“I’m so happy with the new store,” said Anne-Marie Gagnon, owner of Liv Vancouver – the first Liv brand store in North America.  “It turned out even better than I imagined and I’m looking forward to making it a hub for women’s cycling in Vancouver.”

Gagnon is inviting everyone to stop by on Friday, February 17, between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., to help celebrate the store’s official Grand Opening. As part of the festivities, visitors will receive 10% off accessories and be treated to giveaways, coffee and baked goods.

In addition to the opening, Liv Vancouver has already filled its calendar with a series of hands-on bicycle repair and maintenance clinics, weekly group road rides, and even an off-road Sea to Sky Trail adventure from Squamish to Whistler and back. Registration is open for all of these events.

“This is only the beginning,” promised Gagnon, who plans to offer a lot more cycling adventures, rides, clinics, camps, and ways for women to learn about the sport she’s so passionate about.

As Liv Vancouver continues to generate buzz, Gagnon recently received the news that Liv Cycling Founder and Giant Bicycles Chairperson Bonnie Tu will make a rare trip from Taiwan to get a closer look at the store. While she’s in town, Tu will join Liv Vancouver’s Sunday group ride on March 19. The weekly fitness rides kick off on Sunday, February 19.

The highly anticipated women’s focused bicycle boutique located in Vancouver’s hip West 4th shopping district, marked its soft opening last month and has already received lots of interest from women riders of all levels, ages, and interests from across the region.
