About Us


Our goal is simple: be the best bike shop in the country. What does this mean? Everything we do centres around creating the greatest customer experience possible with professionalism, maturity and communication. You can count on us to provide quick, relevant feedback and be honest and upfront about everything we do. We also commit to treating every customer equally and with respect.

We opened back in 1994 (when mountain bikes had 26” wheels) 50 metres south of where we currently are. We moved into our current location in 2011, and opened a second location in Ottawa's Hintonburg neighbourhood in 2019. The ownership has a combined 65 years in Ottawa's cycling community, and we've learned a lot along the way. We're always refining our product selection and our procedures to make sure we're bringing you the best products in a seamless experience.

With the rise of the e-commerce (we didn't have a website back in 1994), our website has become another location where we can meet and interact with new customers all over the country. We always aim to provide the same level of service online as we do in-store; this is why we have a dedicated team to advise, process orders, and ship out orders every day of the year. It's also the reason behind our no-minimum free shipping; we want to make sure you can get out and enjoy your cycling experience and not worry about hitting a minimum order. Our team is easily reached via email and LiveChat, so any questions can be addressed in a timely fashion.

Full Cycle’s staff and owners have always been part of the local cycling community; when we’re not at the shop, we’re on our bikes. We ride what we sell and sell what we ride, and all of our bike lines are chosen to maximize your fun on the road or trail. We sell and support Canadian brands where possible and stand behind all the bikes we sell with the Full Cycle Lifetime Service Warranty.

Whether we meet in store or online, we truly hope you are happy with your experience at Full Cycle. See you out on the trails!
