The shop handles Kona, Santa Cruz and Norco bikes. The guys at the shop are also involved in the building of the new dirt jump and pump track park which should be opening by summer.

Customer Service

All the parts and expertise to keep you rolling. I have even witnessed them robbing parts off of there rides just to get riders back out on the trails. They have bike rentals for all ages and level of riding and if your into kayaking they have that too.

The Shop is fantastic. We were on Hornby Island during the off season for some great Hornby Island Trail Riding and needed some quick repairs made to a couple of the bikes. The shop had the guys repaired and ready to roll in pretty quick time. Fantastic service.

Customer Service

What more can you say about a shop that just doesn't talk the talk ,but also walks the walk. These guys not only fix bikes, they also sell great gear and they build and maintain a fantastic network of trails. They also put out what is probably the best Mountain Bike Trail map there is.

We showed up for the four days of riding on the last weekend in March after the Island having just gome through winter and already the trails were cleared and ready for some fast single track riding....first class

If you are on the island make sure you stop buy the shop and get some local pointers from the shop guys....Even after four days on the Island we had not had our fill of the trails and will be back soon.

This local shop has it all, and packed in to a groovy little space. Located next door to the best coffee shops on the island it's no trouble to drop off my bike for service, wander around with a coffee, and come pick it up. I bring my bikes all the way to Hornby to get it serviced because the quality of mechanic work rivals that of way bigger shops.
They also are an excellent resource for all things outdoors on Hornby. They have bike rentals, kayak rentals and tours, maps, skimboards, etc.

Customer Service

The two guys that run the joint are very friendly and courteous. And their local knowledge is extensive. They seem to be very involved in local cycling advocacy and the trail system.

Continuously in operation since 1984 under various names Hornby Outdoors is a very approachable, efficient and friendly place for parts, mechanic work, information, trail advocacy and group rides.

In short it rocks!

And now they have skim boards, kayaks and even electric bikes!

Come ride.

Living on a little island there are no other options - but that aside, this shop is fantastic. Great, reliable and honest service. Same goes for the guys, Jer and Ira. As a daily rider I would be lost without them and even if I had options this would still be the place I would go.
