At Parry Sound Bikes we don't stop just because it's the off-season. The Strava ski and fat bike challenge is back, we're renovating the Old Firehall (again), and spring planning is well underway; but we need your feedback. Read on, get in touch, or stop by the store Monday to Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
 
What rides, events or workshops do you want to see in 2022? 

We spend as much time as we can skiing and fat biking in the winter, but we also spend hours planning and preparing for the upcoming bike season. We won't be changing our Tuesday Road Ride or Thursday Mountain Bike Ride, but since variety is the spice of life we'd love to know what else you want to see, do, or ride in 2022?

Let us know by replying to this email or to [email protected]

Renovations Round Two

If you've been by Parry Sound Bikes lately, you've likely noticed the bin outside or heard the construction going on upstairs. In 2017 we did extensive renovations to the Old Firehall building, but never tackled the upstairs storage room. This winter we've been removing lath and plaster and insulating the storage room (yep, the building wasn't insulated!) as well as expanding the apartment upstairs. We hope to move bike service upstairs to create more space on the main level for bike fitting and retail.

Mountain Biking & Family Rides

 

The Georgian Nordic Outdoor Activity Centre has long been to go to place for cross country skiing in the area. In 2015 it also became a centre with great double track and single track bike trails. The double track trails offer smooth open trails that wind through the woods; great for kids and new riders. The Georgian Nordic single track makes use of the Canadian shield and offers riders a challenging rocky, rooty path up and down the rocks and ridges. Membership or day pass required to ride; memberships and day passes available online at Get Outdoors Parry Sound or in person at Parry Sound Bikes.

 

If you're looking for a family day trip or a place to camp, check out Killbear Provincial Park. Killbear Provincial Park is located 35km from Parry Sound and offers a nice bike path for family rides and great beaches.
