The City Cyclery is opening a new 5,000 square-foot store in Walkerville following what they say was an “explosive response” to the shop’s original 500 square-foot location.

The urban bicycle shop, which opened its doors in February in an alley off of Wyandotte and Chilver, will be hosting an opening gala at their new location on Lincoln Road at Wyandotte Street on Friday from 6pm to 9pm.

“The response has been beyond our wildest expectations,” said Ron Droulard, who co-owns the full-service shop specializing in commuter bicycles with Stephen Hargreaves and Chris Holt.

The new larger location allows the Cyclery to feature new brands such as Brooklyn Bicycles, clothing designed for cyclists from Levi’s Commuter series, Canadian handmade bags by YNOT Cycle, books, and an expanded selection of the shop’s bestselling Bobbin Bicycles and Brooks saddles both from the UK.

In addition, the location, a renovated 1924 factory with much of the original ephemera preserved, will be the home to an on-site café come spring; which in the spirit of the shops celebration of local (featuring many Detroit and Windsor made items) will serve locally roasted coffee drinks and Walkerville Brewery ales.
