the shop

OAK BAY BICYCLES has served the Victoria bicycle market for over 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

Oak Bay Bicycles Spandads Bike Drive 1Up Salvation Army YYJ‘Tis the season! 🐼🚴‍♂️🎄

After a very successful first BIKE DRIVE last year, the Spandads are doing it again! Last year, they collected over a hundred bikes and we got about half them rolling safely.

There’s a couple of ways you can help:
1. Drop them a line at and let them know you have a bike for them to pick up. They are scheduling pickups for Saturday, December 7th – and will be in touch!

2. Purchase the window of the day of our in-store advent calendar (which is filled with little goodies and surprises) Proceeds will go towards parts the collected bikes might need when we fix them up at the shop – suggested donation is $15.

Oak Bay Bikes is proud to partner up again with the Spandads and 1Up Victoria Single Parent Resource Centre, as well as The Salvation Army, to ensure that the bikes are tuned up nicely and delivered to families that will really appreciate them.

Oak Bay Bikes, Victoria Wheelers, fundraiser, ride for shim, gear swap, Customer Appreciation Day, November 16 2019

In case you missed the Victoria Wheelers‘ annual GEAR SWAP and/or their SPECIAL SATURDAY RIDEGive for Shim” (on November 16) you can contribute to Shim’s rehab via this link:

All proceeds from the ride and this year’s Gear Swap went to Shim who was involved in a serious accident with an automobile that’s left him requiring long term rehab. Shim is the kind of guy that is always up for the next hill or the next attack. We have no doubt he’ll push through this as he has always approached adversity: hard as nails.

Our website is having a bit of a hiccups – we apologize – and are busy working on it.
