A Way of Life.
Lochside Cycles is all about putting more people on bikes. Our passion for cycling, and the city we live in is what goes into every bicycle and accessory we create. We hope you enjoy them just as much as we do!
Our core mission is to keep all Lochside products functional, stylish and minimalistic without a hefty price tag attached. We believe riding is a way of life, and that bicycles are an extension of ourselves. Lochside bikes are designed and built for all types of riders, from urban to country to somewhere in between.
Lochside Cycles was founded 2013 in Victoria, BC, by Richard and Brian; two brothers from Northern Vancouver Island that share a love for cycling and the outdoors. After riding Vancouver Island’s diverse terrain for years and meeting more like-minded people along the way, the brothers set-out to build a local company that was based on progressive products at an affordable price-point.
"[Lochside] saw room in the local market for minimal, stylish, yet functional bikes, and they’ve really created such a gorgeous collection. With attainability in mind, they also somehow keep the prices reasonable so that occasional riders, like myself, still find their offerings accessible."
"The thing that attracted me to Lochside in the first place was that they had a selection of city bikes, one of which was a cruiser. Riding in an upright position just seems so much more natural and feasible to me."
"The Victoria-based company is owned by two brothers, who make bikes that are perfect for the city: well-made, functional, simple, and stylish."
"The Canadian bike company is based out of Victoria, BC and they have created a phenomenal business, taking their passion for cycling and combining it with their appreciation for great style."
"We love being able to meet the people we work alongside with, and it was so great to meet Richard, and learned first hand about Lochside, how it came to be, and the heart behind their business."
"Last weekend I had the opportunity to take a ride around Victoria while cruising on a Lochside bike. It had been a long time in the making and I was so excited when I finally got to get on one of their beautiful bikes!"
