New location!
One of the oldest bicycle shops in Edmonton moved this year to its new location. After more than 30 years residing on 101 Avenue, at the east end of the city, current shop’s owner Calvin Berube moved the shop further south at Argyll Road, as part of the growing process when they needed more show room space.

There is no railroad to Mexico City from Acapulco and consequently the only way to get there is either by private automobile or by bus via Taxco. The highway connecting Acapulco via Taxco, to Mexico City – the “Autopista del Sol” – is one of Mexico’s best and it’s most expensive toll-road.
