Ottawa’s Oldest Bike Shop, yet still young at heart!

After 60 years in business, we are now under
Ownership of Quick Cranks and moving to 437 Cooper St

Still your Full-Service Ottawa Bike
Shop with Dedicated Mechanics Ready to Help!

In an exciting development for cycling enthusiasts across Ottawa, Quick Cranks is thrilled to announce the acquisition of Fosters Sports Center, an institution and Ottawa’s oldest bike shop. This strategic acquisition marks a significant milestone in Quick Cranks’ mission to enhance the cycling experience in the region.

Fosters Sports Center, known for its deep-rooted history has been serving Ottawa’s cyclists from its 305 Bank St location for decades. As part of this transition, Quick Cranks has made the decision to close the original Fosters location and is excited to unveil a new Quick Cranks store, situated just one block over, at the prime intersection of Bank and Cooper.

Quick Cranks is dedicated to making the transition as seamless as possible for Fosters’  customers and looks forward to introducing them to a broad range of new offerings.

The grand opening of the new Quick Cranks location is slated for March 7th, with a soft opening on March 1st, and the community is invited to join in the celebrations. The event will feature special promotions, interactive workshops, and opportunities to meet with cycling experts.
