The Bike Barn
The Bike Barn is a family owned bike shop located in Penticton, BC. Originially started by Jack and Jenny Prowse as Prowse Cycles in the early 70's, the shop is now run by their son Chris Prowse, his wife Lisa, and their business partner Will Pratt who joined the business as an owner in the mid 2000's.
The Barn has become a local institution for those cycling in the Penticton area. Over the years we have been involved with nearly every cycling event that has come to town including the Ironman Canada Triathlon, which was the second Ironman in the world after Hawaii and would eventually attract over 3000 competitors at its peak.
We continue to support other events including the Prospera Granfondo Axel Merckx, Peach Classic Triathlon, Challenge Penticton, The Test of Humanity and many others.
Our aim is to provide you with the best cycling experience possible. Whether you are just starting out, or you are destined for the Tour de France we want to maximize your enjoyment on the bicycle. For us this is a way of life and we welcome cyclists of all types to stop by the shop where we will do our best to aid your cycling pursuits.
