WE GET ASKED EVERYDAY
DO WE SELL XC SKI GEAR?
Sorry, no. We don't sell any ski equipment. We only rent waxless cross-country skis.
DO WE RENT XC SKI'S?
You bet. We rent waxless classic cross country skis. It's a small fleet, so make sure you book ahead of time. For single day rentals you can head to our booking site. For multi-day. Give us a ring at the shop and we'll set you up.
Dear Bicycle Friends.
Yes, we are still open and we are still renting Cross Country Ski's, Snowshoes and Fatbikes.
We've been running below 15% capacity since before the lock-down restrictions.
Our shop is small and as a result we only accommodate one client/family in the shop at anytime. This helps us ensure that safe social distancing can be practiced between staff and customers and allows us to limit contact points.
If you'd prefer curbside pick-up and drop-off. Just give us a shout or send an email and we'll be sure to set you up.
For service, repair and rentals, you can view/book service spots through our online booking system. Click "book your service or repair now"
Thanks for your continued support and the opportunity for us to keep you rolling this season.
Love, Shift Happens.

ABOUT SHIFT HAPPENS BICYCLE REPAIR
I fell into the world of cycling by luck. In a little hamlet 20km outside of Lesser Slave Lake, Alberta, I was watching TV on a Saturday (after my fill of cartoons) and stumbled across the 1999 Womens world cup mountain bike race in Canmore. This was my very first exposure to mountain biking. A year later I joined the DirtGirls Mountain bike club with my Mom. There started the journey. As we fumbled our way through the rankings and events, breaking bikes and parts, we would often chat about opening our own Bike Shop.
Fast forward to today, 17yrs of riding, racing, wrenching and coaching all things bikes. Here we are, in our 6th year as a friendly neighbourhood bike shop.
Oh, and here's the link to the results archive from that 1999 world cup. I even have a signed Jersey from the legendary rider in 1st place!
