Velo Max Bike Shop in Cheticamp, Cape Breton

The other week I was on vacation visiting my mom’s hometown of Cheticamp, Cape Breton. For anyone who has been to Cheticamp can attest for it’s surrounding beauty and welcoming nature of it’s residents’.

I also had the opportunity to drop into Velo Max Bike Shop located in Cheticamp. Andre was working away on a bike, but took the time to chat about the state of cycilng in the area, bikes, and all things good in general. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit albeit brief.

Andre is certainly passionate, and keeps tabs on the local scene in the area whether it be on the road or the limited mountain bike scene. I wish time had allowed to go for a ride with him and maybe a post ride meal/beverage at one of the great local pubs or restaurants, but that will have to wait for next summer for me. For the rest of you if you are in the area, drop by and say hi to Andre. He is located on the waterfront overlooking the beautiful Cheticamp Harbour.
