Norco John Henry is pleased to announce our sponsorship of the Brio Cycling Club based here in North Vancouver. Brio Cycling club aims to be an introductory and fun based road riding club for kids and the youth on the North Shore. We provided bikes and will be providing repair services to the club throughout the year in an effort to keep these kids out on the road putting in KOM’s.BRIO CYCLING CLUB
We were very pleased to provide Norco Valences and Search to the club for their riders and strongly support the development of kids and youth cycling programs here on the shore. We strongly believe in getting kids out on bikes early as Norco provides a huge range of kids bikes for all types of riding including our new 24” wheeled Valence.
Perfect for any aspiring road racer looking to get a jump on the competition. On the 27th of March, we hosted Brio Cycling club here at the shop to provide some bike mechanic skills training to the kids, it covered a basic pre-ride safety check, basic maintenance and flat tire repair and tube replacement, hosted by Store Manager, Tristan O’ Callaghan.
Everybody had a fun time, even the parents may have learned a thing or two.
Keep an eye out for these kids climbing Cypress, Seymour or flying past you in Stanley Park! If you are looking for more information with regard to Brio Cycling Club, call in store or go to their website briocycling.com
2017 Norco Carbon Range and Carbon Sight Launch Party
On March 2nd, 2017 we hosted an after-hours launch party in conjunction with Norco for the release of the new 2017 Norco Carbon Sight and Carbon Range that was open to ambassadors and public. Throughout the evening all of the staff had a chance to meet and speak to customers and discuss the new platforms.
Norco’s Pat Mulrooney gave a very detailed demonstration of the new platforms and the staff shared our experiences on the new bikes. We talked about everything from cosmetics and specs to climbing and descending.
It was great getting to hear feedback from our customers and getting to know them better
For those lucky enough to attend, there was a new purchase incentive that was given out towards a new Carbon Sight or Range as well as a draw for a Norco Rio Vista cruiser!
We had the 2017 Norco Carbon Range in 29” and 27.5” wheel and the Carbon Sight in 27.5” and 29” wheel.
