How would you like to live and work (on bikes) in B.C.'s Interior? How would you like to live and work (on bikes) in B.C.'s Interior?
At Cyclepath Kelowna we started the 2006 season by doubling in size to over 6000 square feet and in the process became the premier shop between Vancouver and Calgary. We underestimated how much growth we would have over the year and our already hardworking staff were pushed to the limit. So this year we've started the search for additions to our quality team earlier.

Stolen HUKK's-Be on the look out for two custom builds. Stolen HUKK's-Be on the look out for two custom builds.
Both of our blue HUKKS were stolen off the third floor balcony of our North Vancouver BC apartment on the morning of Sunday November 26th, 2006 at approximately 6:00 am while we were fast asleep. There were tracks left in the snow of our bikes tires and the evil thieves’ foot prints. This was obviously a premeditated plan and was done efficiently and effectively. These bikes are very limited and unique and easily noticeable. They will be sorely missed by my wife and I and it will be next to impossible to really replace these limited bikes.

Lets set the scene first. 120 degree heat, zero shade and all you have to drink is near boiling hot Citrus Fruit Cytomax. Not a good picture right? Now how long would you put up with that just to ride a bicycle? Apparently not as long as me. I spent one and a half hours working on my sunstroke just to pedal a bicycle down a hill, does that sound desperate? Yes, but thats something I need to work on down the road.

Voting has opened for the 2006 BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award

The 2006 BBC Sports Personality of the Year award may have prompted critical opinions that British sporting success stories have been a bit thin on the ground this year. This is definitely not the case in mountain biking where Britain's Tracy Moseley and Steve Peat took the overall UCI Downhill Mountain Bike World Cup Champion titles. In Steve's case, it's the third time he's won this impressive title(02,04 & 06).
