ABOUT CYCLEPATH KELOWNA

Cyclepath Kelowna has been locally-owned and operated since it opened in 1995. The store has undergone a number of transformations over the years but our emphasis on friendly customer service of the highest quality has stayed the same. 

Today, we’re a full-service specialty bike store that operates year-round. 

We provide Kelowna and the surrounding region with the bicycles, accessories, gear and advice needed to keep you in the amazing Okanagan outdoors across all four seasons. 


You Come First at Cyclepath Kelowna

We’re here to help you with anything bicycle-related, whether that’s riding tips, advice about maintenance, servicing, new gear, or that shiny new bike you’ve had your eye on. 

No question is too silly and no job is too small. It’s our job to make sure you’re back up on your bike as soon as possible. We’ll help you any way we can, using language you’ll understand. 

While we give specialist advice, Cyclepath Kelowna is a bike store for Kelowna. We're just as eager to help biking beginners find their feet as we are to get expert cyclists out on a faster, lighter bike.   

Come in and see what a difference specialist advice can make.



cyclepath kelowna - a community resource

We see ourselves as a community resource. That’s why we’ve always placed such a heavy emphasis on being involved in community events.

ABOUT THe owners

GARRY NORKUM

Garry Norkum has become a familiar face at local bike events and a familiar voice on the radio over the past 25 years. He’s passionate about everything the Okanagan has to offer and loves providing practical advice about biking to anyone who’ll listen. 


He runs the Cyclepath store on the basis that the customer comes first and attributes the store’s glowing Google Reviews and unparalleled reputation for excellence to his customer-centric approach. 

JOAN NORKUM

Joan Norkum has taken on more of a behind-the-scenes approach to management, but is always there quietly helping get everything done. Her absence from the limelight hasn't made her any less of a star in store.


Between keeping the paperwork in order and the store supplies stocked, she somehow manages to keep the back of house in check so that things never fall to pieces when the store gets overrun.
