  to carry good quality bikes and accessories. Chris has taken on a business partner and they are expanding  both the product offering and the size of the store by moving to a new location at #1, 115 Fisher Street. The new shop is the only full service bicycle specialty shop in the Foothills and will be carrying good quality bikes for cyclists young and old including road bikes, mountain bikes, bmx bikes, and touring bikes.

So whether you need a bike tuneup, bike accessories or just a bit of advice on where to bike  around Okotoks - drop by! 

They're celebrating their new location at 115 Fisher St with a little party on Saturday April 6. Drop in anytime from 10am to 6pm... they're going to fire up the BBQ, have some prizes, and more. More details at www.facebook.com/wheellifecyclery

Hi Stan- Love working in a small town- everyone is connected to someone! This was a good news story because it seemed that all we were hearing about was businesses closing their doors.
