CBN To Focus on TVBS and Rides in 2015

CBN would like to inform you of, effective immediately, the closing of our 761 Queen St. W. location. With the impending renovation of our former space, CBN has decided to focus on our events and rides in the short term to better fulfill our mission to promote cycling in the community.

We will still be putting on and sponsoring a variety of rides and events including the Toronto Vintage Bicycle Show, Bike tours with Heritage Toronto and others.

We would like to thank all of our members, patrons and the community for their support throughout our almost 20 years at this location and we look forward to many more years serving the community. “It’s definitely the end of an era,” says CBN Daily Duty Manager, Jerry Lee Miller.

For the time being CBN will be maintaining an office at 761 Queen St. W.

All inquiries should be emailed to

For members looking for repairs and DIY facilities we would direct you temporarily to a number of other not-for-profit bike shops (Bike Chain, Bike Sauce, Bike Pirates) or other bicycle shops in the neighbourhood.

We will be launching further activities as the season progresses so please continue to check our website for details.

Thank you for all of your support.
