The Bike Pedaler is moving and we need your help to make it happen!  

Spring is here and so is bike season. It was certainly not our plan to be moving right now. When our current building at 25 Portland Street sold in January, we were told that we had at least a year of status quo, if not a new permanent home. That all changed in February.  We found out just a few weeks ago that 25 Portland Street would soon be demolished and that we needed to be out by May. Faced with this sudden deadline we were left hustling to find a new space and get it prepped and ready to service the quickly approaching bike season. We're happy to share that we have secured a space for the new shop just up the street at 61 Portland Street. You'll be able to easily find us on the same side of the street, just up the hill.

A move is big for any business, and with such a tight deadline we want to do it right. We know that even a few days lost from our regular schedule can throw a wrench (ha ha) into our service flow as well as effect the bottom line. We are committed to continuing to provide you with high quality service through this transition. With a little help from our amazing customers and community we are confident that we will be able to save the bike season while also giving you a new and improved shop that will stay right here in Downtown Dartmouth. 

From it's home at 25 Portland Street The Bike Pedaler has watched the community change over the years. When it first opened, The Bike Pedaler was one of only a few new businesses on Portland Street. Now, entrepreneurs continue to move into Downtown Dartmouth creating a fantastic atmosphere of vibrancy and culture. Marc and his staff have enjoyed being a part of this evolution and are proud to be members of a dynamic and growing business community. The focus for the shop has always included; supporting a repair culture, empowering cyclists, building community, and providing quality service in an inclusive atmosphere. When Marc first opened The Bike Pedaler eight years ago, the response from the community was truly overwhelming from the start (still recovering, actually). People flooded in with appreciation and support for a bicycle shop in Dartmouth. We have always felt supported by our customers and community and we know we can count on that support now.

We decided to run a crowdfunding campaign because we knew if you knew that we needed help, you would be there. We are asking you to help us with what we promise will be an investment in Dartmouth, and in the greater cycling community. In exchange, we have some great products and services that we know you will love!
