About us.

So you want to get to know us a little better? Gosh, we’re blushing! At Ride Bikes & Service we love bikes and everything about them. And as Calgarians we simply want more Calgarians riding bikes. So we want to make it easy and quick for you to get your bike serviced. Thats why we came up with the idea of  bringing our services to you in the easiest way possible.

Our mission is to get more people riding bikes. More people on bikes means healthier Calgarians, fewer cars on the road (and less traffic for the people who need their cars!), safer streets for cyclists, and an all around happier world. Thats how we plan to change the world, one rider and one bike at a time. So what do ya say Calgary? Are you in? If you need any more convincing have a look around, get to know us, stop by the shop, come for a ride. You’ll like what you see.
