You are why we are here


Thank you for helping to make us your bike shop over these last 60 years!


In 1959, Russ and Marion Hay opened the doors to a new bike shop in Victoria, and ‘Russ Hay’s the Bicycle Shop’ was born. In 1974, a young couple, Mike and Ambriss Clermont, saw an opportunity to continue to develop something great. They bought Russ Hay’s and it’s been in the family ever since.


Your smile as you throw a leg over your first or 50th set of wheels. Your passion for the open road and trail. Your motivation to get up early in the morning while it’s still dark and spin your way to work or school. Your determination to be your best self on two wheels.


You are why we are here.


We sat down recently to talk about who and what we are, and who and what we want to be in the years to come.


We want to be your bike shop.


We want you to feel comfortable here.


We want you to walk through our doors in Victoria and Sidney and feel like you are part of our family — because you are.


Life is full of bright and dark, sun and rain (and occasionally even snow), and we’re here to keep you rolling through it all.
