BlogTO compiles their annual (?) list of what their readers think are the best bike shops in the city.
The best bike stores in Toronto show considerable diversity in their areas of specialty. From the humble repair-focused shop to places that deal almost exclusively in race-ready road bikes, Toronto’s got it. In fact, for a city that often appears to struggle to be bike-friendly, there’s actually an embarrassment of riches when it comes to retail outlets.
If it’s possible to break these stores into categories, there are four main types of bike shops that we have in rather plentiful supply: those that cater to commuter/utility cyclists, those that focus on repairs and the used bike market, high-end specialty boutiques, and the bigger stores that pretty much do it all. There are pros and cons to shopping at any of these stores, as well as significant variance in price point. And yet, thankfully, on account of the many options out there, cyclists of all kinds can be confident that there are a selection of stores that will cater to their specific needs.
