Oak Bay Bikes has served the Victoria bicycle market for 85 years. I took over the helm in 1988 and have guided the store through the continued evolution of bicycles.
The industry is blessed with many passionate and capable people, and I have dedicated many of my efforts to ensure that OBB is represented by the best: people who love bikes, ride what they sell and service, and are genuinely excited about helping people make the right selections.The degree of our place in your cycling life is yours to decide, and please take confidence that no matter how small or large our involvement, my desire is to serve your needs to the highest standards.
Enjoy your riding, Karl Ullrich: Owner
