With the hiring of Emily, we are able to once again extend our summer hours giving you more opportunity to come in and work on your bicycle.  So, our new Summer Hours  (beginning June 3) are:

Saturday – 9am to 2:30pm
As always, we are closed holiday weekends.

Student Summer Employment Opportunity at Cycle Transitions

Cycle Transitions is pleased to announce that it has again secured a Canada Summer Works grant for the purposes of hiring a student to work in the shop.  This is a repeat of the last three years – very successful endeavours – where our summer employee tended to the shop, assisted patrons and took care of sales. This year we will hire another student to fill that role.

This is a call for applicants; if you know of someone who could ably fill this role, please have them send their cover letter and resume to Bruce Bellaire – brucebellaire@gmail.com or Rick Nonnekes – rnonnekes@gmail.com. Our application deadline is May 21, the projected start date to be near the end of May or the beginning of June. The grant allows for 9 weeks at 30 hours per week with an hourly pay rate at $15. A copy of the job description can be found here.
