Much of Calgary has been eagerly anticipating the Good Life move but the location remained a closely guarded secret. In the past two weeks, people have been asking daily about the new location. After months of searching followed by weeks of lease negotiation, the Good Life Community Bike Shop is thrilled to announce that we are moving to the Mission area (commonly known by many Calgarians as 4th Street SW). This area is quite popular not only for its many bars, restaurants and of course the Lilac Festival in May, but also for its proximity to downtown, the 2nd Street bikeway, and the Elbow River pathway.
The new address for the Good Life Community Bike Shop will be #2, 2100 – 4th Street SW (next to Ducky’s Pub). The staff hope to re-open up at the new location in early September.
This fall, Calgarians will be able to access this popular non-profit bike shop on 4th Street, where Good Life can continue its to empower Calgarians through programs centered around used bicycles including youth Earn-A-Bike programs, work-trade programs, work experience for adults with disabilities and much more. All Calgarians are welcome to drop in to learn how to fix their bikes by staffers or volunteers, buy or earn refurbished bikes, or volunteer for a great cause.
What do Good Lifer’s say about the move? Staffer, Jackie Mann, says “4th street is a great location, just off the river pathway and close to Erton Stampede C-Train. Leaving Kensington is tough but it will be a lot of fun to join the 4th Street community”
To ensure that we have a smooth transition and open in a timely manner, Good Life is still seeking volunteers to help.
