For all you caffeine obsessed cyclists out there (and I know there's a few of you) make sure to add Fix to your map of bike friendly coffee spots. They're a coffee bar, bike shop and bike gallery, all under one roof at 80 Gladstone Avenue, between Queen and Dundas. The multi purpose space will see them doing specialty coffee and teas, in-house baked goods, selling everyday city bikes and smart bike accessories. While also providing full service in our repair shop!

The grand opening of the cafe and gallery will take place Wednesday, January 18th, from 7-10pm. Come for some beer, food, music and appreciation of all things bike and coffee. Until then they're open for business with full free service in the bike shop until Saturday, January 14. Pop by and say hi if you can!

According to owner Fred Sztabinski: “Bikes and coffee are a natural pair, and part of an urban lifestyle. I wanted to help create a space that brought the two together - a place where you can sip a fine espresso while you check out a cool magnetic bike light, or taste a delicious house-made scone while we repair something on your bike.”

The bike gallery’s first exhibition features the Detroit Bicycle Company. Stunning contemporary work inspired by vintage design.  The plan is to rotate the exhibitions every 3-4 months, featuring a unique craft bike maker each time.

Keep your ear to the ground for other events. As a CycleTO business member they're already in talks to making the space available for ward group meetings. Once things get up and running Fred Sztabinski hopes to host other partnered events.
