Lake Country Cycle is a family owned and operated business. Clifford Sewell and Cameron Donald, step-father and step-son, initially planned the venture in the summer of 2009, and were later joined by the younger son, Nicholas Sewell. As a group, they all attended the Winterborne Bicycle Institute in Guelph, each receiving their Professional Bicycle Mechanics Certificate. Upon returning from Ontario they set to work preparing to set up the old GreekHouse Deli building as Lake Country’s new cycle shop, opening their doors November 12th of 2009.
Cliff, having been in business locally for 25 years, wished to embark on a new family operated business venture. Cameron, being a father of 3 young girls, was looking for a healthy life style for his family, while providing employment for himself and doing something he enjoyed. Nicholas, having lived out of province for the past 2 years, returned to spend time working with the family.
Cameron started spending most of his free time cycling in his teens and made many trips into Kelowna for parts and repairs. He realized, even then, that a local shop would mean less time travelling and more time riding. Now that he has a shop of his own, Cameron intends to organize riding groups with other cyclists he encounters through the business, and hopefully be out riding for pleasure at least a few times each week. Cameron and Nicholas will each be looking to ride with groups on various types of terrain.
Everyone at Lake Country Cycle is dedicated to serving the people of Lake Country, and will do all that they can to see to your cycling needs.
