Cycle Outaouais opened its doors in 1975 with the name Cabane à Jean Sports. Jean Lacroix, sole proprietor for over 34 years, got his start in the basement of the hardware store where his father allowed him to repair bikes and store parts and accessories to help him start up his business. This led a few years later to the addition of a wing to that building, which is now known as Cycle Outaouais.
At the very beginning, the store offered a number of sports items such as golf clubs, hockey equipment, bikes and even fishing equipment, which explains the name Cabane à Jean Sports.
As the years went by, bikes became more important, and that is why the Cabane à Jean Sports became Cycle Outaouais in 1984. The store has continued to change its interior to better meet your needs. And, over the years, four additions were made to increase the surface area of the store. Also, in 2005, the exterior was renovated to reflect the professionalism of our store.
Over time, drawn by a growing selection of specialized products, a wider clientele began to frequent the store, which quickly became the uncontested leader in the sale of bike-related products in the Outaouais region. In 2002, Jean decided to introduce spinning in the store. Since cycling is a seasonal sport, spinning was a good complement in the fall and winter. Still today, after all these years, spinning courses are offered by trainers from September to March.
In 2010, in the spirit of innovation and in support of physical exercise, Cycle Outaouais started offering a new line of products: pedal Go-Karts. As you can see, innovation is very important to us and we will continue to offer you the widest variety of products and services in the coming years.
Cycle Outaouais stands out for its unparalleled service and its quality products that are recognized throughout the cycling world. Come and visit our store and see for yourself!
